Size matters in tie, and this is your first consideration, with the base on the lapel of your jacket, match the right collar and proper width of the tie. You can do this by having the width of the tie looking the same as the average width of the lapel which is 2 1/2 inches.

Rule of thumb is that skinny ties are not to be worn for bigger body, while extra wide ties are not also suitable for slim men since this will not make them look bigger. For shorter men, it is advisable to wear a tie and lapel with a width of medium or narrow, since the height of the person is also an important feature to consider when wearing tie perfectly.
