1960s ties for men shrank down from the 40s era of wide ties to the skinny tie in the 60s. Knit skinny ties were especially popular with trendsetting young men. Solids, as well as plaids, dots, and thick stripes, were in style. Woven skinny ties in particular were for every man. Most were a solid color or had diagonal stripes. As the decade progressed, textured ties were the latest and greats neckwear design. Tweed, nubby silk, and waffle polyester added interest to plain colors. Small monograms and designs in the center of the panel was also a trademark of 1960s ties.
70s men’s ties started off skinny but grew wide, very wide, to go with wide lapel suits. Fat butterfly bow ties were also trendy. Solid earth tone colors, pastels, and big geo prints were worn for business. Silk scarf ties were worn instead of neckties for a few years.
