Style Hack: How to Make a DIY Skinny Necktie from a Thrift Store Tie

Secondhand stores and thrift shops are filled with neck ties with all kinds of cool patterns and textures, and most go for only a dollar or two each. The problem? They’re often way too wide to match the lapels of modern suits.Good news: its actually super extra incredibly easy to alter the width of a tie, and it takes precious little knowledge and equipment to do it, like an iron and scissors. No sewing machine required.

Crafter Mark Montano made this helpful video to walk you through the process.
