    Horizontal/diagonal?
    Where on the tie? Between 3rd/4th button? 4th/5th?
    What occasions?
    Does it span the entire width of the tie? Just under? Just over?

    slightly diagonal, mine's shorter than standard to accomodate the 2.5 inch ties

    they've been back in style for as long as skinny ties have been back - like the last year or so

    Always wear one. Looks sloppy without.

    And 4/5.
