Around 1944, ties started to become not only wider, but wilder. Widths reached 5 inches, and designs included Art Deco, hunting scenes, scenic "photographs", tropical themes, and even girlie prints, though more traditional designs were also available. The typical length was 48 inches. The Bold Look lasted until about 1951. Because the quantities per pattern were small, they were considered to be custom ties.
In the 1980s, narrower ties, some as narrow as 11⁄2 inches but more typically 3 to 31⁄4 inches wide, became popular again. Into the 1990s, as ties got wider again, increasingly unusual designs became common. Novelty (or joke) ties or deliberately designed to make a statement gained certain popularity in the 1980s and 1990s. These included custom ties featuring cartoon characters or pop culture icons. During this period, with men wearing their pants at their hips, ties lengthened to 57 inches. Custom ties became very popular during this time.
