I go with bascially the width that rippetoe teaches. It works well for myself.
If I were to describe it, it would be my thumbs just outside shoulder width. A lot of guys in the gym tend to go uber wide think it 'hits' the shoulders better. I personally don't think there is much truth to this and I think it puts you at risk for injury.
Just my opinion.
