What is actually proper tie length? Take it easy, we will tell you!
When you stand upright, the necktie's tip is supposed to rest somewhere between the top and the bottom of your belt buckle. This means that different body height (length of upper body) will need different tie length. For most people, tie length can be adjusted by how you tie your tie. But extra long or extra short people may need extra long or extra short ties. See more in our tie length chart below.
Other Things That Can Affect Tie Length
We know that body height can affect tie lengt (see tie length chart below). But there are also other things that affect tie length:
Larger tie knots:
Larger tie knots (such as Full Windsor Knot) require more tie length. So if you are located in the upper part of the "standard tie length" interval in the chart below, we suggest to choose a extra long tie if you will use it with larger tie knots.
Larger neck size:
Neck size affects tie length. As a rule; if the total of your body height in inches and your necksize (circumference) in inches is 93 inches or more, you will need a extra long tie.
