Spread collars, ties with minimal padding, and a half winsor is what I do. I'm not unusually short, but at 5'9" I occasionally have this issue when utilizing a 4-in-hand. The reason I buy ties with minimal padding is to keep the size of my tie knot in check. Of note: I'm a former college baseball player and built like a catcher so the half winsor looks very proportional on me. If you're 120 pounds, I can't help you.
