Extra-long ties - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I think that extra long ties are the only way to go. The rule of thumb is anybody over 6'2" should wear an extra long tie. I must admit, I have also been guilty of Scotch tape.

At 6'7"I ended up getting a tie from Sam Hober, and ended up getting one 75" long to be long enough. I have a 19.5" neck and RTW x-long are still way to short, I was tying the knot entirely with the back blade and it made tiny knots.

Nordstrom this season has Zegna ties in XL (I think online only), at $185 a piece.

6'3" here, and I'd also prefer extra long ties. They're just so hard to find over here, apart from bespoke.

 

It's not because of the rear loop, I'd never use it anyway, but the FIH looks sooo tiny with most ties (even the double FIH) in relation to my torso. If I go 'adventurous' and tie a more complicated knot the short end sticks out only for an inch or so, which looks really off IMO.

Higher rise trousers can be a solution as well. The higher the waistband, the shorter you need to tie your necktie.

I've found four London shops for those extra-long ties:

Loro Piana
E. Marinella
Kiton
Rubinacci

All need to be special ordered (surcharge) and take > 1month.

The most substantial are Loro Piana, with Rubinacci being the flimsiest. Just picked up an extra-long Kiton in plain navy colour. Boring but nice.

The Kiton folk were extraordinarily helpful. They were able to advise on every aspect, such as whether I should have a slightly bulbous shape to the tie (what's this feature called?).

Hope that helps someone

Sam Hober is still my default setting on these-- good workmanship, fair prices, and a nice line of classic patterns. And you really get your own pattern.

Capelli will do bespoke if asked by the right source. When Ambrosi and Napoli Su Misura have rolled through town, they have come with wonderful swatches. Very expensive.

There are a handful of cheaper option. The US catalogues (Land's End, and probably LL Bean and a few others) have a surprisingly good selection. Andrew's Ties in NYC has quite a few, and there may be others that I just can't remember now.

Overall, the situation is much better than it was 10 years ago.

I'm 5'8 and most ties are too long for me to do a neat FIH frown.gif

thetiebar.com has some great extra long ties. I've got two of them so far and my only complaint is that they make the extra long regular silk ties 3.75" at the widest point instead of 3.5" like their regular length. But it's hardly a dealbeaker. I suppose I should disclose that the only knot I use is a half-windsor.
