Wish I would have ordered expedited delivery too, I just received an invitation to a party at the Italian Embassy two weeks from today and I would love to wear my newly ordered midnight blue grenadine.
Trying to figure out the correct length. I thought for some reason RTW ties were about 57" long.
Just measured several of mine (Marinella, Drakes, Cappelli) and they are about 62/3". I'd prefer a custom tie to be about an inch longer for a perfect fit, which would mean a length of 64".
Does this sound too long for someone who wears a 16" collar, 42" chest and is approx 6ft3?
Not really, I'm 6'4 with a 16.5/17 collar and I get mine 66-67 inches. It all depends how you wear your trousers and such though. If you wear high waisted trousers and slouch you'll need much shorter ones than if you wear low waisted trousers and have great posture.
Not saying 64 will be perfect, but it doesn't sound crazy to me
I ordered my first two ties from SH. I'm used to wearing cheaper ties, like $20-40 range. This will be my first "nice tie" pickup. I went with grenadine midnight blue and also a grenadine burgundy since they should match basic navy or grey suits.
