I think "silk cock" should be the de jure new epithet for a tie.

Before the internet machine, I never, ever recall seeing someone with 3 inches of back blade showing.

Even ton-sur-ton is possible. Try things out and see if it works.

Sorry to quote myself and get back to this, but here's an illustration of what I mean. A casual fit (don't be scared) in grayscale:

The tonal contrast between jacket, sweater and jeans seems quite low.

But there's plenty of colour and textural contrast (even if you leave out the dark/light shirt):

The best solution would be to shorten the tie, but it is not necessarily worth the cost. I doubt tall people have ever run into this issue.

Grass is always greener. I'm tall, and after discovering SF and Hober, Capelli, Marinella, I sold everyone of my ties (too short) and started replacing with proper length ones. Every season I see Ed's ties and can't get them. Also, I can't find a source for bespoke knit ties.

Well, Land's end has good quality extra long knit ties. 

 

I have a bunch of these as I used to be fat. Now they're too long and I have to use a Windsor with them. Which stretches them of course. 

 

Somebody talk to Hober.
