tie length

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

What is the appropriate length of a tie? I tend to wear my ties so they just touch the upper portion of my belt buckle, but I see some rather savvy people wearing their ties either an inch shorter or an inch longer than that.....

Right above the buckle is fine

pdxguy,

 

i think you might find this website helpful.

 

http://www.tmlewin.co.uk/TM-Lewin-TV/TM-Lewin-TV,en_GB,pg.html

 

they explain how to tie a tie, and also what lengths it should be at. usually, above the belt buckle is the norm.

 

hope this helps.

I usually do the above belt buckle rule

I think it looks best with the tip of the tie just touching the belt buckle, like the OP describes.

I tie it to end somewhere around the middle of the buckle or even slightly lower. Since I don't wear suspenders, pants inevitably slip down a bit during the day. Any gap between tip of the tie and belt buckle looks 100x more horrible than a slightly longer tie as long as it does not go below the belt line

Usually what bothers me is the narrow end of the tie end up longer than the wider blade, some how I think that always looksweird to me

This I don't mind as long as it's no more than about an inch or so.

This is what I do as well.
