On those 10% days when the back is longer the the front I usually retie it, but once in a while I can't be bothered and call it sprezz. However, if the back is consistently longer than the front you should either learn how to tie a tie or buy shorter ties. 

Provided the front is hovering a few inches above the trousers, it isn't about tying ability. It's either about the choice of knot (4IH vs HW) or the tie being too long.

When I first started, I used HW, so the narrow end was never too long. When I switched to 4IH, most of my ties were too long (though none of my Hobers, obviously). I think I tucked the narrow end to my trousers sometimes and once folded it up and clasped it with a tie clip (which works well, for those of you who are bothered). So those are two other solutions (besides switching knots, buying shorter ties--greatly limiting your options--or sending ties off to Tiecrafters)

I like Braddock's style a lot in general, but that one is not working for me.

Double FIH.

Double four-in-hand will work in some cases, but it also increases the size of the knot somewhat which might not be ideal for everyone.

 

I think the bottom line is that the only way to get it exactly the way you want it (both with regard to blade length and knot size) is to get the tie length that’s right for you. 

 

Cheers,
