Short ties - 56" and under - Page 2

SkinnyT,

I understand your search, sadly you are not going to find a luxury conservative tie in the price range that you are talking about unless the tie is on sale or used.

Some thoughts:

1) The quality of the silk in that website won't be anywhere near the silk that you like in the photos. The silk will be more like the Tie Bar ties and will most likely be low grade Chinese silk.

2) If you are price sensitive try the last tie in your list as it is the closest to what you like.

3) If you are very lucky the length may work for you but as mentioned in this thread there are a number of variables for length not just height. Just as there are a number of variables in construction and silk quality.

Good luck with your search.

Thanks for your comments. I am not looking for luxury, just decent ties that look good and shorter than average.I understand that construction and quality won't be amazing,but I still dont understand how a silk tie can simply 'look' cheap.

The March 12, 2016, entry, at http://oxfordclothbuttondown.com/ - "True Confessions of a Trad: The Blunt Cut - addresses this very issue of making a four-in-hand knot work for one who is 5'8".

Like with all things, you get what you pay for to a point. They look okay now, in the picture, but the silks will be lower quality the overall build will be lower quality (leading to a likely shorter life). I'm a huge fan of going pre-owned when on a budget. You get excellent quality at a very affordable price. I'd definitely try eBay. 

 

If you get a good quality tie and a cheap one next to each other you will see the difference. Cheap ones will look more dull, will tie worse knots, the printing will not be that great which contributes to the "dull" silk. (When I say dull, I just mean the colors are not as saturated and high quality. Like the difference between cheap and artist quality oil paints) And like I said, the cheap tie will look worse after much less wearing time than the good ones.

For all those looking for shorter ties, I am 5'8"and I feel your pain.  Any of the ties on the chippneckwear.com site can be shortened to the length you want. Ties can be "blunt cut and bound" at no extra cost, or can be re-cut to a point for a $15 charge. The great majority of those who have requested that I shorten a tie opt for the blunt cut - when you put the tail of the tie through the label and pin it to your shirt no one can see it.

Is there anyone who does short ties and which don't cost 100 dollars?

I have a new bespoke necktie company ghada stockholm which are handmade in Napoli DM or send me a email contact at ghadastockholm. Se
