After some more thought, it really depends on a lot. The height of the wearer, the girth....taller guys can pull off a tie below the waistband on high waisted trousers whle short guys should be in the trousers at all. Also, to comment on those old movies, the style at the time called for much shorter ties than we wear today. I have several vintage ties from the 20s, 30s and 40s and they're all much, much shorter, so I'm not sure thats the best guide.
