    A question on tie length. I wear a size 39 short jacket and like my tie to hit my belt buckle and perhaps a half inch below. What is the recommended tie length?

    David has a very good tutorial on estimating length for your first order on his website.

    If I recall, the best way is to take your best fitting tie in the knot you favor, and put it on. Measure that tie. Subtract or add any length from that length as needed to have it reach the goal length. David suggests having two inches difference between the rear blade and front blade when tied.

    After you get your first order you can adjust accordingly.

    As an FYI- I also wear a 39-40s jacket. I have a 16.25" neck and get my tie at 55".

    Ricini,

    I will be posting on the front page of our site silk updates and for other silk questions please email me - thank you.

    TaxGenius,

    ScurvyFreedman Has answered your question well.

    A few thoughts - it is important to actually measure, as some gentlemen have long or short upper torsos which can really change the measurements.

    Also the big end of your tie should be where you like it not where it makes a nice knot.

    Generally a half-Windsor needs an extra 2 inches in length compared to a four-in-hand knot.

    Grenadines can stretch over time, especially the longer lengths.

    The 2 inches difference between the long and small ends are a classic style point - however, some gentlemen prefer the small and big ends to be even. In that case getting the correct length is even more important.
