    Is there a simple way to estimate what length tie you need based on your waist to throat measurement or something similar?

    I'm 6'5" and I prefer my ties at 61-63" however, I can just about get away with a 59". I think you would be fine with the standard 59" tie, although perhaps you should go with a 60" tie just to be on the safe side.
