    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 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,

    Ac

    Calvin - is that a Drapers linen? Who's the tailor - looks neapolitan.

    You are entitled to your opinion. I disagree though. It doesn't look like shite, nor does it look optimal IMHO. Its a solution to wearing a long tie I bought when most of my trousers were of lower rise. It's not particularly hip or #menswear though, I'll give you that.
