Speaking for myself I don't think this rule should be too prescriptive.As always, your look, fabrics and fit are impeccable. Well done! If I could offer one small suggestion after seeing a couple of your posts, your ties are about 5-6" too long, since the blades should ideally hit at the center of your waist band. Suggest buying shorter ties in the future, and for your current ones, go to an expert like Tie Crafters in NYC and have them shortened. It's where I send my ties and they do a fabulous job (they're also pros at cleaning ties without ruining the fabric).
When I wear high waisted trousers my outfit will normally be more balanced with the long blade going beyond the waist. Otherwise it can look very short.
It depends on one's anatomy, one rule does not fit all but balance always looks right.
