These were from Brooks Brothers, with the 40% + 15%. Bought them all extra long. I'm a tall guy (6'1"), and I thought these were the way to go.

Today I went to the store, and asked to see the extra long ties, and they said they had just a few.

"Is this for you?" asked the man.
"Yes." I said.
"I just don't see it." he replied.

How far down your belly should a tie be?

Near the top of your belt/trouser waist. (+0.5 inch down max)

Assuming you wear your pants at your proper and natural waist, your tie should come down to that level.

You shouldn't need an extra long tie if you're 6'1" unless you're all torso and no legs.

I'm screwed then. Will need to pay for shipping.

One of the comments said that if you were above 6' tall, you should go for the extra long, and he was a top 50 contributor.

You just bought 37 or 62 ties from Brooks Brothers?? (Can't tell if it was at the rate of $45 or $75 on the site)

Are you a troll or just dumb? Are these ties supposed to be a lifetime supply? Are they gifts?

Couldn't you have bought ties from a better maker with better designs?

Sounds like you could get a job at the Federal Reserve with how you spend money.

I don't even think BBs offers 62 XL ties.

I thought BB ties were pretty good.

This is supposed to be a starting point now that's I'll start working as a lawyer.

Can you return them?

I assure you that you can do much better.

And do you still think you need extra long ties?
