    Anyone have any experience/advice on having a 61" extra-long 7-fold tie shortened to regular (57"-58") length? I found a beautiful Kiton 7-fold that is only available in an extra long and I'm wondering if having it shortened with screw up the proportions once it's tied. Any thoughts?

    Take the tie to either Tiecrafters or John Kochis. They would know whether it is feasible.

    I sense that it is not worth the effort.

    i have had a good experience with tie crafters in the past but it was making a tie narrower.
