    Based on the recent interest generated regarding shorter ties I thought that this poll might be warranted. Anything of course can be done, however I have often found that with these kind of things, many people talk about interest when in fact they arent really interested or couldnt care either which way.

    I have this exact problem. Every tie I buy is too long. Either I have to tuck them in, which I hate or go under and over the skinny end through the loop at the back of the tie. Width also bothers me but I can live with that. Personally, I am a big fan of high constrasting colors, not a big fan of gradients.

    I voted for the seven-fold, though I'd like to see shorter ties in all the choices listed despite not being quite sure what the four-fold and saddle stitch are exactly.

    Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the short tie, given two responses...

    LOL. I actually got two emails regarding this, one from a previous customer who is only a LURKER and cant vote or post. I kinda wonder why it is that people raise issues and then when they are addressed noone seems to care... I suppose its more fun to complain about something than it is to actually get results.
