    What is the appropriate length of a tie? I tend to wear my ties so they just touch the upper portion of my belt buckle, but I see some rather savvy people wearing their ties either an inch shorter or an inch longer than that.....

    Right above the buckle is fine

    I usually do the above belt buckle rule

    I think it looks best with the tip of the tie just touching the belt buckle, like the OP describes.

    I tie it to end somewhere around the middle of the buckle or even slightly lower. Since I don't wear suspenders, pants inevitably slip down a bit during the day. Any gap between tip of the tie and belt buckle looks 100x more horrible than a slightly longer tie as long as it does not go below the belt line

    Usually what bothers me is the narrow end of the tie end up longer than the wider blade, some how I think that always looksweird to me

    This I don't mind as long as it's no more than about an inch or so.
