I’ve blogged before about how to tie my favorite tie, the windsor knot, and now I want to bring up the oft overlooked little bit about tie length.

Far far too many people out there have really short, or really long, ties. It’s all about balance.

The top of your tie, the wide end, should hang lower than the thin length. You really don’t want to see it. However, while you want to cover it, you don’t need this gigantic long tie.

The proper length for a tie is for the tip of the wide end to touch the top of your belt.

You might need to keep practicing until you get it right. And it goes without saying that you should not have droopy pants. There is nothing worse than seeing a guy with his pants hanging off his ass.
