The Teal Chronicles

Found: Long Neck Ties

December 5th, 2013

The typical neck tie is not long enough for tall men. Finding long ties is one of the biggest challenges when outfitting tall men for work. The neck tie which evokes sophistication and professionalism falls short of such an image because its length is too short.  A normal tie rests on the middle of the waist line for an average person, but on a tall guy, that normal tie ends up 4 or 5 inches above the waist line. A short tie reinforces the tall awkward  image.  

Many Long & Tall men are creative with how to compensate for these tie short comings. They either tie a half Windsor knot instead of a full Windsor knot to add two plus inches of tie length or they tie the knot higher up in order to extend the tie length. The problem with the latter is the back of the tie is too short to be placed in the back loop so it dangles freely and exposes the wearer’s dark secret: he is wearing clothes too small for him.

But there is good news, we have discovered a few long tie brands & retailers (listed below in no specific order) that will solve this problem!  All of these ties go well with a dress shirt and TEAL Premium Chinos.

 

Warm Regards,
