A warm greeting to my readers. I know it’s been a while you heard from me, I have been unavoidably unavailable. I went on a vacation which was quite a busy one😒, I’m back now🤗. You can ask for your packages in the comment section 😃.
I was at a dinner party recently, and there was something which I noticed that I will like to address. We all know when wearing a suit we either use a long tie or bow tie, it’s optional though. When I got to the dinner, I noticed some guys were not sure of the right or most preferred length when knotting a tie. I even saw a guy whose tie was showing below his coat😆. Wrong!
PROPER TIE LENGTH
I will be giving some clarity on the right length of a tie but first I will like to say a little about the history of a tie
The tie history
Why do men wear tie? I found out that the initial reason why men wore tie was basically for decoration and there was no functional reason attached to it. In the 1920’s and 1930’s, most men put on tie for the beauty of it and the tie was of a short length.
However, in recent times, ties are of longer length and are used for functional purposes, when attending interviews for example.
What is the proper length of a tie?
The length of a tie is either short, very long or on the waistband.
When going for a vintage look, making the length of the tie short isn’t a bad idea, but it will give u a childish look. Although, shorter guys need shorter ties😃.
Secondly, the tie length can be very long. In this case, the back blade is shorter while the front blade is longer that it comes out of the waist coat. This case can be distracting and doesn’t look nice and therefore not recommended.
Lastly, the length of the tie can be long. In this, the tip of the tie reaches the waistband or the buckle of your belt. This is the most preferred/proper tie length and what is expected when going for a formal meeting.
