The right length – what's important?

A well-tied tie is only the perfect finishing touch for your outfit if it is neither too short nor too long. To make sure that you choose the correct length right from the start, you should keep the following basic rules in mind:

  • The wide, front end always covers the narrower end. When the tie is tied correctly, the narrow end is invisible. Good accessories feature loops for this purpose that keep the tie in place.

  • The tip of stylish ties of all types reaches down to the belt and no further.
