Which tie is correct, long or short? How to adjust the length that even beginners can understand!

Once you become a member of society, you will be required to dress appropriately not only when you go to work, but also in business situations such as business negotiations and meetings with business partners.

Even if you have gone to great lengths to communicate smoothly, if you are not well-groomed, the other person may think that you are unfit for work or that you are unclean.

Those who wear business suits and ties to work should be especially careful.

Many of the newly hired new employees are not used to wearing a necktie on a regular basis, so they do not know the ideal necktie length or how to adjust the length, and are worried about how to wear a tie. There should be a lot of people who are.

This time, we will introduce the appropriate length of the tie, how to adjust the length of the tie easily even for beginners, and points to note.

1. Know the ideal length of your tie!

Did you know that there is an “ideal length” for a tie?

It is of course important to choose a tie that suits the height and body shape of the wearer, but the ideal length for a necktie is [approximately 142cm].

Most ties are the lengths listed above, although lengths vary slightly depending on the manufacturer.

And what is more important than the total length is the length when the tie is tightened.

There is a length that looks the cleanest and most balanced.

It's long enough for the tip of the tie to hang over the belt buckle.

If the tip of the necktie is above or below the buckle of the belt, the overall balance will be lost and it may give an uncool impression to the other person.

Many new employees may be concerned about the brand and color of the necktie.

However, if you wear a tie without knowing the basic length of the tie, you won't be able to make the best use of the fashionable parts such as the brand and color.

Please keep the above length in mind.

You can avoid going too far from what is appropriate for a business setting.

This tie has many advantages.
First, I like the color. It is made with orthodox colors and patterns so that it can be adapted to various business scenes.
You can choose from 6 types of navy blue, so you can choose the one that suits you best.
In addition, this tie is an excellent item that does not get dirty.
The surface is treated with Teflon (water repellent), which is famous for frying pans, so it repels cooking oil and spilled coffee.
From the point of view of appearance, a dirty necktie is a no-no. Recommended when you don't want to get dirty.

2. What happens if the tie is long or short?

Wear a tie that is the right length, neither too long nor too short.

A tie that is too short will not reach the buckle of your trouser belt, making you look fat and giving the impression that you are cramped overall.

Be careful if you have a thick neck or a large body.

If the necktie is too short, the length cannot be adjusted, so you may need to purchase another one that is just the right length.

Long size ties are also on sale, so it would be nice to try them.

Conversely, if the tie is too long, the point of the sword will hang under the buckle of the trouser belt, giving the other person a slovenly impression.

This is not good either.

Also, a long necktie can get in the way when you eat, or it can flutter around and interfere with your demeanor.

If you buy a long necktie, refer to the length mentioned above and adjust it to the appropriate length by devising a way to tie it.

3.Ties from overseas brands are often long

If you are looking for a stylish necktie, there are probably many people who are sensitive to overseas brands and are considering purchasing them.

In general, foreign-made ties are made for foreigners who are taller than Japanese on average, so many of them are long.

However, the average height of Japanese people is shorter than that of foreigners, so if you wear a tie from a foreign brand, it may end up looking too long.

However, the majority of foreign brand neckties sold in Japan are made for Japanese people with a length of 140cm to 148cm, so if you check the length carefully, even foreign brand ties can be used. You can buy standard lengths.

If you are a beginner, we recommend that you buy a Japanese-made necktie as much as possible, but if you really want to wear a tie from a foreign brand, check to see if the store that carries it has one for Japanese customers. You should take a look.

Once you've mastered adjusting the length of your necktie to some extent, or when your fashion sense has improved, it's a good idea to try a long type made overseas.

Also, if you want to wear a tie from a high-end brand, we recommend a famous brand such as Hermès or Louis Vuitton.

4. How to adjust the length of the tie

Beginners may find it difficult to adjust the length of the tie as they wish.

Nowadays, you can easily find out how to adjust the length of a tie on the internet or on YouTube, so you can easily practice.

How to adjust the length of the tie well, there is a little trick.

For those who keep getting shorter or longer even after re-tightening their tie many times, please try to understand the trick and put it into practice.

There is actually a small seam on the back of the tie, and if you bring this seam between the 3rd and 4th button on your shirt and then start tying the tie, you'll end up with a nice tie length.

However, in the case of a long type tie, the above length adjustment method may not work.

In that case, tie the large sword side of the tie so that it hides half the buckle of the trouser belt, and adjust the length of the small sword side later.

If the stiletto side is too long, you can adjust the length of the tie by folding it.

A word of caution here.

When adjusting the length of your tie, be sure to check the length and how to tie it by looking in the mirror.

By adjusting your appearance while looking in the mirror, you can check your appearance from another person's point of view, so you can improve your appearance properly and reduce mistakes.


5. Solve long ties by tying them!

As mentioned above, if you cannot adjust the length of a long necktie properly, the other person will look at you with a slovenly image, and if you are a client at work, there is a risk that your future relationship will be hindered.

Therefore, it is important to adjust the length of the tie so that it is neither too short nor too long.

Let's introduce how to tie a long necktie in several patterns.
