I don't know the length of my tie! How long can you decide cool?


I don't know the length of my tie! How long can you decide cool?

Many people who wear ties are good at wearing colors and designs that suit them. However, many people don't care about the length of their ties, and some people are less attractive because of it.

You should have decided on a cool fashion, but if you are not conscious of the length of the tie, it will also lead to looking ugly. Therefore, it is important to understand the correct length.

This time, I will introduce you to the correct length of the tie and how to adjust it.

1. The correct length of a tie exists

Many Japanese people do not understand the correct length of a tie.

This is because when you wear a suit, you can only see the top of the tie, so you can hide it even if it is a little long. However, if you take off the suit jacket, Darran's stretched necktie may be visible no matter what, so be careful.

It is said that the length of the necktie that matches the etiquette is best when the tip of the thicker part of the necktie, called the big sword, rests halfway on the buckle of the trouser belt.

Therefore, it is not good manners to make it shorter or longer than this length. For example, if the sword is below the belt position, it may look sloppy and tacky.

Also, in casual situations, the correct length of tie is not so important, but it can be rude if you don't wear the proper length in a work setting.

The bottom part of the tie is often hidden and not visible, but it is better to pay attention to the fashion of the invisible part.

Just enough to hide the belt buckle

The correct length of the tie is said to be just enough to cover the belt buckle.

However, you shouldn't worry too much about minor deviations. In general, if the length is off by 1 cm to 3 cm, it will still look beautiful, so fine-tune the length of the tie with a stiletto.

Ties that are too long or too short are super ugly

If the necktie is too long or too short, it will make you look unfashionable or make you look like you have a long torso and short legs, so you should be careful. To be more specific, if the necktie is long, it will be difficult to move, and there is also the risk of wrinkles and twists.

Also, it is not acceptable to wear a tie that is too short. If the length of the tie is too short, it will give the impression of being flirty to the surroundings, or it will make you feel rough as if you are going out to play.

As a standard for choosing the correct length of a tie, it is safer not to choose a tie that is too short or too long, such as 120cm or 160cm, for people with a normal body type.

2. If the length of the tie cannot be adjusted well

Many people know the correct length of a tie, but find it difficult to tie and adjust it by themselves.

However, in this day and age, you can find information on how to properly wear a tie and its length on YouTube, so it is possible to wear it correctly while watching it. Especially for people who live alone, it is often the case that there is no one around to check their coordination.

In such a case, it would be very helpful to be able to wear a tie correctly while watching You Tube. In addition, when adjusting the tie to the correct length, it is important to choose the length that suits your height.

I think that clothes that fit the standard Japanese body type are sold in stores, but if you are too tall or too short, there are cases where the standard body type does not fit.

Therefore, before buying a tie, it is important to consult with the store clerk or wear it properly in the fitting room to make sure the size and length are correct. In addition, if the length of the tie cannot be adjusted well, please try the following method as it can be easily done.

adjust the back of the tie

For a better look, place the back seam of the tie between the 3rd and 4th button of the shirt. Generally, if the length of the tie is not correct, the starting position of the tie is often misaligned.

Therefore, in order to tie the tie to the right length, it is important to make good use of the seams.

Also, the spacing between the buttons varies depending on the type of shirt you wear. So be careful with shirts that need to be tweaked to fit just right.

Adjust with the thick part of the tie

There is also a way to make good use of the thick part of the sword by adjusting the correct length of the tie. Especially if the necktie is long, it is easy to adjust the length to be just right by adjusting the large sword.

Even if you can adjust the thick part, the stiletto may be too long.

If the blade becomes long, you can wear it in slacks.

When wearing a suit, the lower part of the tie is often hidden from view. So, if the blade gets longer, it's okay to wear it in slacks.

If the short sword is longer than the big sword, it is recommended to put it in the slacks and hide it, as it can be adjusted in a short time. Also, in that case, a single knot can be used regardless of the thickness of the tie fabric.

However, since this is a somewhat lazy method, it is better to understand how to make the correct adjustment and then practice this adjustment method as a means to use when you are short on time or in an emergency.

This is because if you know how to adjust a number of ties correctly, you will be able to choose the best method for various occasions.

If it is difficult to adjust, cut and adjust

For people who don't have much time to adjust their ties or who have a lot of ties, there is a way to cut them if it is difficult to adjust.

However, if you cut it, the correct length of the tie will be fixed, so please use it as a last resort. Also, it is better to avoid cutting with scissors just because the stiletto of the necktie is hidden and cannot be seen.

In that case, rather than cutting it, I think it's better to contact the shop where you bought it and ask for advice, or ask a clothes remodeling shop to adjust it.

Also, if you received a tie as a gift, you should not cut it.

If the recipient wants to see you wearing the necktie you gave them, some people may be sad that they cut the necktie.

Depending on who you are with, you may think that you are rough and insensitive, so it is better to cut it as a length adjustment method, such as something that is in stock or cheap and easy to obtain.

3. Summary of necktie length

The correct length of the tie is said to be optimal when the wide end of the necktie, called the large sword, fits halfway over the buckle of the trouser belt for a standard Japanese figure.

However, there are individual differences in height and body shape, so it is necessary to deepen your understanding of other length adjustment methods. Also, if the length of the tie is too short, it tends to give the other person an impression of being too flashy or too rough.

On the other hand, if it is too long, it will make you look like you have a long torso or short legs, so it is important to adjust the length of the tie to suit you.
