- Back in the day, ties were purely decorative and served no functional purpose; the only goal of it was to make you look good.
- Today, ties have definitely gotten longer but the overall length of the tie is hugely impacted by the balance between your front wide blade and back slim blade.
1. Front blade is as long as the back blade
2. Front blade be much longer than the back blade
3. Back blade much longer than the front
Because a tie has a fixed length, this balance really impacts how long your tie will be when it's tied.
But it's not all, other factors that affect the length are what knot you choose, what kind of tie you have, does it have a thick interlining? It's very thick if so, it creates a thick knot. For a thinner tie, it creates a thinner knot and therefore the tie is longer.
When your tie is overall very short, it provides you a vintage look or in the worst case, it can make you look like a child. So keep that in mind if you like very short ties.
So when the wide front blade is much longer than the back blade, chances are that it extends past your waistband and it peeks out underneath of your jacket, that's visually distracting because people look down and the triangular shape of the tie highlights your crotch which is very disadvantageous.
Personally, I don't use a keeper but I also prefer to tie my tie so both blades have about the same length. That way, it looks a little more casual, a little more nonchalant and it's a look that I personally enjoy.
So should you use a keeper or not? Well, traditionally it was something that was used by people but if you look at elegant men today, they oftentimes want the more sprezzatura feel with their tie and they intentionally do not use that keeper loop in the back.
Again, the way you wear your tie is an expression of your individual style and there's absolute no right or wrong. What matters is that you do it consciously and that you can repeat it every single time.
Another important element of the tie beside the length is the tie dimple.
So what's the proper and correct tie length for you?
Personally, I think it's best when the front blade and back blade tips are roughly the same length and just reach the waistband of your pants. Now, think about that for a second, every pair of pants is different, it has a slightly different rise and in combination with every tie being different, there are lots of variations. Some others argue the tips should be slightly longer and reach the buttonhole. Others shorter, some like it longer and past the waistband.
I like the waistband idea because that way, the tie does not peek out from underneath your jacket and it focus the viewer's attention to your face because of the V-shape of your jacket and the tie on top.
Unfortunately, most ties don't come in a general length and so you actually have to try things out until you find out what works for you and what doesn't. It takes a lot of trial and error and you have to practice but once you know what length your tie is and how long it has to be with a particular knot, it's going to be much easier for you to get the tie length right.
So what does that mean for a proper tie length? No one will win this argument because there's no absolute right or wrong, what matters is what you personally like.

The size of your neck, the length of your torso, the thickness of the tie material and the length of the tie... my neck is a 20” collar size - back in college, my collar was 23”... suffice it to say that all of my dress shirts are custom made
My husband is large and tall, and even the so called, "extra long" ties of 72" are not long enough. The small plate end up just a tiny tail below the knot, and the large plate ends up a few inches above his belt. I've got to sew him custom ties, or get bow ties.
I wouldn't say that you can wear whatever you like, because while this is true in once sense, it ignores the fact that perhaps the goal should be to wear what is most flattering, what sets you off in the best way. In that context having the thin blade hang down below the wide blade is not flattering, conveys that you don't know how to tie a tie properly, and makes you look like a slob who doesn't care. So if freedom is everything to you, then knock yourself out. But if being well presented matters, then ideally the short blade should be about the same length as the wide or shorter, never longer, or if the tie is too short, make sure the wide blade hangs down to the belt line, even if the thin blade becomes too short. Put the thin blade in the keep if possible; allowing it to flap about again goes back to looking like you don't care. And don't allow either blade to drop below the belt line or be above it. If looking well presented matters to you, master these things. If you enjoy looking bad, then absolutely, do whatever you feel like.
I'm 6'3" tall, it's hard for me to find ties where I live that are long enough to have a knot that looks proportionate, and still retain an acceptable difference between the length of the blades, often, I will use tie pin or bar to keep the short back blade from peeking out and looking unsightly. Not always, but with some of my ties that's my only option. I prefer my front blade within an inch of the top of my trousers, that way it's never too short, but still has a crisp outline unobstructed by my trousers or belt.
I am 34 but like the old school look of short tie. I wear pants slightly high and tie is 1 to 1 1/2 inches above. I use my first 2 fingers. If the back of the tie is too long you can tuck it in the shirt through where you button the shirt.
The knot that looks best is dependent on your size. A big knot on a big man can look great compared to a small knot and vice versa for skinny or shorter guys.
I personally like the tie to be 1cm above the waste (still below belly button) and the back part to be about 2-3cm higher than the front.
I'm a tall guy with a thick neck and athletic build so the classic look does well for me. So the thick not is the way to go and the tie has to come from a big and tall store.
Pick a knot first that works for your size and shape. Then go on the hunt for the correct tie to do it with. Switching knots to adjust for length after you buy the tie can result in fail.
I like his channel, but this is one is so self evident and everything goes type of video it wasn’t worth the time making it. In Britain the standard, and correct method, is to the trouser waist level only and the back blade is tucked in the front blade hook, or keeper, and should never be seen. Today’s modern way’s are not traditional but if you’re young enough perhaps it’s for you, although frowned on at a gentleman’s club in London and my regiment club. I didn’t see the point of this video.
I don't want to disappoint or scare you, but there are countries besides Great Britain and places besides your clubs. But even in your clubs, I suppose men don't come in the same height, as well as their trousers. So it's useful to know that depending on yours and your trouser's height you can use different tie's length and different knots to achieve waist level.
I'm a lazy guy and I tend to not leave myself time to really get dressed in the mornings. So, as a time saving measure I slip my tie off over my head and leave it tied so all I have to do it put it on and tighten the knot. Is this bad for tie? Be honest, I can take it.
Mr. Aaron Marino is the foundation of gentlemen's style and class.
Mr. Antonio Centeno is the skyscrapper of gentlemen's style and class.
And Mr. Sven Raphael Schneider is the epitome of gentlemen's style and class.
From what I've read, a larger knot is most ideal for a spread collar shirt. And given that larger knots take up more of the tie length, I find that I barely have enough material to place it in the tie-stay. PS I find large and elaborate knots. My go-to knot is the double Windsor.
One of the most distracting looks on a man is when his tie peeks out from under his jacket. Some might consider it casual and a good look. Personally, I think it breaks the clean lines and men should start wearing vests again. Bring on back the styles of the 1920's!
I like the tie to be around the belt area. in the middle or at the top edge is fine for me.
whenever I get a new tie, be it short or long, I always try to tie it a few times before the day I'm going to use it. that way I know how to tie it when the day comes, and I don't risk being late for work, because I had problems with the tie 👐
I'm not a Trump supporter or even an American, but you can't in good faith say that he "banned muslims". That is just patently false. The trend with the American left these days seems to be to 1. Over simplify the argument and 2. Taint it with some identity politics angle. They have to reframe every conversation because they have no arguments if they debated things fairly.
Donald Trump has a well-documented lack of taste in everything from fashion to architecture. He is the epitome of what not to do if you want to look good. Thus he is the perfect example for many lessons being taught by the Gazette. It's not the end of the world, it's not a political attack. Stop being a butthurt snowflake, start using more than two brain cells, and move the fuck on.
I have a thought about 0:39 – Although the history of tie places it as pure decoration, could it not be suggested that over time, function was infused into tie design, making it _more_ than just decoration today? I ask this because I believe the modern tie does serve a distinct purpose: A shirt button cover (typically, a tie that covers any more or any less than your shirt buttons is already considered generally taboo) and something to block the elements from getting down your collar. To take it to a logical extreme, if the tie is purely decoration then why are clip-on ties not more acceptable? Thoughts?
Exactly, i do the same. Its the only knot you need. All the people who say its for wide spread collar is outdated. Like you said, and like i do also, you can tighten it and make it smaller so it suits any collar you have. I personally like it big no matter what collar you have. To suit elite are wrong to say its only good for certain shirt collars only. The full Windsor knot is the best knot of all time period.
Shotgunmad xl The combo of long tie and high trousers could be it too. Thing is, since he's taping up his ties like @3:55 that suggests it's barely long enough in the first place. Or maybe he's tying the front of the tie long for some other reason. I'm a little taller than him, so having the back tail of the tie too short is something that happens with regular length ties.
Now why he doesn't wear tie bars is another question. His company sells them. I'm sure he's seen them all over the place in his life. I'm genuinely curious.
Fantastic video I agree that the proper length would be just above the waist band this length give your look total balance if for example one end of the tie extends far beyond the other it simply throws your attire off balance people eyes will be drawn to that fact and no matter how well coordinated your outfit is when your accessories are at war with your suit in this case just doesn't look well symmetry is important when putting a look together when something looks out of place then you have defeated your purpose thanks for the video fine summation.
Gandalf as a Maia (named Olórin) before leaving the Undying Lands.
Originally called Olórin , he was accounted as the wisest of the Maiar (with the possible exception of Melian). He was a Maia of Manwë and Varda. He also served under two other Valar, such as Irmo and Nienna. When the Valar decided to send the order of the Istari (also known as Wizards) to Middle-earth, to counsel and assist all those in Middle-earth who opposed the Dark Lord Sauron, Manwë and Varda decided to include Olórin among the five who were sent.
At first, Olórin was nervous and described himself as too weak and too afraid of Sauron. Manwë understood, and told him that that was one main reason why he should go, to overcome that fear. Thus, he insisted that Olórin should go as the third, but Varda convinced him not to include Olórin as the third, but as the second. Olórin agreed, and prepared for his departure from the Undying Lands with the other four wizards.
Arrival in Middle-earth.
When he arrived to Middle-earth, he received Narya, the ring of fire, from Círdan the Shipwright. Olórin, renamed Gandalf , spent many centuries walking among the elves as a stranger, learning from them and teaching them. He later revealed himself as one of the Istari, and eventually became known as the wisest of and most powerful of that order. He joined the White Council, which was formed to investigate a dark power in Dol Guldur, of which Galadriel wanted him to become the leader, yet Saruman came to lead the Council instead of him. Although Saruman was initially more powerful and more knowledgeable about many matters regarding Sauron and the Rings of Power, and was head of the White Council before the War of the Ring, he later grew jealous and afraid of Gandalf,  which was the reason of his betrayal.
