How Long a Tie Should Be: A Guide for Professional Gentlemen
The fast and easy answer to how long your tie should be is this: The tip of it whether it is a diamond-shaped or square-ended tie should land right on top of your waistband or belt buckle when standing in your natural posture. With diamond ties, the corners where it folds should be level with the top of the belt or pant waist. Whether youre wearing a jacket or not, whether anyone sees the end of your tie or not, however wacky the design might be, it should always, 100% of the time be resting right on that belt. Never above nor below unless, of course, its a bow tie.
