Shorten Up

When tying your neck tie, be careful not to fall victim to the methods your Dad taught you 20 years ago. Aside from being tied with a tiny little peanut of a knot, the tip of the tie falls below your belt line, doesn't it? If so, you are sadly mistaken with something far out of style.

What you need to do is shorten up your tie length. Start by donating all of your thin ties, the ones with geometric airbrushings on them. Next, aim at having a tie length that finishes at the TOP of your belt buckle when standing straight up. If it's a little shorter, no problem. If it's a little longer, re-tie. The shorter tie will give you a longer silhouette, and also net you a slightly wider knot....and that is a good thing.
