Because there are so many rules, techniques and styles in the tie game, it has allowed for some men to adhere to their own routines. Tying a tie is an art that takes a lifetime of practice (until you don’t care anymore) and we are here to take a look at how a tie can ruin good ensembles.
I knew a guy, a little over 6 feet tall and athletic He was very much a sweat suit, jeans and a t-shirt kind of guy but when he dressed up he had a rule; When he tied his tie, it was slightly shorter than the suggested length. Out of curiosity, I asked him WHY he’d tied it short of expectation and he explained it simply:
Tying my tie to hit above my pants make my tie too long when I sit down. Before you know it, I’m sitting on my tie. It makes for a wrinkled tie. – R.R.
Tie expression has taken on an all new high. Men are using their ties to add flair, challenge rules and separate themselves from the normal. Ultimately, can we stomach a tie being shorter than usual as opposed to longer?
