Necktie Lengths and Widths

Our neckties range from 57" to 58" long, and 3-5/8" to 4" wide. If you're not sure what tie length you normally wear, simply lay out one of your current ties and measure it end to end. Unless it is more than a couple of inches longer or shorter than 57" - 58", our standard necktie should fit you comfortably. If you are more than 6 foot 2 inches tall and/or have a large neck size, then you should be wearing extra long ties.
