Who Needs Extra Long Ties?
As the name suggests, longer XL ties are made for taller men. Besides height, the neck size, as well as the type of tie-knot used, are determining factors for the length of tie needed. Most regular sized ties measure 57-59 inches in length. Should you have difficulty tying such a tie to the right length (so that the tip ends near the center of your belt buckle) then you will be better off with one of our extra long ties from above. Most of our XL sized ties are also available as a regular sized necktie.

Then, you could go to a tailor and have a few inches added to the narrow end of the tie. It is the part of the tie that lies hidden once tied.
