Choosing the Perfect Necktie for Your Body

Choosing the Perfect Necktie for Your Body

Men’s ties come in a large variety of colors, designs, fabrics and even sizes. From standard length neckties to extra long clip on ties, there is a necktie that is perfectly suited for your specific body. However, with so many choices, it can be often hard browsing the selection of ties at and finding the right one. While personal preference is one of the most important factors in choosing the best necktie, there are other factors that you should consider when choosing the perfect necktie for you.


The first step in choosing the perfect tie is finding a tie that is the right size for you. The length and width of a tie should relate to your size and build. If you fit within the big and tall category, you’re going to want to browse extra long clip on ties or traditional ties. Extra long clip on ties are 21 inches long as opposed to the regular 19 inch standard length tie.  Remember a necktie should end right above your belt! Extra long clip on ties are the perfect choice for men who are large in both height and shoulder span.  Width is another important factor. Men who are on the bigger side should opt for a traditional width tie, while short and thinner men can get away with skinny ties. At Necktie Emporium, we have the best selection of extra long clip on ties as well as shorter tie lengths for every man. 


Not every color is compatible for every man. It’s best to coordinate your necktie color with the season, and consider which colors work best for you. Pastels are great in the spring and summer, and often look best on a darker skinned man. Darker and rich earth tones are perfect for fall and winter and look great on paler skin, but can look great on any men when paired with the right shirt or suit. Remember that black ties are often only appropriate for formal gatherings, but look great on everyone. It’s important to take events and occasions into consideration with choosing the proper color of necktie.


There are many patterns of neckties, and choosing one can seem like a daunting task. When choosing patterns its always best to take an audit of your wardrobe. If your wardrobe is dominated by patterned shirts, it’s best to stick to solid colored ties. However, mixing patterns is often a great way to stand out, when done right.
