Necktie Sizing

What is a regular size of a necktie?

Necktie Length

Designer ties are available in two lengths:

Regular & Extra Long

Regular

The regular necktie is 56" - 59", Most neckties being 58" long = 1.47m. Many designer ties are made in similar factories in Italy and will have that similar length.

Extra Long

The extra long tie is generally 5" (13cm) longer than the regular necktie. The minimum length of an extra long tie is 61", and some brands make the extra long tie up to 64" long.

The extra long tie is generally very useful for men of 6.3" / 1.89cm and taller (as the regular tie would be too short), also the extra long tie would be a pretty good fit for men of 6.1' and up.

In 2017 the most common size designer necktie (as seen in large retailers in the USA) is approx 3".

The two most common sizes are 7.5cm = 2.95" and 8.0cm = 3.15".
