If you’re a professional, you put on a tie at least four days a week. But even the most seasoned tie veterans experience the occasional tie fail. Here are the three most common:
Some days you just cannot get it right. Your tie should always touch the top of your belt. Remember, the back part of the tie should be shorter when you start putting it on.
The opposite of the shorty, your tie should never hang below your belt. If this keeps happening, it probably means you’re making the back piece of your tie too short, so reposition and try again.
If your tie knot keeps ending up looking like a pretzel, maybe today’s not your day. Try reverting to the simplest knot you know, and if that doesn’t work … crawl back into bed and try again tomorrow.
