About Necktie Custom Details
Necktie custom easy, fast and quality. Designers are here to help.
All of our neckwear are custom made, neckties can choose in the length, width, shape and construction that you request, bow ties can select the adult bow tie or kids bow tie, any product can add pocket square.
1) Please let us know if you have a preference for the direction that your stripes have. If you do not care about the direction of the product, you can choose any style.
The American style* has the stripes starting from the high left and going to the low right (looking at the wearer) and the British style* is typically (but not always) the opposite. We will use the American style unless you request the British style.
Typically in the USA the American style is used. Some gentlemen prefer the British style as they like the aesthetics of the British look, although there exists the possibility that you will create ill will if you do not have "membership" rights to certain ties.
Many American gentlemen have philosophically decided that in the USA anything goes but while in Great Britain they will be much more careful with what they wear.
Please note that the photographs of our striped silks are only examples as we do not have any ready-made ties for sale, and we will make the stripes go in the direction that you request if we have enough silk on hand. You don't charge for the British direction.
* We use the terms "American" and "British" styles in a general way.
2) Width that you prefer.
3.5 inches is a good standard width. Depending on your height and body type you my need a longer or shorter tie.
2.75 inches is a slim width. To wear a skinny tie in a more formal work environment.
2 inches is a slim tie. Going slim provides a more retro look, while going wider creates a more traditional look.
Please note that it is normal for a tie to have slight variations in its measurements after its long trip to reach you. After you wear your tie a few times it will adjust its shape and should be just right.
With a hand made tie there will be variations in width when you measure it from day to day and also there will be variations of roughly 1/4 to 1/2 inch in length and 1/8 to 1/4 inch in width when we measure compared to when you measure.
Also please note we have a 1/4 inch in length and 1/8 inch in width variance in your finished tie.
3) To determine the correct tie length.
First, please measure untied your best fitting tie from tip to tip.
Next, tie your tie and note how many inches from your belt the big and small ends are.
Our goal is to have the large end when you are wearing your tie be in the area of your belt (or where you prefer it if you are wearing braces), and for the small end to be 2 inches above the large end. Occasionally some gentlemen prefer for the big and small ends to be of equal length we do not suggest this but will be happy to make any length that you wish.
So for example if your tie is 58 inches tip to tip and when wearing your tie the big end is roughly on your belt buckle and the small end is 2 inches higher 58 inches is a good length.
If the small end is 6 inches above the big end add 4 inches (58+4=62) to get a good length of 62 inches. Or add other 4 inches which you want.
As an example if you have a length that you like for a four-in-hand knot, please email us(email@example.com). we generally will add 2 inches to the four-in-hand length for a half-Windsor or 3 inches for a full Windsor knot.
We also provide from 0 to 2 years old, 2 years old to 6 years old, 6 years old to 10 year old kid's tie.
8 inches length provide for 0-2.
11 inches length provide for 2-6.
