How to Lengthen a Gentleman's Tie

Introduction: How to Lengthen a Gentleman's Tie

About: Hoping to inspire you to create something EXTRAordinary from just ordinary things (fabric, scissors, thread & needle - to name a few) This is where I post the Simple Wedding Projects for the Do-It-Yo...

This is a simple tutorial on how to lengthen a Gentleman's tie. 

Gentlemen, I hope this will help you out.  I had a lot of comments regarding the tie being too short when tying the Eldredge Knot.  Because of this, I decided to create a tutorial on how to lengthen the tie by adding fabric to the center.

There are a few things you have to consider when lengthening your tie:

1) Neck or collar measurment

2) Height (this is really good for those of you who are Pro Basketball Players:)

3) and the style of knot you are tying

Since the above factors may differ for each person, when attaching the center fabric, make sure it is hidden under your shirt collar.  So adjust accordingly.

Tip:  you can use an old tie for the center fabric or purchase one from a secondhand shop.  Another option is to purchase fabric and interfacing and cut to match the width.  Since it is hidden under the shirt collar, I was not concerned with the design.

Well, thanks for watching!
