"I'm rather short, and one thing I've discovered is that the "rise" of the pants is also very important. What invariably happens with me, when wearing a regular rise, is that the pants fall to my natural waistline, which…"
"There is a place I have heard of called Napoleon's Tailor. They understand short guys and and will help guys get things that fit them. If you call them, they can probably talk to you and let you know what they can do. I've never used them…"

For a more standard look, however, I find you can buy good ties at pretty much any menswear store. Macy's sometimes has good builds.

"Ya I have the same problem. My boss does not ware a tie. I deal with it by dressing well in all other aspects including having fun with cuff links. You can dress well without a tie, you just switch the details. Also get…"
"I love wearing ties, I truly get treated different when not wearing them. That said I think the pocket square in colorful patterns are a great way to compliment the wardrobe. You can have fun with monograms on your pocket and cufflinks as…"
"Herb - I get that you believe that. My question is what does THIS scripture offer to this discussion.
