Matching Ties to Collars

tie and shirt collar matching guide

Remember last week’s post that featured a simple cheat sheet on the most common dress shirt collars, cuffs, as well as lapels found in menswear today? Well, since not all collar styles are suited for all types of neckwear, I thought another simple infographic would be in order to showcase what type of tie you can wear with which type of collar. As always, your comments below are appreciated.

      HI Walter, if you are 5’3″ then you should be shopping for ties that are 57″ or shorter in length (complete untied length of the tie). You can also choose certain knots that require more of the tie’s length. A double windsor knot, Kelvin, or the Prince Albert knot are all perfect choices here.
