Large and Tall Has It All Tied Up

extra long ties

New to the largeandtall.co.uk website is a range of men’s extra long neck ties. Measuring 172 cm (68") these ties are suitable for both taller and bigger men. The range include plains and patterns as well as the all important basic black funeral tie. This new range sits alongside the existing extra long pre-tied and self-tied bow ties that we have sold for a number of years as well as our bestselling bow and cummerbund sets.
