How to Size Adjust your JT NEcktie
The JT Necktie is designed to look exactly like a traditional necktie. Wear it the same way you would wear a regular tie. Our ties are made with a single yarn color with subtle herringbone detail. The design is timeless and easy to style.
First Step – How to adjust the length
When you first get your JT Necktie (or make one from a DIY Kit or Pattern) you will want to make sure the tie is the correct length. Your tie should hit at the middle of your waistband or belt buckle. This is regardless of height, posture, or whether you use any kind of assistive device like a wheelchair or braces.
Since the JT Necktie has a faux knot, you don’t have to tie and adjust it like a regular tie. The length of the tie can be pulled through the knot. To make the tie longer, draw more of the front length of tie through the knot. To make the tie shorter, draw more of the back length through the knot. This adjustment can be done once (use caregiver assistance if needed) and then you tie will stay the same length without additional adjustment. Our neckties can be adjusted from approximately 15 inches to 22 inches from top of the knot to the bottom of the tie.
Second Step – Adjust Neck Sizing
The JT Necktie can be slipped on over your head by use of an elastic band that sits discretely under a shirt collar. The elastic band can be adjusted to suit your neck size. Finished neckties are shipped ready to fit a neck size of approximately 15 inches. The elastic band can be lengthened to accommodate larger neck sizes. There are two loops in the back of the elastic band. Snip and remove the stitches on 1 or 2 loops based on your neck size. Once neck size is adjusted appropriately, slide it on over your head and tuck the elastic band under your shirt collar.
Note: When adjusting your tie, if you are uncertain about proper neck sizing, release the stitches on the inner-most elastic loop first. Try the tie on and if necessary release the last loop. Use caregiver assistance if necessary.
Now your JT Necktie is ready wear!
How to style the JT Necktie
Our ties are a single color with a subtle herringbone pattern to give them the most versatility. We offer a variety of colors to suit different tastes and styles.
Pair our ties with either solid or patterned shirts.
When wearing a solid shirt, you can chose a monochromatic look by pairing a shirt in a similar color as the tie. The herringbone pattern will really pop with this look!
If you like a contrast, try styling a lighter color tie with a darker shirt or visa versa. Not sure how to pair colors? Try a black shirt with one of the lighter ties. Or a white shirt with a darker colored tie.
Lots of patterned shirts can be worn with our ties. Simply pair them the same way you would a traditional tie. Get creative and try some experimental combinations with neutral suit or jeans!
