    I am sure they com in mutiple lengths. If the one you get it too long for your taste you can cut & sew it shorter.

    They go by String Tie or Floppy Bow Tie. I saw an older gentleman wear one about 2 months ago. He had on bib over-alls and a white shirt. In spite of that he looked dressed for work, he looked good with that string tie. Since I work in a city building, he must've tied it on real quick to come inside and conduct city business.

    String tie is what I would call it. Very Victorian. You see them a lot in old cowboy movies.

    Both of these could be made shorter with little work. The one in the first link is 100% polyester so it is just a matter of cutting it to the desired length & lightly singeing.

    What you might also be able to do is get a length of ribbon about 7/8 to 1 inch wide & use that to make your own bow tie.
