It seems Donald Trump, the billionaire mogul and United States President-elect, doesn't use the little loop on the back of his tie which keeps the tail in place.

Mr Trump landed on a windy day in Indiana on Thursday. His golden bouffant billowed in the breeze as did his bright red tie, which flipped up to reveal the skinny part - or 'tail' - of the new Commander-in-Chief's tie was being held in place by sticky tape.

The problem appeared to be that the tail of the Donald's tie was too short to get through the 'keeper loop' - the attachment on the back of the tie to keep it in line with the front, or 'blade' of the tie.

Mr Trump's tie style has come in for criticism before. Business Insider spoke to a personal stylist in August who said his preference for long ties was his biggest mistake "besides the tan and hair".

"It's ludicrous and no one is pointing it out. It's egregiously long," Jessica Cadmus said.

The general rule in the sartorial world is that a man's tie should rest at the top of his belt.

Barack Obama's presidential suits were tailored by Martin Greenfield - a Holocaust survivor whose clients have included Dwight Eisenhower, Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford, Colin Powell and Michael Bloomberg.

Mr Trump does favour suits by Martin Greenfield Clothiers, the New York Times has reported. It remains to be seen if Mr Greenfield will reign in Mr Trump's ties.
