- Story Text: A Thai necktie manufacturer unveiled on Tuesday (May 14) what is claimed to be the world's longest necktie.
At 99 metres long,only a Gulliver or Goliath would be tall enough to wear the sartorial masterpiece.
The tie far exceeds the current record of 66 metres held by an Indian garment maker and plans are underway to find it a place in the Guiness Book of World Records.
The blue tie bears the crest of celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the King of Thailand's accession to the throne.
It was laid out on a running track at Bangkok's National Sports stadium for the measuring. After careful checking,officials marked out its length,chalking up the new record.
Later in May the tie will be hung from an office building in central Bangkok.
