Standard length for a man's necklace?

I'm not sure how long to make this necklace. My neighbor requested it for a gift so I can't measure him . Any suggestions?

Re: Standard length for a man's necklace?

Depends on style of necklace. If it's a choker, find out the size shirt he wears. A large shirt has a 17" neck for example. If it's not a choker, I'd go with 20" to 24" depending on his size (small or large build man).

He's a shorter man and thin. I don't want to say choker as in a true choker but I would like it to hang right at the base of his neck. I'm thinking 18" or so.

22" to 24" is standard for men.
