A Little History: The tie concept has been with us for more than 2000 years. In China, warriors would wear a special silk cord around their necks that enhanced their social status. Croatian mercenaries wore kerchiefs in bright colors also around their necks; later on because of the 30 Year War and the recruiting of Croatian soldiers, the tie was brought to France and received a name: the Cravat. The tie grew so popular that even King Louis XIV appointed an official tie maker and tier, and by the 17th century the trend had reached all Europe. In the 20th century, a tailor named Jesse Langsdorf designed what we know as the modern tie, with a 45 degree angle cut that has excellent drape and elasticity.
Now, how to use a tie? In our era now both men and women wear ties to add flair, sophistication and status to their attires. Of course woman's ties are thinner than men ties, to add that extra touch of delicacy. We can team them up with casual, formal or work attire, there is no restrictions! There are many different types of knots for different types of tie length, but they all add a singular feel to an outfit.So, do you rock ties??
