Ties For Men

The preppy styles this season have helped dress up men’s casual wear and encourage companies to embrace tie fashion on many different levels. A large number of fashion-conscious males are adopting their own tie fashion.

In this tough economy you have to play it safe. So how can you adopt a more tailored, dressy attire with classic styles but not looking so boring. For those men who  continue to wear ugly ties with obnoxious sayings,  remember first impressions count. You need to know that your tie states a lot about you.

What does your Ties or Bow Ties say about you?

Why Do Men Wear Ties?

Neckties date back hundreds of years as the direct result of a war. In 1660, in celebration of the Ottoman Empire, a crack regiment from Croatia visited Paris. As a celebration the soldiers were shown as  heroes to Louis XIV. The officers were wearing brightly colored handkerchiefs created of silk around their necks. They say the neck clothes may have descended from the Roman fascalia worn by orators to warm the vocal chords. The king loved the idea, and he created a regiment of Royal Cravattes. The word “cravat,” is derived from the word “Croat.”

Who Created The First Designer Ties?

A Paris fashion designer named Jean Patou, used silk from women’s clothing material to make his high end ties. In the 1920’s patterns called Cubism and Art Deco were widely seen hence most of his designs and inspiration came from here.
