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.
This style gives a softer look to your shirt. You can get flat-headed or smartly angled designs. Just make sure your pattern and color represents you. Add a tie accessory. Just remember what message are you giving out?
