“A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life.” – Oscar Wilde
No gentleman’s formal outfit can be truly complete without a well-chosen necktie. While ties themselves have gone through many incarnations over the centuries in width, pattern, fabric, and style of knot, their presence has long been demanded in polite society of many cultures as a basic display of respect.
The first recorded fashion for neckwear was in 17th century France, where the nobility imitated neckerchiefs sported by Croatian mercenaries who came to Paris to fight for the King. Since then, matching neckties have gone on to identify members of clubs, teams and organizations of all kinds, featuring in the uniforms of sports teams, educational establishments, corporate companies, and military and civil institutions.
