Bow ties, a fashion icon
Bow ties are possibly one of the most enduring of men's fashion accessories. While their popularity, like all things fashion related, comes and goes, bow ties have been around for centuries.
A descendant of the scarf-like cravat worn by 17th century Croation mercenaries to fasten their collars together, they have evolved to today's bow tie.
These days most people chose the easy care pre-tied variety, the true bow tie connoisseur still opts for the traditional tie your own style.
