The tie itself is no more than a strip of cloth, preferably silk, which is knotted or looped around the neck of the shirt and its purpose is practical and aesthetic, hide the buttons of his shirt. Therefore the tie is inextricably linked to the use of a shirt and its success will depend on conbine with this and have a good knot.

Origin of the tie

Caring neck with a pendant tissue is something documented since ancient Egyptian times, but the current tie stems from a pledge made ​​popular in revolutionary France a unit of Croatian mercenaries that they called "hrvatska" ie Croatia. The garment consisted of a piece of white cloth tied around his neck shaped pink and whose limbs were hanging on his chest. The French public is appropriated calling her "Cravate" and spreading it all over the planet garment.

Types of tie


The ascot is very similar to a tie. This is a band around the neck accented with wide ends that bend more to resemble a thick handkerchief or scarf.Generally, men wear tucked into a shirt or vest and secured with a safety pin or clip. In the late nineteenth century, the ascot tie was used for day and night events; however, their popularity began to fade in the early twentieth century. Today, it is a fashion statement.

Classic tie

The classic tie tied with a lump in my throat and hangs from the front of a shirt with buttons, ending in a tip. There are many lengths, sizes and patterns to classic tie. They are also available in many fabric choices. Many people consider the ties of the most durable artificial silk, as they are machine washable, unlike other fabrics. Polyester neckties and silk require dry cleaning. A smooth polyester tie is elegant with a rough finish, while a satin polyester tie is soft and elegant. Some may even be confused with silk, which is more luxurious and expensive of the classic variety of tie. Silk is also the easiest to ruin, therefore, men normally reserved for formal occasions.

Tie clasps

Brooches ties are preanudadas that attach directly to the shirt. These ties are often informal because its simplistic nature. They are usually made ​​from synthetic materials rather than finest materials. Brooches ties are reserved for children who are unable to bind them. They are not appropriate for business or formal clothes.

Bow tie or cravat

The bow tie is the most formal of all ties. It is a neckband that is below the collar of a shirt button and tied in a bow at the throat. It is one of the most difficult ties knotting, so preanudadas commonly come with a fastener loop behind. Men usually wear them at the wedding in a tuxedo or other formal events.
