Which Country Claims To Have Invented The Tie?

Al Gore invented the Internet. Croatia invented the neck tie. No, really, they did. Here’s a fun little nugget of fashion history, brought to our attention by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

“In a nutshell, the necktie evolved from a type of scarf worn by Croatian soldiers in the early 17th century. According to folk tradition, before a soldier set off for war, his girlfriend or wife would bestow upon him a narrow scarf to wear around his neck to remind him of her love … By 1650, French king Louis XIV caught sight of these jaunty neckerchiefs, fell for them and started wearing one himself.”

Works for the guys or the girls, apparently. Comes in black or gray, plain or striped. Works for interviews on chilly days, perhaps? No idea how much it costs. I think I like it. In a weird, American Apparel sort of way. Not that I would wear it. Would you? [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Not to “go there” with gender stereotyping, but whoever said men are pigs knew what they were talking about.

For the man who can’t keep it on his plate, there’s this handy dishtowel tie from Atypyk. A washable blend of linen and cotton, the tie can catch messy eaters’ drippings.
