  • THE HISTORY OF THE TIE

    IOriginally worn by soldiers to protect themselves from cold weather, the tie made its appearance in France during the reign of Louis XIII. At that time, Croatian soldiers were enlisted by the King of France. They used to wear a scarf knotted around their neck. It is also supposed that the word cravatta (in French cravat, i.d. tie in English) is a deformation of the word Croatian (croate in French). Around the year 1650, the tie was a common accessory at the neck and at the court of King Louis XIV. People vied for boldness and elegance, adding lace and silk ribbons. The new fashion was spreading all over Europe. Worn by rich people and dandies, the tie has crossed the following centuries and continents taking new forms. In the second half of the 19th century with the revolution of the textile industry introduced by the industrial era, a more functional, longer and narrower tie made its appearance. It was called “sailor tie”. This accessory stepped into the story and it still remains the basis of modern ties. In 1926, Jesse Langsdorf, a New York inventor, came up with the idea of cutting the tie fabric diagonally, tailoring it in three parts so that it was more elastic: the modern tie was born. Today, every day, from Nepalese schoolchildren to Manhattan businessmen, hundreds of millions of men wear ties across the globe.
