Did you know that the ‘Bow Tie’ has it’s origins from the ‘Croatian Mercenaries’ dated way back to the 17th Century? These mercenaries would use a scarf around their neck under the collar to hold together the opening of their shirts.
This was then adopted by the ‘French Elite’ who renamed it as the ‘Cravat’ derived from the word ‘Croat’.The Cravat then evolved into Bow Ties and Neck Ties. Unlike the Bow Ties you get these days the traditional ones came in a fixed length for a specific neck size.
Print on Print is fun indeed! But, mixing prints with traditional accessories such as these bow ties are even more fun and edgy. So I asked one of the most stylish men I know in the Fashion & PR industry in Bangalore to do what he does best 😉
