The tie has been hanging around for many centuries. It all began when Croat soldiers from the Military in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian words for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name “Cravat”. The new article of clothing started a fashion craze in Europe where both men and women wore pieces of fabric around their necks.
Many a story has passed down the pipe of how ties have evolved to where the are today. But one thing is for sure, it’s still a great stocking stuffer. As are Gents undergarments, cufflinks, jacket pins, copper love plates, leather toiletry bags, tie bars and socks.
