Happy National Bow Tie Day!

August 28th encourages everyone to wear any type of tie!

A bow tie is a type of traditional necktie and it’s originated among Croatian mercenaries, who used a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of their shirts. This was soon adopted by the upper classes in France, where the cravat gave rise to the bow tie.

It’s believed that tie evolved from another type of male neckwear called the cravat (Croatia).
