    Bow Tie

    A bow tie is a strip of fabric, that is tied around the collar of a shirt originally to close the top of the shirt and joins ends in the front in a bow. Bow ties were first worn by Croatian mercenaries in the 17th century. They were soon adapted by the French high society and made popular especially in the 18th and 19th century. Nowadays bow ties have been crowded out by regular ties and are rarely worn if not at a black-tie event or by fashionistas. Bow ties can be adjustable or one-length and can be pre-tied for those who do not know how to tie a regular bow tie. They can be made of cotton, silk, blends and in rare cases wool. Some people have made bow ties their trademark such as Winston Churchill, James Bond or Korean singer Psy.
