A necktie which can also be referred to as a tie, is a type of decorative accessory to dressing that is worn under the collar shirt around the neck by men. We have ties that are longer in size that are available. It is common to find ties being worn as part of the formal office dressing in many countries and this is usually done by both men and boys. You may also find a number of women dressed in a tie in some cultures although the men and boys use them more.
In some institutions and organizations, ties are usually recommended as part of the uniform of that institution or organization. Ties are also at times worn by religious figures as a way of appearing formal. Ties have a very long history where they were first used by soldiers either as part of the uniform or as a sign that one belonged to a certain group.
In other nations, ties started out as a simple lace that was worn around the neck. As a result, this fashion of wearing a simple lace around the neck was taken up by both men and women. There were different kinds of ties that were then developed. The first version of a necktie was known as a cravat and it was simply a colored handkerchief that was made out of silk which could be worn by the around the neck by both men and women. Eventually another design of a tie was introduced and this one was a piece of garment that was cut in the shape of a rectangle and was worn around the neck.
We also have among the types of neckties, a skinny tie that is usually narrower than other kinds of ties. We also have the pre-tied necktie or in other words, the clip-on tie which is usually knotted permanently and has a clip or hook that one attaches to the front part of the shirt collar. With this kind of tie, a person who has no time to tie a tie or one who does not know how to tie the tie can easily slip on the tie by attaching it perfectly to his or her shirt collar.
Here are some steps that can help you to perfectly select the appropriate tie. Make sure that the tie you buy does not look odd when worn with that outfit you want to put on. Another thing to consider when buying a tie is the cost of the tie and the material since both the cost and the material can determine the longevity of the tie. Additionally if you are attending a certain function, you will need to know the theme of the function and perhaps if they require people to dress in a particular kind and color of tie.
