A Conversation for Neckties
The Invention of Neckties
ITIWBS Started conversation Mar 2, 2015
When neckties were first introduced, the collar of the shirt was still a separate garment, held in place by the necktie, which was still a functional garment.
Since the introduction of shirts with the collar sewn in, neckties have been obsolete, retained in fashion for conformity's sake, on a foundation of a now forgotten functionalism.
