Western String Tie
Ties started out as cravats, bands of cloth wrapped around the neck and tied in any number of decorative ways, depending on the ups and downs of fashion. The string tie probably evolved from the black silk bag wig ribbon that men tied over their stocks in the early 18th century. When it came to neck wear in the mid-19th century, more emphasis was placed on tying the bow than on the fold pattern created by wrapping the cloth around your neck. Western cowboys and gunslingers were probably in such a hurry to get dressed that they did not have much time to devote to tying their ties, so they simply knotted them around their necks and dispensed with the complicated bow. Made of handsome black damask, our Western necktie will draw a lot of attention to your face and collar.
