Historical notes on the tie
The first to wear it was the Roman legionaries in the regions of northern Europe; Then it was a strip of tissue (focal) tight around the neck from a node. The tie itself was born only at the beginning of 1600: a large strip of white or red linen: kravatska (from Slavic croatian) which was part of the Croatian militias hired by Louis XIV. He had, above all, a romantic meaning; It was the gift of love made by women to soldiers who went to war. The tie more like our modern one dates back to the eighteenth century: a narrow strip of silk passed under the collar of the shirt and usually knotted with a bow. The “how-to” tapping the bow was a very debated matter, so that at that time numerous books were published concerning “the art of knitting the tie”; One of these was written by Honoré de Balzac.
