First we have two guys making ties from wood and now Two Guy Bow Ties are making Bowties from wood. So of course I had to find out more about wood bowties. Who would have thought there were so many out there? Google wood bowties and bowtie fans will be astounded.
According to Wikipedia Bowties- originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Prussian wars of the 17th century: the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of their shirts. This was soon adopted (under the name cravat, derived from the French for “Croat“) by the upper classes in France, then a leader in fashion, and flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries.
It is uncertain whether the cravat then evolved into the bow tie and necktie, or whether the cravat gave rise to the bow tie, which in turn led to the necktie
