Did you know the bow tie originated among the Croatian mercenaries during the Thirty Year war of the 17th century: where the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold the opening of their shirts together.

These were then rapidly adopted by the French upper class, who were known as leaders in fashion at the time, and became quite the fashionable neck attire.  We now see them in every colour of the rainbow and they can brighten any outfit. We love bowties!
