Neckpiece Styles

Neckpiece/Tie Styles

Ties have a history relating back to the European wars of the 17th century. It is uncertain whether theBow Tie evolved into the Cravat, or whether the cravat gave rise to the Bow Tie, which in turn led to theStandard Long Tie variations. In the 21st century the appropriate style of neckpiece/tie is often determined by the standard of dress required for a particular function.

Bow Tie – The most traditional Bow Ties are usually of a fixed length and are made for a specific neck size. However at SUITS we have a range of Bow Ties that are “pre-tied” and adjustable “One-size-fits-all”.  If you choose to “tie your own” Bow Tie – they are also available at SUITS.  Bow Ties are often worn with the formal pleated front, wing-collar shirts for black tie formal functions.

Fat Boy Tie – In recent years the Fat Boy Tie has proven to be a very popular style for formal weddings and black tie events. It can be worn with a wing collared shirt for formal occassions or regular collar shirts for a more casual look. Fat Boy Ties can often be worn by groomsmen in a wedding party to colour co-ordinate with  the bridesmaids dresses.

Cravat – The Cravat is a very traditional and a most formal neckpiece style. It is often worn by a groom in a wedding party. However if the function is of a very formal nature, groomsmen may also look appropriate in a cravat.  SUITS has a large colour range of satin cravats for hire.

Standard Long Tie – In recent decades the Standard Long Tie tends to be the preferred formal neckpiece accessory. Standard Long Neckties are traditionally worn with the top shirt button fastened, and the tie knot resting comfortably between the collar points. However, it has become common in recent times for neckties to be worn as a casual item, tied loosely around the neck, nearly always with one or several buttons unfastened.

Skinny Long Tie – Skinny ties vary slightly in width from 3cm-5cm and are also known as thin or narrow neckties. Men’s skinny ties were extremely popular in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. However, as fashion cycles continue they have now become very popular for younger trendy males in recent years. We have a range of skinny ties available for hire or purchase.

Choker – The Choker is an unique look for formal attire. Usually made of a black satin fabric with an adjustable neck band which is easy to resize. For a distinctive look it can be worn with various fabric colours and button size variations.

Crossover – The Crossover is a variation of the Choker and is a very formal neckpiece. It can be worn with a button colour variations to match your vest.

Award Shirt Button – Award shirts can be worn with a variety of different coloured buttons and patterns usually co-ordinating with a vest or partner’s attire.
