The origin of a tie

When wearing formal suit, tie a beautiful tie again. It is elegant and dignified, but it symbolizes civilization, but it never evolved from civilization. The earliest ties can be traced back to the ancient Rome empire. Then the soldiers wore chest scarf, it is used to wipe the knife wiping cloth used in combat, knife to a scarf, can wipe off the blood. Therefore, modern necktie mostly stripe pattern, the origin lies in this.

Ties have experienced a long and interesting process in britain,

Britain was a long backward country. In the middle ages, the British people used pigs, cows and mutton as their staple food, and they didn't use knives and forks or chopsticks when they were eating. Instead, they picked up a large chunk of their hands and held them on their lips. Since there were no shaving tools, the adult men had a shaggy beard, and when eating, they smeared their beards and wiped them with their sleeves. Women often want to wash the clothes stained with grease man. After they came in not to mind taking the trouble, a countermeasure, in a man's collar hanging a piece of cloth, can be used to wipe the mouth, and nail pieces small stones on the cuff, when men again according to the old habits with sleeve cazui, stones will be scratched. British men for many, many years to come, get rid of the uncivilized behavior, while hanging on the collar and cuffs of cloth hanging on the small stones naturally become the British coat of traditional appendages. Later, it became a popular accessory - ties worn around the neck and buttons attached to cuffs, and gradually became the world's most popular fashion. When did people start wearing ties? Why should they wear ties? What's the earliest tie? It's a hard question. Because there are very few records of ties, there are very few direct evidences of ties, but there are many legends about the origins of neckties. To sum up, there are the following statements.

Tie said that a tie protection originated in the Germanic Germanic people living in the deep mountains and forests in thenascent, dressed in animal skins weatherizing, in order not to let the skin down, they used the rope tied around his neck, tied to the skins. As a result, the wind is not blowing in from the neck, both warm to wind, then they neck rope discovered by Westerners, and gradually improve the tie. Others believe that the necktie originated from fishermen on the beach, fishermen go fishing in the sea, because the sea wind and cold, fishermen tied a band around the neck, wind warm, gradually become a decoration. Protect the body in order to adapt to the geographical environment and climatic conditions, is an objective factor produced by the rope, tie, belt is the most primitive tie. The tie function says that territorial integrity takes place because of the needs of people's lives and has some uses. There are two kinds of legends. A cloth designed for men to wear their hair under the collar of an English man. Before the industrial revolution, Britain is a backward country, eating meat by hand, and then chunks holding to his mouth to bite, and adult male pop beard, a chunk of meat eating the beard get greasy, men used to wipe the sleeves. In order to deal with this man does not love clean, women in a man's collar hung a piece of cloth for their cazui, in the course of time, this piece of cloth under the collar became the British coat of traditional appendages. After the industrial revolution, the British developed into a developed capitalist country, people are very particular about the basic necessities of life, hanging under the collar of cloth into a tie.

Another legend says that the tie was an imperial age in Rome, and that the army used it for practical purposes such as cold protection and dust prevention. The army to fight for her husband, wife, friends for friends to give similar scarves scarf hanging on their necks, bandage to stop bleeding in the war. Later, in order to distinguish soldiers and companies, they adopted different styles of scarves, and then evolved and developed into today's necessities of professional clothing.

Tie adornment says, tie origin is the expression of human beautiful feeling. In the middle of the seventeenth Century, a French cavalry returned to Paris in triumph in Croatia. They wore powerful uniforms, neck collar tied with a scarf, a variety of colors, very beautiful, riding on the horse looked very spiritual, awe inspiring.

The second day, a minister in the court, collar wearing a white scarf, hit a beautiful tie in front of Louis Xiv King praised, announced to tie for the noble symbol, and ordered the upper class are so dress up.

In summary, the origin of the tie many versions, each from their own perspective, have some truth, it is difficult to convince each other each other; but one thing is obviously that tie originated in europe. Necktie is a product of the material and cultural development of human society to a certain extent. It is a kind of opportunity product, and the wearer and observer influence its development. Marx said, "the progress of society is the pursuit of beauty by man."." In real life, human beings in order to beautify themselves, make themselves more perfect, more attractive, produced by nature or artificial items to decorate their own desires, the origin of the tie fully illustrates this point.

In 1668, King Louis Xiv of France in Paris to review the Croatia mercenaries mercenaries soldiers tied on the collar strap; is the historical records of the earliest tie. The history of the tie has started; from then on, the history of costume culture is full of a wonderful flower.

France during the reign of Louis Xiv, influenced by the Rome uniform wearing form, Croat forces gradually popular royal lace trim clothing, and a simple knot as at neckline.

In 1930, the style of tie gradually became what it is today. In 1949, gentlemen who did not wear ties could not enter formal occasions according to the regulations at that time. Gradually, neckties became a special symbol of social status and became popular.

The tie is inseparable from the suit. It can be said that the tie and suit are twin brothers. The emergence and development of neckties are closely related to the changes of men's clothing in Europe in the seventeenth Century. In seventeenth Century the European men's wear tights, wearing earrings, wearing a flower ruffled shirt, velvet, rolled up hair above wearing a cap, with a tassel salute when the pin lift it. The shirt as underwear inside, collar rather ornate, high collar with a lace collar, embroidered with beautiful lotus leaf, flower collar discount Diego ring, the collar is exposed outside, you can see from the coat. That shirt is a vest, and then put on the jacket, wearing stockings and tight breeches. The pursuit of luxury and luxury clothing was the most fashionable among the aristocracy at that time; it had a feminine style of beauty and tenderness, and was a classic of the Rococo style. This clothing man "difference and the woman is just not a spinning wheel," when people have made efforts to transform the men's clothing, in vain.

It was not until the French bourgeois revolution declared the end of the palace aristocracy in eighteenth Century that the men gave up their finery and changed into simple and simple attire. That is the popular imperial clothing similar to tuxedo style: High Waisted skirt coat, drooping naturally, with large collar lantern sleeve, below the chest slightly gorgeous costumes, no collar, the collar fold collar, fold before the Department of black silk tie or cravat.

In the novel "tie" in France: "his dark green collar is very high, he was wearing a black vest of Nanjing cloth, silk tie wide in his neck around three laps." The poet Byron is said to be very careful about his tie. When he reaches a satisfactory pattern, the cast of his tie has piled up. At that time women wore ties, and Princess Ann liked the combination of black ribbons and lace ties. She wore elegant and chic bow ties.

Around 1850, suits were adopted as sportswear. Around 1870,

At this time, the necktie is in the shape of a strip, usually oblique cut and lined with lining cloth. It varies in length and width, and the color is black. It is said that the first tie knot was invented in England in 1868. The tie worn by the Duke of Windsor at the end of the nineteenth Century was a symbol of the artist at the end of the nineteenth Century, when the tie shape was largely affected.

In the late nineteenth Century, neckties were introduced into the United states. Americans invented string ties (or cowboy ties), and black string ties were typical accessories for American gentlemen in the West and South in the nineteenth Century. Later, there was a string tie with a sliding metal ring called a Paul tie. The necktie basically follows the strip style at the end of nineteenth Century. It is inclined to cut at 45 degrees angle.
