“Man”day Mondays – ‘Vest’ed Interest in Ties

I think there is no better way than finding men’s style for the groom by watching Big Screen Award shows.

Last night’s Golden Globes proves it, with this year’s style favourites, there were two top contenders for men’s wear:

Tuxedo’s with ties and tuxedos with bow ties with two variations, some with vests, some sans the third piece. Variations can be seen below, to style your man to his personality.  Images from The Hollywood Reporter’s red carpet pics.

The necktie traces back to 1618–1648 when Croatian mercenaries in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian word for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name “cravat”

Glee’s Chris-Colfer also prefers the skinny tie.

Michel Hazanavicius goes a little more traditional with a regular tie AND vest.

 

The bow tie originated during the Prussian wars of the 17th century: the Croat mercenaries used scarves around the neck to hold together the opening of 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.
