The History Of Tie

- Apr 01, 2018 -

When wearing formal suits, a beautiful tie is tied, which is both beautiful and elegant. It also gives people a sense of elegance and dignity. However, the tie symbolizing civilization is evolved from an uncivilized civilization. The earliest tie dates back to the Roman Empire. At that time, the warriors were all wearing scarves on their chests. They were used to wipe off the sword knife wipes, and they dragged the swords to the scarf during the battle to wipe off the blood. Therefore, most modern neckties have a striped pattern and originated here.

Ties have undergone a long and interesting development in the UK.

The United Kingdom was originally a long-delayed country. In the Middle Ages, the British used pigs, cattle, and mutton as staple foods, and instead of using knives, forks or chopsticks when eating, they grabbed a large hand and held it in their mouths. Because of the unshaven tools at that time, adult men had a beard and a mustache. When eating, they stained their beard and wiped it with their sleeves. Women often wash this grease-stained clothing for men. After tediously, they came up with a countermeasure. Hang a cloth under the man's collar and use it to poke at any time. At the same time, a few small stones are nailed on the cuffs. When men use their sleeves again When you wipe your mouth, you will be scratched by stones. For a long time, the British men changed their previous uncivilized behavior, and the cloth hanging under the collar and the small stones affixed to the cuffs naturally became a traditional accessory of British men's tops. Later, it evolved into a popular adornment - a tie on the neck and a button on the cuff, which gradually became a popular style in the world. When did humans start tying a tie, why tie a tie? What was the earliest tie? This is an inexplicable problem. Because there are few historical records of tie records, there are few direct evidence of the tie. There are many legends about the origin of the tie. Everyone has different opinions. To sum it up, there are several arguments.

Tie protection said that the earliest ties originated from Germania. The Germans lived in the deep mountains and old forests. They had blood and were dressed in animal skins to keep warm and cold. In order to keep the skins from falling, they tied them with a straw rope around their necks and tied the skins. In this way, the wind could not be blown in from the neck, and it was warm and windproof. Later, the ropes on their necks were discovered by Westerners and gradually became a tie. Others think that the tie originated from the fishermen at the seaside. The fishermen went to the sea to catch fish. Because the sea was cold and windy, the fishermen tied a band around their necks to keep the wind warm and gradually became a kind of decoration. Protecting the human body to adapt to the prevailing geographic environment and climate conditions is an objective factor for tie production. This kind of straw rope and strap is the most original tie. Ties function that the territorial integrity of the band originated because of the needs of people's lives, with a certain purpose, there are two kinds of legends. One thinks that the necktie originated from the cloth of men's mouth wiped under the British men's collar. Before the industrial revolution, the United Kingdom was a backward country, eating meat with its hands, and then holding large chunks of it to the side of the mouth. Adult men were popular with beards, and a large piece of meat made the beard greasy. Just wipe it with your sleeves. In order to deal with men who do not love clean behavior, women in the man's collar hung a cloth specifically for them to wipe their mouths, over time, the cloth under the collar became a traditional accessory to the British men's tops. After the industrial revolution, Britain developed into a developed capitalist country. People were very particular about clothing, food, housing and transportation. Clothed under the collar became a tie.

Another legend thinks that the tie was used during the Roman Empire era and that the army used it for practical purposes such as protection against cold and dust. The army went to war on the front line. The wife used his husband and friends as friends to hang scarves similar to scarves around their necks and used them to wrap and stop bleeding during the war. Later, in order to distinguish between soldiers and company teams, different designs of scarves were used, and they evolved into today, becoming a necessity for professional clothing.

The tie decoration says that the origin of the tie is an expression of human beauty's emotions. In the middle of the 17th century, a Croatian cavalry triumphantly returned to Paris in the French army. They were dressed in mighty uniforms, and they wore a scarf around their necks. They were of various colors and were very beautiful. They were very spirited and imposing when riding. Some fashionable Parisian deaf children looked and were interested in it, and they followed suit and tied a scarf on their collars. On the second day, a minister took up the court and tied a white scarf on his neck collar. He also made a beautiful bow tie in front of him. King Louis XIV saw a lot of admiration, and publicly announced that he was using a bow tie as a noble symbol and Order the upper class to dress like this.

In summary, the origins of the ties are many, and each of them is based on its own point of view. There is a certain truth in each of them. It is difficult to convince one another. However, it is obvious that the tie originated in Europe. Tie is a product of human society's material and cultural development to a certain extent, is an (opportunity) product, and wearers and observers have influenced its development. Marx said: "The progress of society is the pursuit of beauty by mankind." In real life, human beings want to beautify themselves, make themselves more perfect and more charismatic, and then produce desires that are provided by nature or decorated with artificial objects. The origin of the tie fully illustrates this point.

In 1668, King Louis XIV of France examined the Croatian mercenaries in Paris. The belts attached to the collars of the mercenary officers and soldiers were the earliest ties recorded in historical records. The history of the tie has thus begun; from then on, the history of dress culture is full of flowers that are enduring and glorious.

During the reign of Louis XIV in France, influenced by the form of Roman military wear, the royal Croat coalition gradually became popular with lace-trimmed garments and decorated with simple knots at the neckline. This is French Cravate, which is derived from the word Croat. Gradually, the original bow tie was replaced by a small, high-collar ring with a wrinkle. At the time, the fashionable fashion was to wear a long black ribbon at the bottom of the collar. Later, the tie began to widen. This style has been popular for nearly a century. In 1930, the form of the tie gradually became what it is today. In 1949, according to the regulations of the time, gentlemen who did not wear ties could not enter formal occasions. Slowly becoming a tie became a special symbol of social status and became popular as a result.

Talking about a tie is inseparable from talking about a suit. It can be said that a tie and a suit are twin brothers. The production and development of ties has a close relationship with the changes in men's clothing in Europe in the 17th century. In the 17th century European men wore leotards, earrings, wrinkled collar shirts, and velvet. A tall, rolled-up hairstyle wore a cap on top of it, and when it was saluted, it was lifted with a fringed stick. The shirt is worn inside as underwear, and the collar is very beautifully decorated. The high collar adds a circle of lace, the collar is beautifully embroidered with lotus leaf, the collar is folded into a flower ring, and these collars are exposed. You can see it from the coat. Outside the shirt is a vest, then put on a short jacket, stockings and tight breeches. This lavish, luxury-conscious garment was the most fashionable among the nobility of the time; it was feminine and tender and was a typical Rococo style man's wear. The man who wears this kind of clothing "has only a difference from a woman without a spinning wheel." At that time, people had made various efforts to transform men's clothing. The result was in vain.

Until the French bourgeois revolution in the 18th century declared the end of the life of the court aristocracy, the man gave up his gorgeous costumes and changed into a simple and simple dress. At that time, there was an imperial dress resembling a tuxedo style: the upper waist section, the skirt drooping naturally, the collar with lantern sleeves, the dresses under the chest, the gorgeous shirt collars, the collar collars, and the collar collars. Black tie or tie. The necktie was a scarf-like pattern made of white hemp, cotton cloth, silk, etc. It was wrapped around the neck two times, crossed in front of the collar, and then drooped and bowed. This can be seen in the Francis novel "Tie": "His dark green coat collar was very high. He wore a Nanjing violet vest and a black silk tie wrapped around his neck three times." The poet Byron was very particular about the tie, and when he was satisfied with the style, the tie that had been set aside was piled up. At that time, women also tied their necks. An An Princess liked to combine a black ribbon and a lace tie to create elegant and unique bow ties.

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

People began to wear suits, and ties became fashionable, an indispensable adornment with suits. According to the analysis of some clothing experts, ties are just like bras and skirts that show people's gender characteristics, symbolize two kinds of rational sense of responsibility, and reflect a serious and law-abiding spiritual world. This is precisely what men are pursuing at the time. of. At this time, the tie has a band shape and is usually cut obliquely, with a lining cloth interspersed inside, changing in length and width, and mainly black in color. It is said that the first tie knot was invented in 1868 in England. The tie played by the Duke of Windsor at the end of the 19th century was a symbol of the artists of the end of the 19th century. At that time, the shape of the tie was basically affected.

At the end of the 19th century, ties were introduced into the United States Americans invented twine ties (or cowboy ties), and black twine ties are typical accessories of the 19th-century Western United States and southern gentlemen. Later, there was a thin rope tie fixed with a sliding metal ring called a Paul tie. The ties basically followed the strip style at the end of the 19th century. The 45° angle was obliquely cut. The lining cloth and Zizi silk were clipped inside. There were certain standards for length and width, and the color patterns were varied. After several centuries of evolving development, as the level of civilization has increased, ties have also become more artistic and sophisticated, tending to be more perfect and more beautiful in style and color.
