Sruli Recht: Bow Ties

Another post to start the new year on a lovely, fashionable foot: bow ties by Sruli Recht. Here is some interesting history about the bow tie from the Sruli Recht site:

"During the Prussian wars of the 17th century Croatian mercenaries held together the openings of their shirts around their necks with a scarf. Then adopted by the French upper class the “Cravat” was derived from the French for "Croat" to become highly popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was this Croatian scarf of combat and bloodshed that led to the Bow Tie. Here we salute its dark origins."
