From Ascots to Zipper Ties: the Brief History of Neckwear

Everyone knows what a necktie is, how to wear them, and what they look like. However, many people may not realize the large selection of different styles of neckties that exist. The traditional necktie is widely known throughout the world, but there are many other variations of neckties that exist. This guide is to help navigate you through the wonderful world of neckties. From zipper ties to ascots, there are a lot of variations that stem from the traditional necktie we have all grown familiar with throughout history.

The Necktie is deeply rooted in Military history. History shows that a variation of today’s necktie may have been worn as early as 210 BC by the ancient Chinese soldiers under the leadership of their first emperor. This style of necktie closely resembles an ascot, which is rooted in royal history. The necktie we know today is credited to Jesse Langsdorf, a New York tie maker who created the style of necktie we wear today in the 1920s. Since the early days of neckties, the designs have changed greatly, but one thing has never changed; the way we wear neckties.

Once, the only way to wear a necktie was to learn how to manually tie a proper knot. However, throughout the course of necktie history, the addition of clips made clip on ties a popular choice for men who had no knowledge of tying a knot. Even better, zipper ties were created, which like a clip on tie, offer an ease of wearing for men who have no knowledge to tie their own knots. Zipper ties however, differ from clip on ties, as zipper ties actually go under the collar like a traditional tie. Zipper ties and clip on ties have essentially revolutionized the way we wear neckties.

Of course other variations exist when it comes to neckties. Tie styles like bowties, bolo ties, and cravats are all part of the necktie family! You might not find ascots and cravats at, but we assure you that you’ll find the largest selection of clip on ties, zipper ties, bow ties, traditional ties and ties for kids. When it comes to finding the best selection of neckties, make your first choice!
