When wearing a formal suit, a beautiful tie is attached, which is both beautiful and elegant, and gives a sense of elegance and solemnity. However, the tie that symbolizes civilization has evolved from no civilization.
The earliest tie dates back to the time of the Roman Empire. At that time, the soldiers were wearing a scarf on their chests. It was a knife cloth used to wipe the sword. When fighting, the knife was dragged onto the scarf to wipe off the blood. Therefore, modern ties mostly use striped patterns, which originated here.
The tie has undergone a long and interesting development in the UK. The UK was originally a long-lost country. In the Middle Ages, the British used pig, beef and mutton as their main food, and they did not use cutlery or chopsticks when eating. Grab a large piece of your hand and hold it on your lips. Because of the unshaven tools at that time, adult men were carrying a messy beard. When eating, the beard was stained with a sleeve and wiped. Women often wash this greased clothing for men. After they bothered, they came up with a countermeasure. Hanging a piece of cloth under the collar of a man can be used to pout at any time, while nailing a few small stones on the cuffs. Whenever men use their sleeves again, they use their sleeves. When you wipe your mouth, you will be scratched by stones. Over time, the British men have changed their uncivilized behavior, and the cloth hanging under the collar and the small stones adorned in the cuffs have naturally become the traditional attachments of the British men's tops. Later, it evolved into a popular ornament—a tie tied around the neck and a button on the cuff, and gradually became a popular style in the world. When did humans begin to tie? Why do you want to tie a tie? What is the earliest tie? This is a difficult question to prove. Because there are few historical records of the tie, there is very little direct evidence of the tie, and there are many legends about the origin of the tie, and each person has different opinions. To sum up, there are the following statements.
Tie protection said that the tie originated in Germanic origins. The Germans lived in the deep forests of the mountains. They ate blood and shed their skins to keep warm. In order not to let the hides fall, they tied the ropes around their necks and tied them. skin. In this way, the wind can't be blown in from the neck, keeping warm and windproof. Later, the straw rope on their neck was discovered by Westerners and gradually perfected into a tie. Another person thinks that the tie originated from the fishermen on the beach. The fishermen went to the sea to fish. Because the wind was cold and cold, the fishermen tied a belt around their necks, keeping them warm and wind, and gradually became a decoration. Protecting the human body to adapt to the geographical environment and climatic conditions at that time is an objective factor in the tie. This straw rope and belt are the most primitive tie. The tie function says that the origin of the territorial integrity is due to the needs of people's lives and has some use. There are two legends here. A cloth that is believed to have originated under the collar of a British man for men to wipe their mouths. Before the industrial revolution, the United Kingdom was also a backward country, eating meat and grabbing it, and then holding it to the mouth in large chunks. The adult man was popular with a beard, and the big piece of meat made the beard greasy, men. Just use the sleeves to wipe. In order to deal with men who do not love clean behavior, women hang a piece of cloth under the man's collar for their mouths. Over time, the cloth under the collar becomes the traditional attachment of the British men's shirt. After the industrial revolution, the United Kingdom developed into a developed capitalist country. People were very particular about clothing, food, shelter and transportation. The cloth hanging under the collar became a tie.
Another legend believes that the tie was in the era of the Roman Empire, and the military used it for practical purposes such as protection against cold and dust. The army went to the front line to fight, and the wife hanged a scarf like a silk scarf around their necks for their husbands and friends. They used to wrap and stop the blood in the war. Later, in order to distinguish between soldiers and company, the scarf of different colors was adopted, which evolved into the present and became a necessity for professional clothing.
Tie decoration says that the origin of the tie is the expression of the emotion of human beauty. In the middle of the 17th century, a Croatian cavalry in the French army triumphed back to Paris. They are dressed in mighty uniforms, with a scarf on their necks. They are all in a variety of colors and look very good. They are very spirited and prestige when riding on the horse. Some of the fun-loving dudes in Paris looked at them, and they were more interested, and they acted as if they were wearing a scarf on their collars. On the second day, a minister went to the DPRK, tied a white scarf on the neck collar, and played a beautiful bow tie in front. King Louis XIV met with great appreciation and publicly announced the use of the bow tie as a noble symbol. Order high-ranking people to dress like this.
In summary, there are many sayings about the origin of ties. Every statement has its own point of view. It has a certain reason. It is difficult for each other to persuade each other; but one thing is obvious, that is, the tie originated in Europe. Ties are the product of the development of the material and culture of human society to a certain extent. It is a (opportunity) product, and the wearer and observer influence its development. Marx said: "The progress of society is the pursuit of beauty by mankind." In real life, in order to beautify oneself and make it more attractive, human beings have created the desire to decorate themselves with natural objects or with artificial objects. The origins fully illustrate this point.
In 1668, King Louis XIV of France inspected the Croatian mercenary in Paris, the cloth belt tied on the collar of the mercenary officers and soldiers; it was the earliest tie recorded in the historical records. The history of the tie began here; from then on, the history of the costume culture was in full bloom with a long-lasting and dazzling wonder.
In the reign of Louis XIV in France, the royal Croat coalition gradually became popular with lace-trimmed garments and was decorated with simple knots at the neckline. This is the French Cravate, which is derived from the word Croat. Gradually, the original bow tie was replaced by a smaller high collar with wrinkles. At that time, the fashionable popular style was to wear a long black ribbon on the bottom of the collar. Later, the tie began to widen, and this style became popular in the last 1930s, and the form of the tie gradually became what it is today. In 1949, according to the regulations at the time, gentlemen who did not wear a tie could not enter a formal occasion, and slowly became a special symbol of social status, and thus began to become popular.
The tie is inseparable from talking about a suit. It can be said that the tie and suit are a pair of twin brothers. The creation and development of ties is closely related to the changes in men's clothing in Europe in the seventeenth century. European men of the seventeenth century wore tights, earrings, wrinkled collar shirts, velvet, high-volume hairstyles and a small cap. They were lifted with a tassel stick during salute. The shirt is worn inside as a underwear, the collar decoration is quite gorgeous, the high collar adds a lace, the collar is embroidered with a beautiful ruffle, the collar is folded into a flower ring, and these collars are exposed. It can be seen from the outer coat. Outside the shirt is a vest, then put on a short coat, under the stockings and tight breeches. This glamorous and extravagant costume was the most fashionable among the nobility at the time; it was feminine and delicate, and it was a typical man's clothing in the "Rococo" style. The man who wears this kind of clothing "is only the difference between a woman and a woman." At that time, people had made various efforts to transform men's clothing, but the result was futile.
Until the 18th century French bourgeois revolution declared the end of the court aristocratic life, men gave up their gorgeous costumes and changed them into simple and plain costumes. At that time, the imperial style of the tuxedo was popular: the high waist of the top, the natural sag of the skirt, the large neckline and the lantern sleeves, the slightly under the chest, the gorgeous shirt collar was gone, replaced by the collar, the front collar Black silk tie or tie. The tie is in the shape of a scarf, made of white linen, cotton cloth, silk, etc., two circles around the neck, cross in front of the collar, then hang down, and also bowed. This can be seen in the Francis novel "Tie": "His dark green top has a tall collar. He wears a Nanjing purple vest, and a black silk wide tie wraps around his neck for three times." The poet Byron was very particular about the tie, and when he got a satisfactory style, the tie that had been abandoned was piled up. At that time, women also tied ties, and an Ang Princess liked to combine black ribbons and lace ties to create an elegant and chic bow tie.
The suit was adopted as a sportswear around 1850. Around 1870, people began to wear suits, and the tie became fashionable, an indispensable decoration with a suit. According to the analysis of some costume experts, the tie shows the gender characteristics of the people just like the corsets and skirts. It symbolizes two rational senses of responsibility and embodies a spiritual world that is serious and law-abiding. This is precisely the deliberate pursuit of men at that time. of. At this time, the shape of the tie is strip-shaped, usually obliquely cut, and the interlining cloth is interposed, and the length and width are changed, and the color is mainly black. It is said that the first tie knot was invented in England in 1868. At the end of the 19th century, the tie made by the Duke of Windsor was a symbol of the artist at the end of the 19th century, when the shape of the tie was basically affected.
At the end of the 19th century, the tie was introduced to the United States. The Americans invented the string tie (or denim tie), and the black string tie is a typical accessory for the 19th century western and southern gentlemen. Later, a string tie fixed by a sliding metal ring appeared, called Paul's tie. The tie basically follows the strip style at the end of the 19th century, and the 45° angle is cut obliquely. The inner lining cloth and the lining silk have certain standards for the length and width, and the color patterns are various. After centuries of evolution and development, with the improvement of the level of civilization, the tie has become more and more art and fine, from style and color to more beautiful.
