The ascot is descended from the earlier type of cravat widespread in the early 19th century, most notably during the age of Beau Brummell, made of heavily starched linen and elaborately tied around the neck.
Later in the 1880s, amongst the upper-middle-class in Europe men began to wear a more loosely tied version for formal daytime events with daytime full dress in frock coats or with morning coats. It remains a feature of morning dress for weddings today.
We offer a full line of men's period necktie styles which are suitable for movie and TV production, theatrical, living history and performing arts requirements, and are also perfect for giving a vintage feel to a modern wardrobe. Please contact us if you have any questions!
