I had a pair of pj pants with side adjusters and he added belt loops later for me. Can be done

Never heard of it until now.

Seem like people who collect "fun" ties - if so not for me.

I just saw Fry on QI repeat the shallow theory that the Croats invented the tie and it was taken up by the French hence cravat named - the French word for Croats.

However ties or a form of neckwear has been around longer than that.

The famous Terracotta Warriors of the eight thousand strong underground army buried in front of the Emperor Qinshihuang's tomb (r. 221-207 BC) can be seen to wear different forms of what we can easily recognise as ties or cravats or scarves. . Some of the Warriors can be seen to be wearing a variation of a FIH.

At the time chinese knew about silk and had were able to weave silk to make ties. In 16 BC during the reign of Ch'eng Ti his frontier garrison was given one million rolls of silk = 10m long X 53CM wide.

The early Romans did too. the soldiers on the Column Of Trajan in Rome A.D 113 has some 2000+ figures engaged in battle. The largest of the soldiers sculptured in relief about 60 - 70- cm high are wearing neckcloths. Some like a scarve around their neck and tucked into armour, others like knotted kerchiefs as in cowboy movies, and others with a short version of a FIH in silk or wool.

Around the Pacific and other islands, in the Americas and across to africa, neckwear in the form of feathers, shells, or precious metal and were symbolic of, at least, if not actual, markers/granters of authority and status.

Note even from this small sample of pics there is a great variation in the way the ties are worn suggesting they were clearly an item of fashion, style and / or rank and some considerable care was taken with the arrangement around the neck. Clearly Brummel wasn't the first dandy to fiddle with his neckwear for hours each morning.

See pics below.

Not a great fan of STBs.

Have the Carminas pictured above and they're nice enough though.

$20?

 

I bought this for $2:

 

1000

 

For a pair of NST I think the Meermin Cordovan offering is pretty good, although I've seen mixed reviews on their leather quality.
