No, neckwear is not only ties. Neckwear refers to various
styles of clothing worn around the neck. They are worn for fashion, combat,
or protection against the influences of weather. Common neckwear today include
bow ties, neckties (cravat), scarves, feather boas and shawls. Historically,
ruffs and bands were worn. Neck warmers have become popular for winter sports
and for people living in cold environments. A neck gaiter is an article of
clothing worn about the neck for warmth. It is a closed tube of fabric, often thick
fleece or synthetic, which is slipped on and off over the head. It can also be pulled
up over the mouth to keep out wind and sand. Some balaclavas have a thin hood attached
to what is essentially a neck gaiter.
In menswear a necktie is a popular form of neckwear.
A necktie, or simply tie, is a long piece of cloth worn for decorative purposes
around the neck, resting under the shirt collar and knotted at the throat.
Variants include the ascot tie, bow tie, bolo tie, zipper tie, cravat and clip-on
tie. The modern necktie, ascot, and bow tie are descended from the cravat. Neck
ties are generally unsized, but may be available in a longer size. In some cultures
men and boys wear neckties as part of regular office attire or formal wear.
The bow tie is a type of necktie. It consists of a ribbon of fabric tied around
the collar of a shirt in a symmetrical manner so that the two opposite ends form
loops. There are generally three types of bow ties: the pre-tied, the clip on, and
the self tie. Pre-tied bow ties are ties in which the distinctive bow is sewn
onto a band that goes around the neck and clips to secure. Some "clip-ons" dispense
with the band altogether, instead clipping straight to the collar. The traditional
bow tie, consisting of a strip of cloth which the wearer has to tie by hand, is
also known as a "self-tie," "tie-it-yourself," or "freestyle" bow tie.
A scarf, also known as a Kremer, muffler or neck-wrap, is
a piece of fabric worn around the neck, near the head or around the waist for warmth,
cleanliness, fashion, or religious reasons. They can come in a variety of different
styles. fabrics, and colors.
A ruff is an item of clothing worn in Western Europe from
the mid-sixteenth century to the mid-seventeenth century. Fortunately, these
are no longer popular.
Bands are a form of formal neckwear, worn by some clergy
and lawyers, and with some forms of academic dress. They take the form of two oblong
pieces of cloth, usually though not invariably white, which are tied to the neck.
Bands is usually plural because they require two similar parts and did not come
as one piece of cloth. Those worn by clergy are often called preaching bands,
tabs or Geneva bands; those worn by lawyers are called barrister's bands or, more
usually in Canada, tabs.
