Terrific Ties

bow-tieThe Friday File: Yesterday was National Bow-Tie Day. Bow–ties were probably first worn by Croatian mercenaries and brought to Western Europe by French soldiers following the 30 Years War (1618-1648). This year about $850 million will be spent purchasing neckware with 7% of that total, $59.5 million, going to bow-ties. In the southeast, bow-ties are 14% of all neckware purchases; highest in the nation. Hopefully none are dastardly clip-ons!
