In the 1900-1920s, Edwardian men’s ties came in several shapes. The bow tie was used for day or evening wear, but the new necktie became increasingly popular. These early ties were like silk scarfs with pointed tips. Dark solids, stripes, polka dots and paisley were all common patterns. In the later years, the skinny tie with a square edge made of silk or knit wool was the new fad. For morning suits, the ascot was still worn as the most formal option for day wear. Very formal occasions called for a white bow tie. Scroll to the bottom to see pictures of 1900-1910s neckties.
