New vintage-inspired Victorian men’s ties are far more accessible and varied than real vintage, and work just as well. In the early years, men wore cravats and ascots tied in many different ways that changed from year to year. The long neckties didn’t become common till the end of the era.
Victorian neckties were often very skinny and either hand knit or had a square end made of silk. Bow ties, too, were a newer invention. Out in the Wild West, men more simple western bow ties, double ties (Doc Holliday style), or just a neck scarf. Solids, thin stripes, paisley, damask, and small polka dots were common patterns in rich jewel tones and black.
These new style Victorian men’s ties offer the Victorian tie fashion but with modern materials and comfort in mind.
