  1. I was just thinking....other than that they're required in certain situations, why do neck ties even exist? I don't mean any disrespect to neck ties, they're cool and all, but what are they for?
  2. To make you look punk.

    "There is a clear-cut relationship between fashion on one hand, and power and wealth on the other. Fashion generally follows power and wealth."

    Simply a status symbol that arose during a time of war. ( ie. when extravagant textile products were considered a luxury.)

    Though the oldest known instances date from ancient China.

    No, you wont catch me in one.... :p :rolleyes:

    The most plausible explanation that I have heard so far is that ties are en evil plot by women to restrict blood flow to secondary brains of male population :)
