The cravat, also known as day cravat, is a predecessor of the modern tie. Its origins lie in the british tradition of horseraces. Today, a cravat is mostly worn at leisure time events, as well as in hunting. The cravat should be worn exclusively with a classical shirt. The appearance of a cravat considerably enhances every outfit through it’s natural elegance, especially when it is of such distinguished quality as the von Floerke® designs are. The silk is hand-sewn and double-sided.
