What is the purpose of a tie?
August 6, 2017 6:27am CST
It is something I have been trying to figure out... Here are a few things I could come up with.. a. A dark broad and long tie can save your shirt from the curry attack if you have not learned how not to spill some and eat.. b. A long tie can help like a rope. You don't have to carry one..you already have one around your neck.. c. You can substitute the tie for a kerchief, since kerchief is needed for any of the ladies. d. If you have a leaking pen the dark tie would do the honors of hiding the leakage e. If you have been lazy to stitch those buttons, the tie would hide the broken ones.. I hope I have hit the bull's eye with one of these.. So guys..please enlighten me.

Very helpful pieces of advice! :-) I don't know if you're seriously interested in the history of the tie or cravat. If so, there's a lot of info on Wikipedia. Too much to retell here. @Kandae11 In case you may want to read that, too.

Lol..I too have wondered about this especially when little children are made to wear it as part of the school uniform in a place that is hot and humid and they break into rashes wearing polyester ties , because cotton ones don't stand well!
