The Ascot cravat is the forerunner of today's four-in-hand tie. These extremely wide ties experienced a surge of popularity in Victorian England that reached its peak at the turn of the last century. The upper middle class and archetypal dandies wore them with dress coats or frock coats. Around 1920, ascots were eclipsed by modern tie forms.
Our ascot tie in consists of two layers of floral patterned cloth held together at the top with a metal pin. A neckband a with hook and loop fastener means you don't have the bother of tying complicated knots.
