I'm looking at some photos of early 20th century cowboys.
It seems for a brief period regular four in hand ties were the norm and not bolos, string ties or wild rags.
I'm talking men on horseback too, not just in Sunday attire.

WW2 photos show our aviators in dress uniform, with tie tucked into the shirt under leather jackets.

I wear a variation on this, my one Hermes de riguer ( that's french) for flying with my A 2 jacket.

I'm tired of boys in suits sans tie. I want to push back-hard.

Any suggestions for other activities where men once kept ties on?

I have memories of watching "A Bridge Too Far" where British Airborne officers wore a tie under their para smock. Imagine the pride in your appearance if you wear an issue khaki shirt and tie to battle.

Ties also used to be de rigeur for school. Not so much anymore. Let alone church, where a suit used to be the norm, unlike today where a sweater vest means you're dressed up, even if you're wearing a plain coloured tee underneath.
