Tie, which is worn daily by more than 600 million men around the world, comes from Croatia. The legend began during the Thirty Years War from 1618 to 1648, when the Croatian rented soldiers who served in the French army, worn around the neck small knotted scarves. With this fashion ad- dition they attracted the attention of Parisians, who immediately adopted it and named it after Croats – Cravat.
