SCOTTISH dress ties:
bow ties and ruched cravats.
Choosing the Right Tie for Highlandwear
The bow tie is the more formal option, while the ruched cravat is more casual. The bow tie is often worn with a dress jacket, while the ruched cravat is often worn with a sweater or a casual jacket.
Both neckties can be worn with a variety of tartans, but it is important to choose a tie that complements the tartan of the kilt. For example, a black or navy bow tie would look good with a Black Watch tartan kilt, while a red or green ruched cravat would look good with a clan tartan kilt.
When choosing a necktie for highlandwear, it is important to keep in mind the formality of the occasion. For a formal event, such as a wedding or a Burns Night dinner, a bow tie is the most appropriate option. For a more casual event, such as a ceilidh or a day out at the Highland Games, a ruched cravat is a more comfortable and stylish option.
