A day cravat can add a pop of color and personality to your casual suit, giving your work or weekend look a stylish edge. Our day cravats come in a wide range of patterns, colors and fabrics to suit all budgets and tastes. You can also choose from optional matching handkerchiefs for a coordinated look.
The cravat is one of the longest-surviving trends in the history of men’s fashion. It began life in the 17th Century as Croatian military-wear but savvy trend-setters in Paris liked it so much, they made it mainstream. The word ‘cravat’ stems from the French Baroque slang for Croatian.
Over the years the cravat evolved into the contemporary neck tie and the bow tie – but recently this flouncy forerunner has been introduced back into high fashion, giving men a way to add a little pizzazz to their smart-casual or formal outfits.
The day cravat is, as the name suggests, designed to be worn with day-wear, beneath an open-necked collar. It is a statement piece, serving both to cover the neck and add color to a smart-casual outfit. We recommend pairing your cravat with a matching handkerchief, which you can fold into your breast pocket to anchor the color scheme running through your outfit.
