Where Did That Name Come From? 

Ascot/Cravat – The must-have neckband of the well-to-do in the 1800’s, the Ascot is a type of Cravat named for its pervasive presence at the Ascot Racecourse in England. The Cravat itself is named for the French word for Croatia, natives of which popularized the style at the court of Louis XIII. Advertisements
