Ascots were introduced in England in 1876 at the Royal Ascot race, and they are still right on target for many occasions today. Originally ascots gained currency amongst the European upper-classes, being worn with morning coats and frock coats for daytime formal occasions. The ascot's present-day popularity as wedding attire originates from this tradition. Even into the early 1900's, the ascot remained a staple of business morning dress.
Our original version features Velcro closures and is available in a full range of neck sizes.
How do I order Ascots?
Since Ascots are made to order, we do not have photos of each coordinate for each fabric.
To have any of our fabrics made as Ascots, simply enter the ordering information for your Ascots in the appropriate section of the order form on each individual bow tie (or necktie) page.
Because Ascots are made to order, please allow two to three weeks for delivery. Also, because they are made-to-order items, Ascots are non-returnable except for defects in material or workmanship. They are eligible, however, for our 3- and 6- item quantity discounts.
