What is "Necktie" - Definition & Explanation

A necktie (usually just called a tie) is a piece of material worn around the neck. The modern necktie's original name was the four-in-hand tie. It is usually a dress requirement for businessmen and probably the most common father's gift in the world. The modern necktie along with the Ascot and the bowtie are all descended from the cravat.
