WEARING A NECKTIE FOR IDENTITY
ikipedia says that a necktie, or simply tie, is a long piece of cloth worn for decorative purposes around the neck, resting under the shirt collar and knotted at the throat.
The wearing of ties is common nowadays.
Neck ties are generally unsized, but may be available in a longer size. In some cultures men and boys wear neckties as part of regular office attire or formal wear. Some women wear them as well but usually not as often as men. Neckties can also be worn as part of a uniform (e.g. military, school and waitstaff), whereas some choose to wear them as everyday clothing attire.
Some choirs taking part in a competition, they make order for special neckties as part of their uniform.
Most schools in Fiji, their students wear neckties as part of the school uniform. In many cases students are indentified by neckties.
According to Wikipedia the use of coloured and patterned neckties indicating the wearer’s membership in a club, military regiment, school, professional association etcetera, dates only from late19th century England.
Most secondary schools here in Fiji maintain neckties with a specific design as part of their school uniforms. Many private primary schools also require students to wear ties.
In some schools ties are worn on special occasions with the school blazer or by prefects.
There are four main knots used to knot neckties. In rising order of difficulty, they are:
the four-in-hand knot. The four-in-hand knot may be the most common.
the Pratt knot (the Shelby knot)
the half-Windsor knot their
the Windsor knot.
