A fancy-looking piece of male clothing that’s a cross between a tie and a scarf.
Both are worn around the throat.
One is tucked under the collar but outside the shirt… and the other worn under both the shirt and the collar.
If you wear a cravat with a smoking jacket, you are Noel Coward…
If you wear a tie with no shirt, you are a male stripper.
And if you are seriously considering wearing a cravat out in public, you are over fifty and mad.
A cravat, however one wears it and regardless of the wearer’s class or breeding, always leaves the word, ‘tosser’ in my mind.
I can’t for the life of me think why.
Oh, hang on…. yes, I can.
