Can any one help,
Is there a generic name given to this ladies type of Tie?
I thought jabot too. They are typically more ruffled or flounced than this. I don't know of another term though, and I would certainly describe this as a jabot.
also referred to as a cravat. i have also seen them called tuxedo ties.
It looks like the clip-on tie version of an ascot to me.
I would say a cravat, as Ruth suggested. Oops! I mean...Mary!
Actually that was Mary!
I think Ascot is relevant as well...
Thanks to everyone who replied.
On the side of the box they are in I had marked it Jabots? and then stored them.
I showed them to a friend recently and she said they were ladies Cravats.
I always thought, like Ruth, Jabots, male/female, were more ruffled or lacey, some of the others I have are.
I'm not sure what an Ascot looks like, perhaps someone could post a picture.
I'll play safe for now and keep box marked up as Jabots.
Much appreciated everyone.
An Ascot can refer to a few similar accessories, but essentially it's a long scarf, tied high near the neck, so the long ends fall down at the front of the shirt, or are tucked into an open shirt. Can be worn by men and women.
Ok, Yes, Thanks Ruth, I know what you mean, Ascots, I will remember that.
Separate names with a comma.
