Pre-Tied Ascots

Think it's a pain to get the right knot in your tie? Apparently some of the Victorian gents did too. Here are examples of ascots that came pre-tied. The knot is already sewn in place, and the neck band ends in a point which slides in one side of the knot. After you have pulled it down, little spikes in the pointy end grab the fabric in the knot and ensure it does not pull out-- very similar to the way the belt buckles on the back of waistcoats work.
