The origin, purpose and present day function (if any) and role of the necktie (including bow tie)

Clearly the necktie could only have been invented in the first place to hold the shirt together before the invention of buttons.

This is a self-evident truth:

The more foppish Ancient Chinese soldiers evidently put on neckties over their breastplates.

Could they have been the first to use ties as a fashion accessory, instead of just a practical necessity?

Curiously, women have both buttons and neckties, but they don't know how either are supposed to work. Rolling Eyes

Marlene, however, knew exactly how everything works. I love you I love you I love you I love you 

She was also the only human ever to look good with a cigarette (unlit, of course; lighting them just makes a mess):

Of course I had to google images on the phrase "naked necktie."

I should have realized there would be novel ways of wearing them.  

It might have made a good thread, but I wouldn't want to see any of those guy photos posted.
