There has been a fashion change recently in the kilt outfit with many wearers electing to wear a ruche tie instead of a regular bow-tie. So, with this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at this different type of tie in greater detail.
Ruche Tie – What Actually is it?
In the past, a kilt wearer would elect to wear a standard neck tie or a bow tie. But now, a ruche tie is all the rage. It can be best described as a cross between a standard necktie and a cravat. You will notice that a ruche is a little wider than the necktie, with a more advanced knot. They are generally worn in a formal kilt outfit, often with a dress sporran. It is recommended that you match the color of the tie with the predominant color of your tartan.
How is a Ruche Tie Manufactured?
This type of tie is a little more difficult to manufacture. The cloth that is used in each tie is basically cut from a template. You then cut out the material for two sleeves for the tie, a knot and a loop. If a tartan ruche tie is being manufactured, the seamstress will have to take extra care to ensure that the cut keeps the symmetrical look of the tie, which can be a rather difficult undertaking.
