Neckties can also be worn as part of a uniform (e.g.
military, school, waitstaff), whereas some choose to wear them as everyday clothing attire.
Neckties are traditionally worn with the top shirt button fastened, and the tie knot resting between the collar points.
There is a long history of neckwear worn by soldiers (Roman), whether as part of a uniform or as a symbol of belonging to a particular group.
General Sherman is seen wearing a leather stock in several American Civil War-era photographs.
