Baylandi Cravat-Scarf for Men A Touch of Elegance for Today

 The modern necktie originates from Croatian mercenary cavalrymen who enrolled in the French Army during the Thirty Years War-hence, the name ‘cravate’ in French-introducing their distintive neck accessory into Western European mores.

More a fine neckerchief than scarf, this bit of colored fabric found itself around the necks of Louis XIV’s royal soldiery before earning its most gallant reputation at court, resolutely frivolous yet obedient to the delicate protocol dictated by the masters of good taste.
Over time, the cravat successively folded to fashion’s demands, becoming both a women’s and men’s accessory. Whether slightly puffed, lying flat, shimmering, soft, simply neutral or asserting its importance and posture-all of this, the cravat incarnated upon the necks of history.
It evolved, both modern and virile, into the necktie we know today, which also assumed elements of English military dress along its path. Symbolic of men’s formal dress, the cravat is also a unique focus of fantasy. More or less large, colorful or flashy according to fashions and eras, holding ground at times by only a thread, the cravat’s importance was cut short by the cultural revolution of the 1960s, before returning to the fore in the 1980s and its ‘preppy’ aesthetic.
If specialists have found 85 ways to tie a tie, all are unanimous in saying that a true cravat worthy of its name, should be in silk-occasionally in wool-and always noble. The knot, about which French classical writer La Rochefoucauld quipped, “is to the cravat as the mind is to the man”, adapts in volume according to the typology of the buttoned shirt collar, whether English, Italian or French in style, and according to the typology of the neck, whether it be a short bull neck or an elongated giraffe-like one-or, no neck at all! 
Thus, he who wears any necktie accessory is free to put himself forward, while avoiding a faux pas at all costs. Add to this the charge of the necktie’s role as financial indicator; for, the periodical return of the necktie in the dress of financial analysts coincides systematically with the return of a crisis.
Obeying a series of visual and generational codes, which at times can render it undesirable, the traditional cravat returns to the times with Baylandi.
It is a cravat that is silken and handsewn, precious and knotted with the gestures of elegance. A cravat that hides the face, as our era requires, but assumes its role entirely. A hybrid cravat, between history and now. A versatile cravat, always returning to its original functions. An “all-in-one” cravat that gives free rein to a natural and casual instinct for masculine elegance, according to each man’s schedule, meetings and professional imperatives, even through a screen.
BAYLANDI, where the cravat returns as a masculine manifesto.
