    How It's Made - Tartan Ruche Ties

    I've been back to our workroom to take a closer look at how Ruche Ties are created! A little sneak-peek behind the scenes here at Houstons!

    Let me know what you think!

    Very interesting, thank you. I had no idea whether you had to tie them or clip them on. I don't think they were invented when I got married.
    If you are going to do it, do it in a kilt!

    While pre-tied ruches—or any other neck tie—are convenient, there is something to be said for learning to do-it-yourself. A ruche tie (aka cocolupa) is just an ascot cravat tied with a loose 4-in-hand knot.

    Thank for that. Can't say I'm a lot wiser, but I'll know what to look for if I ever have to find out. If I can avoid it, I don't wear ties and when I do it always amazes me that I can still form some sort of reasonable knot.
    If you are going to do it, do it in a kilt!
