is a Bolo Tie?
bolo tie, also called a shoestring necklace or simply a bola, can
be thought of as a Western necktie. A bolo tie can range from an inexpensive string
tie to an elaborate sterling silver and leather affair. Maybe your younger
brother had one of those string ties that he wore with his cowboy hat and cap
A bolo has three parts:
cord that goes around the neck is called the lariat. It is traditionally braided
from leather, and most commonly black leather. The lariat can also be made from
woven cord, thus the term string tie.
ends of the lariat are finished off with tips. The tips can be made of sterling
silver, copper or other metals. They can be machine made tips or hand made tips.
finally we get to the Pièce de résistance which means the focal
point, the best part or feature, the artistic creation for which the other portions
exist ! The slide. The slide is a decorative feature that,
as its name indicates, slides up and down on the lariat. The slide can be worn
up at the neck in the same position as a necktie knot (formal) or down lower for
a more casual effect. Slides can vary as widely as the artists
imagination and can utilize many materials.
