    Same reason women wear a belt. To accentuate your "parts".

    For a man, it draws attention to your thick neck and manly shoulders.

    Well.........maybe not for you, but I think that's a possibility for it's initial purpose?

    A belt is to keep your pants up.

    True. But it's also a fashion statement. Belts (for women) can be worn as high as under the breast, or on the waistline. Both are to draw attention to our curves.

    They started out as scarves for soldiers. How they evolved to neckties, I may have missed that day in history class. Froggy will know.

    While the original ties were worn by soldiers during Roman times to catch sweat and to block the wind...Modern ties have evolved to "tie' all the color schemes & accessories of a suit together ...as well as to hide the seam & buttons of the dress shirt, giving a "finished", professional appearance ....
