In the 1920s, bowties were starting to fall out of fashion for everyday wear. Although they were still the standard for formal evening wear.
For the most part, during the day men mostly wore neckties. In 1926, a designer from New York named Jesse Langsdorf designed the tie that was formed from three separate pieces sewn together. This allowed the tie to retain its shape when it was tied, and was so successful that this shape is still used today.
