The absurdity of the necktie

My grandfather thinks that whoever invented the necktie should have been hanged with the first one. And I am inclined to agree.

Before hanging the poor fellow though, I would have sure wanted to know what was going through his mind. Because as far as I can tell, a necktie serves no purpose whatsoever.

It is a leftover strip of fabric that you tie in a knot around your neck then let the ends dangle down the front of your shirt. What is the point?

And even more bizarre to me than the fashion itself, is how in the world it came to be regarded as essential to professional attire?

I just don't get it.
