Abstract (en)

[origin: US6209136B1] The invention relates to a multipurpose necktie (1) with an overall length consisting of a neck portion (2) of one width, a tie portion (3), and a front apron (4). The tie portion can be tied to a knot. The multipurpose necktie is made in one piece and variable in that at least one foldable portion of the front apron of a first length of at least 15 cm is constructed from at least two freely foldable flaps. An additional possibility of variation is provided by an adjustability of the overall length of the multipurpose necktie, the overall length being repeatedly variable, and/or by an adjustability of the width of neck portion (2), the width being repeatedly variable. Furthermore, a method is provided, which uses the multiple usability of the multipurpose necktie with advantage. The multipurpose necktie of the present invention is characterized by its variety for different occasions, be they of the formal or casual kind. The multipurpose necktie also offers the possibility of being suitably worn not only by men, but also by women as a scarf of the like with blouses.
