It was too hot in the American south to wear lace or silk cravats which were really popular since the turn of the 19th Century. However, in the early 1800s Plantation Owners and Aristocrats displayed their social superiority by wearing wide ribbons tied in bows. These were usually worn with a low-collared Wing Tip, or Turnover Collar Shirt, the Plantation Tie was the first American Designed Neckwear.

As the country moved West the Plantation Tie went west, becoming part of Mississippi River Boat Culture. Mark Twain himself was Painted wearing a Plantation Tie. It is also part of the uniform, along with a fancy white shirt and a light suit, of the Infamous Riverboat Gambler. The leading Proponent of the Plantation Tie until a few years ago was the Kentucky Colonel Sanders of chicken fame, who is never pictured without one.
