STEINKIRK

Picture of Steinkirk

Steinkirk was a late 17th century fashion in which a fine quality lace neck cloth or cravat was worn studiously disarrayed, with the front ends twisted together and passed through a buttonhole or attached with a brooch to one side of the coat. The Steinkirk originated following the battle of Steinkirk in 1692 at which the soldiers were caught unawares and had no time to dress smartly before being plunged into battle.
