Commercial links[edit]

Yes, I linked to a commercial page or two for the knot pictures. No, I'm not associated with any of them. Yes, I'd appreciate it if someone links to non-commercial pages which are just as good.

Jabot knot[edit]

If anyone has any information about how to tie a Jabot knot, that would be great

tie the fourinhand but don't pull all the free length all the way through at the final step, instead tighten the knot around the neck and the around the free length so you leave the little extra pouf at the top. 02:29, 5 May 2007 (UTC)


I think a picture would be a very good addition to this article, if anyone has an ascot. I certainly haven't ever seen one. Peter T.S. 00:28, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

I agree, but I'm short on time at the moment, unfortunately. Whoever kindly put in the picture of the Jabot, many thanks, but that's a different piece of neckwear, which Wikipedia apparently doesn't have any info on either. I know there's information on the 'Net, and I've retained the picture link here so that when someone has time to write up the Jabot, the pictue will be here. Jabot.jpg,
Incidentally, the last link on the page contains a picture that fits every description I've read of an ascot. But it's probably copyright, so I'm not just nicking it.
The picture right now doesn't even look like an ascot. -- 04:44, 14 October 2006 (UTC)


Could anyone add some pronunciation help here? Rogerdpack (talk) 16:08, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

honor guard[edit]

Where the article says "United States Navy Ceremonial Guard" the "Ceremonial Guard" link pointed to an article on the Canadian Ceremonial Guard. I changed this to the general Honor Guard article to which I think it was meant to refer. (talk) 16:20, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

US Army[edit]

The US Army calls this a branch scarf; the colors have specific meanings.[1] --  Gadget850 talk 16:21, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
