The cravat is a type of neck tie that uses lighter fabrics and is seen as a very fancy accessory for men. The causal cravat is wrapped around the neck and tucked into an open collar shirt as opposed to a wedding cravat that is similar to a tie but has a scrunched knot. Cravats are usually more old fashioned and expensive than ties, so this may be a reason why it is less common.
