sure, there is cravats, neckscarves and bowties, but how out of period was I for wearing this green necktie with my outfit?
(i found it in my closet and it just matched my vest nicely...)

 Like many accessories worn by Steampunks  - they are more  worn to go with the mood than authentic to any era.

Hmm... I suppose it would depend on the pattern (if any) and material, but notwithstanding these what we would recognise as a modern tie would not have been out of place in the late Victorian/Edwardian period.

says long neckties originated in mid to late 19th century.
This is Matthew Brady in 1875


Vests used to button up higher than they do now, that makes the tie look more "old-fashioned".
