Bow ties are thought to have originated with Croatian mercenaries—in the 1600's—who would use a piece of fabric to hold together the openings of their shirts. This evolved into the cravat, which then evolved into the bow tie. It became a fashion staple by the 19th century.
Many men prefer the self-tie bow tie for the ability to fine-tune its appearance, and for the inherent satisfaction of doing it themselves.
