Men, don’t skip the scarf. The accessory is both practical and stylish and has actually been a staple in men’s wardrobes for more than 2,000 years, with militaries all over the world using them to designate rank and unit as well as to protect soldiers from inclement weather. Not only will a scarf keep you warm and toasty as the weather cools off, but it will also allow you to add flair to your wardrobe, which let’s face it, most of us guys need. Here at Garmany, we have the softest, most luxurious cashmere scarves from Loro Piana, which you really need to feel to believe. Wondering how to wear one? There are tons of options, but read on for a few of our favorites:
You can simply drape a scarf over your jacket or shirt under your overcoat. There’s no tying involved. This is done purely for style, to add some needed color, pattern or texture to your outfit.
The overhand knot or ascot
Lay the scarf over your shoulders. Then take both ends and fold them over and under as if you were starting to lace a pair of shoes. Tighten it closer to the neck and smooth out the front.
The once around
Wrap the scarf once around your neck, leaving the two ends dangling in front.
The twice around
A good choice for when you really need to bundle up. Wrap the scarf twice around your neck, leaving the two short ends dangling in front (or you can tuck them in).
The slip knot or Parisian
Fold the scarf in half at the middle and hold that bend in one hand while you put the loose ends around your neck. Tuck the loose ends through the bend and pull. You may need to adjust, pushing the knot up toward your neck.
