When it comes to accessories, the scarf can be one of the most versatile pieces in a man’s wardrobe. Due to its various sizes, fabrics, patterns, and uses, the scarf is a complimentary item to any look, all year round, even in the Summer!
This lighter scarf is made of wool and fine silk. Made with a dobby weave and hand-dyed in small batches for the perfect finish.
Try tying in an overhand knot for a cool, casual look. Lay the scarf over your shoulders. Take both ends of the scarf, and tie them “over-and-under,” as if you were starting to do up a giant pair of shoelaces. Adjust the front to be a bit smooth and tighten closer to the neck as desired. It looks great tucked underneath a chore jacket.
Took the plunge and went for a light-weigth scarf, the fabric and finish surpassed my expecations and it's become and everyday essential for me.
2,000 years in the making...
Popularised by aviators in both World Wars to keep their necks warm and prevent chaffing, scarves have been a staple in men’s wardrobes for over 2000 years. In Ancient Rome, men wore them as 'sweat cloths' used to keep cool and dry sweat. The military has also used them as rank insignia and unit designators for many years, from the Terracotta Warriors of China to modern-day desert military units.
The simplest of all and sometimes, all you need. Simply drape the scarf around the back of the neck and let it fall on either side to add another layer and pop of colour.
Overhand Knot (Also known as Ascot)
Lay the scarf over your shoulders. Take both ends of the scarf, and tie them “over-and-under,” as if you were starting to do up a giant pair of shoelaces. Adjust the front to be a bit smooth and tighten closer to the neck as desired. Looks great tucked underneath a chore jacket.
Fold the scarf in half at the middle so that the ends touch and hold the doubled-over bend in one hand while passing the loose ends around the back of your neck with the other. Tuck the ends through the bend and pull snug. This is the most common look in the &SONS style catalogue.
