The humble scarf
Before we get into this, let’s address the elephant in the room first. Scarfs are manly and they have been a staple in men’s wardrobes for over 2000 years. From the Terracotta Warriors of China to modern-day desert military units, we see scarves used because they provide value in inclement weather. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s dive into the topic of how to rock men’s cashmere scarf.
The first thing you need to know is that wearing a scarf isn’t difficult in any way.
This is, by far, the easiest way to wear a scarf. All you need to do is to simply drape the scarf over your neck and the front of your chest. You don’t need to tie it. This is a loose way of wearing a scarf and it is meant more for ornamentation than actual warmth. It works well if you’re wearing a suit or sports jacket with a deep V-shaped front. This gives you a more mature look especially if it’s a men’s cashmere scarf.
This is also another simple one. However, this time, it involves a little knotting. Normally, it hangs a bit looser around the neck than other knots/wraps, so this style is more show than function. Take the scarf and lay it 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.
This is fast and easy to tie. You create a large warm knot right at the collar of a coat or jacket and this makes it a wind-stopper. It requires a long-thin scarf. Bulky scarfs don’t work well as the end knot usually appear too large. 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. Adjust as needed.
