Top 5: Autumn / Winter Scarves For Men

Scarves are a pretty big deal for men believe it or not. Some blokes hate wearing scarves for the fear they’ll look like a maypole, some guys wear really bad scarves (football matches don’t count). Lastly you have the more evolved few that know that a scarf can say many things about a man e.g. confidence, style, warm neck… In the benefit of all of the uninitiated, we have done the leg work to make sure no one gets caught out in the cold. Here’s our list of the Top 5 Autumn & Winter scarves 2013 edition.


Scarf #1 – Coal Headwear – Emerson Scarf
A cheap and cheerful start to our list is this marle grey Emerson Scarf by Coal Headwear. It’s small, but as the saying goes: ‘good things come in small packages’ and this is no exception. Knitted with 100% Merino wool, it’d be sure to have you feeling snug in no time. (Price: $69.00 BUY)


Scarf #2 – Rick Owens – Merino Wool Blanket Scarf
If our first suggestion was too small for you, check out this massive yet completely wearable Merino Wool Blanket Scarf by Rick Owens. As the name suggests, it’s made with pure Merino wool and it’s a the size of a small blanket but once it’s wrapped around your neck and potentially the shoulders of a date you will hardly notice it at all. (Price: £465.00 BUY)


Scarf #3 – Lanvin – Green & Gold Silk Scarf
This Green & Gold printed scarf is a prime example of Lanvin’s approach to modern design. A very wearable accessory for both casual and not so casual outings, it may look light and flimsy but let me assure you of the warmth of 100% silk. A great addition for adding a bit of flair and dandy to even the dullest of suits. (Price: $175.00 BUY)


Scarf #4 – Alexander McQueen – God Save McQueen Scarf
In recognition of the late, great Alexander McQueen we’ve chosen this almost regal: God Save McQueen Printed Scarf. At nearly £400, it ain’t cheap but boy does it make a statement. Emblazoned with a withered looking union jack and using the bold colours of Red, White and Blue, it’d be sure to make you look cool, but warm too. (Price: £371.00 BUY)


Scarf #5 – Burberry – Blue Check Silk & Wool Blend Scarf
Last on our list is an offering by a brand synonymous with their selection of quality scarves and I hear their trench coats aren’t that bad either. Made with a blend of silk and wool this Blue Check Scarf by Burberry is fine enough to be folded down under a suit jacket or wrapped around the neck with reckless abandon. (Price: $350.00 BUY)
