    Hi Everyone:
    Been a while since I've posted anything although I have occasionally read a few threads as an "anonymous" user. I'm usually short on time and what is worthwhile has already been said - by others :)

    That said the other day I did find a channel by Antonio called RealMenRealStyle This is for the guys that care about how they look. Take a peak and tell me what you think. I'm not associated with Antonio in any form or way I just find it fascinating that in one video he show how a scarf can be tied 7 different ways.

    Enjoy, hope this is not old news.

    Thanks. Freindly people like you is what keeps me interested in TSD. I'm now on spring break so maybe I can keep a thread going :)

    Scarfs.
    I use them in the cold.
    I like the knots.
    There are so many.
    Mine is the Pretzel.


    You?

    I have one scarf, dark blue cashmere that gets broke out perhaps once a year when the temperature drops here in central Florida (acclimation sucks...back in Ohio I'd be running around in a t-shirt). The scarf goes with my only coat, a U.S. Navy "bluejacket" (utility jacket) like the one issued to me in boot camp long long ago.

    As for the knot, it isn't a necktie. Standard twice around the neck and simple loose overhand knot, all tucked inside. That's it.

    Would I wear Tom Baker's old scarf if somebody gave me a three foot version? Probably.

    Yup, just to keep the cold from blowing down into your coat. Not a necktie.
    I have a gray wool scarf. Don't wear it much, just as needed. For me it's function, not fashion.

    I prefer not to wear anything with a high neck. I only wear a scarf if it is bitter cold. Around these parts, it amounts to once or twice per year.

    Bottom line, I've never been encumbered by fashion trends. ;)

    I have quite a few that I've accumulated over the years (mostly as gifts), but they never seem to get used. I spend a lot of time outdoors year-round so winters I'm usually dressed in layers already hence the scarves never seem to get put into service. Maybe if I was in the habit of long walks I might utilize them but about the only time I pull them out is if we're going somewhere that I need to look a little more dressed up than usual. A nice scarf can make an otherwise drab jacket look pretty decent.
    Interesting idea with the knot. My luck is I'd trip, catch it on something, and hang myself.
