This paisley number is a large square, like a lot of silk scarves.
Hold it from diagonal corners, twist it gently into a long wrap and knot it around the neck, as you would tie an ascot.
The lower on the neck you wear it, the less “stuffy” it will look. Ideally, it should just peek out from under the shirt.
Like a tweed waistcoat, a hopsack one in a neutral color can be mixed and matched with dozens of different outfits, whether you’re heading to a business meeting or a fancy cocktail party.
A beard is one of the most effective accessories for allowing a man to pull-off a more forward look.
It makes everything look masculine and rugged, even a silk scarf worn as a ascot.
Don’t be afraid of letting it get little bushy, just make sure it’s evenly trimmed with clean sharp edges.
