A Man’s Guide to the Scarf

Most men’s scarves are approximately 10 inches wide, 70 inches long, and made from either a solid or patterned cut of cloth designed to wrap around the neck.

In a nutshell, a scarf is a simple rectangle of fabric.

Yet most men are baffled as to how to properly wear one, and worse, many feel the wearing of a scarf is somehow effeminate.

The purpose of this article is to tackle these problems head on.

1st – Wearing a scarf isn’t difficult.  In this article I’ll lay out a few rules and help you understand the basics of choosing the right one for your needs.

2nd – Scarves are manly.  They have been a staple in men’s wardrobes for over 2000 years, with the world’s militaries using them as rank insignia and unit designators.  From the Terracotta Warriors of China to modern-day desert military units, we see scarves used because they provide value in inclement weather.  Look at photos of the world’s greatest military aviators or soldiers fighting in the Battle of the Bulge, and you’ll see lots of scarves, and nary a girly man in sight.
