Learn 6 Ways How to Tie A Scarf like a Gentleman, and find out what is really important in a men's scarf in terms of quality, length, width etc.
The loop tie:
Before you start tying it, it's important to know that you need something that's at least 70-75 inches long and about 12-15 inches wide. The way you tie it is: You take it the long way, and fold it in half the other way. You tighten the loop and you adjust your scarf. You put it in. Voila! The loop tie!
Generally, as a man, you want a scarf that's about 70-75 inches long, because otherwise, your scarves are just too short - they're not covering you from the elements and, oftentimes, the ends just look ridiculous. For example, here we have an expensive cashmere scarf from Burberry, but it's only sixty inches long. So, for example, if I want to tie a loop tie, it's just very short, and when I walk around it's going to open up and it looks bad.
The loop tie is great for cold winters because you have multiple layers of fabric and it sits very close to your neck so it's really warm... and it's my favorite for cold days.
The second way to tie a scarf is the once-around chest warmer. I like it very much because it's elegant and it looks almost like a scarf from the old days of the gentry in the nineteenth century.
Open your coat, then throw it around your neck, should be about one-third to two-thirds. You open it up, put it on your chest... Once around. And then... on the other side of the chest. You close your coat, and that's it! Voila! The once-around chest warmer! I like it with a double sided scarf because it shows you the different textures, it's warm enough for the winter, yet it's not bulky.
The third way to tie a scarf is the once-around with a simple knot at the end. You start, again, similar like before: throw it around your neck - about one-third to two-thirds. Then you tie it around your neck like so and you make a little knot. And that's it: the once-around with a knot scarf! It's still warm - sits tightly around your neck - the little knot makes it interesting because it looks slightly different and I like this way to tie a scarf because it's rather simple, it's quick, yet with the little knot at the end, it really changes up things, and if you have a scarf with two sides, it helps to bring out the best of both of them.
The fourth way to tie a scarf is called the knot, and it's called that way because it has a simple knot. Here is how you tie it: Throw it around your neck. Take the longer end and form a simple knot. Make sure you go about this high. Now you simply put the other end through the open knot. You tie it up. You adjust it - up and down - so it's tight around your neck. Put it into your topcoat or overcoat. Adjust it a little bit if necessary. And you're good to go! I like it very much for the fall because the knot it not too bulky, lightweight, yet it allows me to wear a scarf and look good.
The fifth way to tie a scarf is called the "count." I like it particularly because it's very elegant and you look like a count. [Laughs]
Alright, throw it over your neck. And, again, like in "the knot," tie a knot. Pull the knot up. And just like the knot, bring in the loose end all the way up. Now what you do: The longer end goes once under and over. Make sure you kind of open up your scarf like so. Now you put it in there, and I like the count because it nicely covers up the 'V' of my coat, so no wind is going to blow in, it warms my chest, and it warms my neck, so I'm covered all around and I look great; That's why I love the count.
