What's your favorite way to tie a scarf?

What's your favorite way to tie a scarf? I was curious and Googled it, but kept getting pages for women.

The ascot way.

I would show you if you were here, but I can't possibly explain.

one of two ways: either the Ascot way; or double it over, and pass the ends through the "u" formed when you doubled the ends.

cross over, for me is best. But sometimes I set one part of the scarf, straight down, then do a sideways cross over, with what's left. Looks a little jazzier, under certain outerwear.

I developed my own technique, which attracts positive comments, which is similar to doing a half-knot tie.

*Edit* I just ran a search on how to tie an Ascot and it's exactly the same as my method! I am lonely in my dress interest so am left to my own devices.

Most of the time I don't need to tie the scarf as it's either not that cold or I'm not walking that far. I kind of like the nonchalence of leaving it undone. Call me shallow.

If it's particularly cold or I'm walking somewhere far away, I will double up the scarf and thread the loose ends through the U.

This is the so-called Hoxton knot by the less charitable commentators due to its frequency amongst the young uber-trendy dotcom boom urbanites that populated that area of London in vast numbers a few years back. Despite that association, I still like the look. And it's quite warm.

Doesn't look right with football scarves, as I have noticed some in Melbourne trying lately.

I also like the "pass the ends through the U" method





The photos are from The Satorialist during Feb 2006. During that month, he has alot of pictures that included scarves.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find that their scarf gets too short when this is done? Mine are about 60"; is that too short?

I did a FIH one time. It actually isn't too bad. My usual go-to is to wrap around my neck and flip 1/2 of it back so there's fringe on back and front. I guess it's not really a "tie"

Isadora Duncan often wore scarves which trailed behind her, and this caused her death in a freak accident in Nice, France. She was killed at the age of 49 when her scarf caught in the open-spoked wheel of her friend Benoît Falchetto's Amilcar automobile, in which she was a passenger. As the driver sped off, the long cloth wrapped around the vehicle's axle. Duncan was yanked violently from the car and dragged for several yards before the driver realized what had happened. She died almost instantly from a broken neck. The tragedy gave rise to Gertrude Stein's mordant remark that "affectations can be dangerous."

Most of my scarves are in the 72"-78" range.
