Great coloration, and fabric very luxurious.

+1. Scarf = coat, hat, and gloves, all of which must be removed when entering a building. Ascot = entertaining in one's own home or visiting the home of a close personal friend. Tie = away from home, or departing soon, or just returned.

A shame about the bandwith My thoughts are here; I seem to have been wearing them a lot less of late. That should change now that there's sun in London On the left is my linen summer scarf from Etro:

^^^both of the ones above are quite nice for spring/ summer IMO

Those do look nice. I get spring scarves, but for summer? I once had a linen glenplaid scarf that made sense on cool spring mornings, but the thought of wearing it in even mildly warm weather is not appealing to me. I did see a gauzy cotton one once that seemed like it would have no thermal effect, and it was shown worn very loosely at the neck. But at a certain point, doesn't that creep awfully close to distasteful affectation?

If at the beach or in San Francisco a summer scarf makes a lot of sense......

I see what you mean. Milder climate summer=what I think of as spring.

^ It is hard to believe that the scarf is all linen, the most luxurious linen I have felt, right up there with malo's cashmere and Hermès silk scarves.

^ I like layering, so if it gets hot, off it goes.

I picked up this Hermes Scarf, liked the motiffs, but whether a guy can wear tied as a neckerchief under a white shirt remains to be seen. It might also be used as an ascot. If it ends up being too dandy, my daugher can wear it. Most of the scarves displayed here are simple patterns and fabrics, which I need to try as well. Thanks Pocketsquare guy for your excellent advice, I'll take heed.

PT, I think it is an attrative scarf. It has a lot of detail and color so I suggest wearing it with classic solids, such as khaki pants, solid blue shirt and solid navy jacket. Also try a simplr knot verses an ascot fold and tuck the ends into your open shirt collar. I think that is a good way to start.

Be sure and post picswearing it will you?

Last night I was invited to a party at Neimans in SF for the launch of their new Zegna and Tom Ford departments. All of their Tom Ford models wore shirts without ties, TF sunglasses, v neck sweaters, and jackets (tailored or leather). But, each one wore a pocket square tied (knotted) around their neck. No full scarves or ascots. More of a bandana look.

They were a bit too small but otherwise the look was very stylish and rather sporty. I still think the knotted neckerchief look is the most simple and masculine to pull off for a regular guy. To me, It is just simple and less fussy than a large puff of silk on an ascot.

I wouldn't have thought they'd fit but I tried it and it works, barely, with a 16" square. 12s would be too small.
