I've not been a frequent scarf wearer but this season have acquired two nicer ones, a Donegal herringbone tweed and a Drake's multicolored plaid lambswool from Ben Silver. Both are great and really add an amazing amount of visual interest for the outlay. (Will try to post a pic of them later.)
Alan: was that the Silver scarf on their website? A sort of camel avec orange, blue, & maybe yellow? If so, saw it but by time I got around to buying it, 'twas gone. Brillant colors I thought...

So I am wondering this... I have gotten requests for this kind of item, I have seen them around but usually with a very ugly printed silk. Is there a market or interest, for Silk on one side and a Cashmere on the other?  Essentially two layers, one side a silk (smooth of course) and the other cashmere? If so a basic solid cashemre? I am seriousely considering this for the next winter season A/I 2005. JJF These can be handsome, and are popular among smartly dressed businessmen here in Boston.  Personally, I find it a bit aging for some reason, but at 46 I've decided I'm too young to adopt it.
Used to be found at Peck & Peck and B. Altman. I was always thought the style was for the ladies though.

(Fabienne @ 06 Jan. 2005, 11:50) I tend to favor silk, as cashmere may be slightly irritating against bare skin.

This kind of scarve, silk on one side, cashmere on the reverse, I have seen in Hong Kong. The silk has several interesting traditional Chinese pattern, but the color selection is meager. Going back in two weeks for Chinese New Year and will check back here then.

Here they are. I noticed I said the tweed was herringbone above. Obviously it's a houndstooth.

I saw a Dunhill cashmere scarves, knitted medium grey with black when you open the stitching. Not dressy but very thick and warm. It is at 141 euros instead of 290 euros. Does it sound like a good price for you? Knitted cashmere is not easy to find, why?
