    Hi everyone,

    I was in Portugal for Christmas break (I'm originally from there) and I got a scarf thing for Christmas. Over there they use it pretty much with almost anything. So today I decided to try it for the first time in America.... I used it with a black t-shirt and some dark blue distressed jeans. Needless to say I showed one of my girl-friend's and she called me a "f**" so....what do you guys think?

    Please be honest, I'm very confident in my sexuality! hahaha

    Not cold enough for a jacket = Not cold enough for a scarf.

    Wearing a scarf and a t shirt is so incongruent. It's akin to wearing winter boots at the beach. Don't do it.

    Heavy wool scarf with a heavy wool coat in cold weather. Otherwise, leave it at home.

    +1

    (I do however like the pattern and color of the scarf though)

    Depends on the scarf. The one Beckham is wearing is very thin, and looks good without a jacket.

    Wearing a scarf tied in that fashion will make anyone look like a stupid hipster. Tie it like a normal person and it might look okay (though not with just a t-shirt).

    Surprised no Euro members have chimed in the eurotypical "only American man afraid of scarf" answer.
