    I'm looking for a scarf (or two) to wear with a charcoal suit and overcoat (Zegna). Shirt either plain white or blue and plain tie probablly.

    I'm looking for the tie and scarf to give some zing to an otherwise sombre colour scheme but nothing over the top as it's a business/work context.


    Here's some I'm pondering:

    http://shoponline.drakes-london.com/...t%20scarf.aspx

    Althoug I must say, quite expensive, so I'm still looking around, it would be best max 100€.

    I don't know whether it's your style or not, but I had the same 'problem' and went for an Alexander McQueen bronze/copper paisley scarf. FWIW, I paid 115€ (off from 290€) at The Mall near Florence.

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't read it's for business!

    FIH (http://www.fourinhand.com) has many scarves. See this one for example for $60.... http://www.fourinhand.com/Product.as...t=FH80F-529-01 [​IMG]
    Looks good, but sadly I'm in europe [​IMG] Have looked in Yoox to but the cheaper one's look crap and the good looking ones cost a lot (brand mark up). Edit: actually that looks great, where can I get a similar one over here in euroland?

    Sadly, again, there's custom's charges, delays and all sorts of hassles with orders coming outside of the EU. Otherwise we would be doing business :)

    One option is the deep red cable knit from Howard Yount that can be seen here: http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...knit-scarf-red I received mine last week and it's a great shade of Burgundy red and quite thick. I look forward to wearing it on extra cold days. I imagine it would go perfectly with a charcoal coat adding a nice pop in a classic style.

    The one outside of Pescara for sure but I guess the other two in Italy carry basically the same stock.
