    I noticed that Combo in This is England movie is wearing some kind of scarf under his crombie:

    Just need to ask, how these silk scarves keep you in warm, e.g. in comparison to the lambswool/merino scarves?

    Yes if they arn't patch pockets a ticket pocket is essential Roy.

    I have seen the football badge on a few present day Skinheads on Crombies and Blazers. When i was a lad i remember the Skinheads like my brother and my brother in law had football crests on their crombies and blazers. My Brother who's a Leeds supporter (where that came from i have no idea) still wears an old leeds crest on one of his crombies. It must be a more Nothern thing as it was very popular up here in Northampton and above us.

    I don't even relate those people as Skinheads. Just scruffy punks IMO.

    The silk scarves do keep you suprisingly warm. Some of them have wool one side silk the other too. So they are warm anyway. But the pure silk ones are warn too. You wouldn't think so but they are, plus they look great too.

    agree,surprisingly warm. only thing for me is the pure silk ones like to slide downwards off my neck. I thought it was maybe a poor wrapping technique on my part but others have said same....if anyone knows of a superior way to wrap it so it stays put would love to hear. I do have one of those half silk half wool, and that works much better for staying in place, but I like the lightness of the pure silk. If it gets warm (indoors) it's easy to stuff in a pocket for safekeeping

    Just had a thought Alan, When you said a patch i assumed you meant a cloth badge like Soldiers often wear Regimental badges sewn on the top pocket of their blazers, We wore little metal badges of our football club on our Crombie or Harrington. Thats the only badges i saw worn.

    And a hanky up his sleeve...


    Jason - To stop a silk scarf from slipping down, I've read on a Mod site that if you tie your scarf like you would a tie, but instead of finishing with the end through the loop, just tuck it over the top - that works. (Instead of going round once, try two or three times) :)

    I have sometimes used a tie stud or descreet pin badge to stop my scarf from slipping.

    I like Harrysgame's idea of a tie stud though.
