    Does anyone know a good place online for such for a modest price of £40 or £50?

    I got a great fine herringbone one last year from Charles Tyrwhitt but alas they can't get it again this year... and I lost it on a rather hectic night out.

    Marks and Spencer do a reasonabllllle quality one for the money but it is too dark a grey (although I have the claret one)

    Does anyone know what the quality and thickness is like on Brook Taverner scarves? The grey looks nice, but lambswool may give too thick of a scarf

    Uniqlo +J should have what you are looking for.

    I'm saving up for this one:

    on the grounds that I already have a couple scarves, so the next one should be so good I can rid myself of my existing ones.

    More "stuff" isn't what I need.

    Or perhaps to a small, niche store like "A Suitable Wardrobe Shop" for a very nice one, cashmere on one side, ancient madder on the other:

    Though I wish it were blue, not green. Just have to wait on this one.

    These look excellent, thank you!

    t

    + J don't have the colour I'm after I think, but I was not aware of +J, some fantastic coats... I can't wait to visit the store in London


    I might give this a go too, though it is a lot of money at the moment

    The Begg ones I mentioned are really nice, and they're longer too. I would get the Johnston one from STP myself if it were longer. Make sure you get the length you want.
