Hello,

i have a question, theres always to kick up some ones outfit. now, i have a question, i was looking at hermes silk scarfs and i am deff interested in purchasing one, but for some reason, i dont think a "straight" male would actually wear one, unless its the hypebeast look where you tie it around your kneck.. now i was wondering if its alright for one to wear one? and any ideas or pictures where it looks very STYLISH.. Thanks in advance.

Erm... the velvet jacket sounds Gay/Prince kinds, but I cannot think of how a silk scarf wont either! But pray why would u need to insist the scarf be silk ?

In all seriousness - I think it depends on the scarf. I have a black silk/cashmere scarf I snagged in Turkey and it's subdued enough that it doesn't look too flamboyant except to those who will think I'm flaming already.

This confuses me:
hypebeast look where you tie it around your kneck
Where do you tie your scarves??

I have a McQueen scarf, I'll try to post a pic later.

I think we all know it probably won't happen but it's nice to say.

I used to wear silk scarves quite a bit, in a pretty lol phase of my life that did, in fact, include a great deal of velvet.

I have a friend who does exactly that. He is utterly flaming.

You can fold it and tie it around your neck tucked into your shirt so it looks like an ascot. I think both Cary Grant and Fred Astaire were fond of this. At least one author on such matters considers a scarf so worn incomparably more elegant than a "regular" pre-fabricated ascot, which he regarded as cheesy--on the order of pre-tied bowties. I recently got some cotton scarves that I sometimes wear in this fashion.

However, I don't exactly see an Hermes silk scarf as "streetwear," however it's worn!

Given that tattered cotton scarves are in, I'd be interested to see a tattered silk scarf.
