    I am looking for a long scarf.... Much longer than the average length, probably in a navy blue or something basic in terms of pattern. Most scarves are way too short -- I am looking for super-long length.

    I got a navy scarf from Burberry last year that's really long, probably twice as long as their regular scarfs. It's wider and thicker than their other scarfs too. It has a subtle black and navy pattern. It's made of cashmere. I love it, can't wait for it to turn colder to use it.

    It wasn't available online. I got it at the Burberry store on Long Island, and they only had one.

    PC's scarfs are really long. I don't know if their price tag is what you had in mind though.

    Longer than 72".... Maybe around 100" or longer. Basically, I want to be able to fold the scarf over once (so it is doubled), put it over my neck, and tuck the open double end on one side through the loop on the other side with enough length remaining to at least hit around my navel or even waist.

    Yup. That is Long...

    Have you ever seen anything like that?

    I've seen Dior Homme scarves on Yoox before that measured, apparently, 96". Dunno if there are any now, though. I always assumed they were from that Fall collection in... what, 04? The one with the really, really long scarves and the gold boots. I've been looking for a cheaper alternative, so if I find any non-Dior scarves that are that long, I'll post it here.

    Those were too thick to be folded though so they wouldn't resolve Montecristos's problem. I'd say sewing two identical scarves together might be your best choice.

    I have some really long ones from Missoni. Not sure if they are 100" but at least one is 80"+. Most of their designs are ridiculous, but they always have at least one piece that can take an outfit up a couple notches.

    Yoox provides measurments on their scarves and I recall seeing some ultra long ones, so a search there may bear fruit.

    And they always refer to scarf length as "width", which trips me out. I'm always thinking, "wait, are they sure that's not just a blanket?"

    Heh.

    Though, on that note, if you have a sewing machine and some friends who also want scarves, milsurp blankets can make nifty scarves.
