What's right and wrong with this scarf?

    The scarf is not attractive to me, I am sorry. The pattern looks like something I usually in kitchens. Try searching for another style.

    It's fine, but you could do better. I think a more colorful one would be nicer. If you really want to get a black and white one, however, maybe just get a glen plaid. They're everywhere for cheap.

    Wrong

    Pattern is droll.
    Looks too thin to actually be of any use keeping you warm.

    Right

    Now that you mentioned it, it does remind one of the pants worn by kitchen staff. Keep looking, I say.

    It's not too bad, classic pattern. More a show scarf though so not totally warm. ANyone bought much from Oliver Brown, what are they like for suits? Their website needs to give fuller desciptions of their goods.

    I agree completely with your comment about lack of adequate description in Oliver Brown website which is the same as the catalog. That reminds me that I must send them an Email to ask for more details, which the salesperson on the phone recommended I do when I asked her for measurements, etc. Last week when I phoned the scarf was out of stock. I'm surprised at your judgment that the scarf is more show and not warm. I've considered abanodining my scarf project and buy a merino wool knitted jacket from Erfolg knitted clothes, which aside from the wool are completely manufactured in Switzerland.

    I have a suit in that almost exact pattern so I'd wear it with it for show.

    Aside from that...? Seems a bit too flashy for me

    What about these scarves?i personally like them...

    It's actually a little bit expensive but i got a polo scarf like this from Luxembourg for 60 euro,so you can search the internet and find something nice.I was just showing the style i like.


    That's very kind of you to take the trouble to show me alternatives. I've looked at both just now and would like to comment that these bring the question of material to mind. One is cotton, nevertheless dry cleaning is specified. The other cashmere. Interesting you like plaid. If you check the scarf I proposed as object of criticism, its surface differs from those of your alternatives and its of merino wool (I believe). I regret i didn't buy the Lanvin pearl knit scarf my girlfriend pointed out to me displayed this winter season which now is sold out.

    I might very well just buy and wear a merino wool knitted jacket with a collar, etc.

    Don't give up hope so easily. http://www.fourinhand.com/catalog.asp?dept=1020 http://www.customshirt1.com/AlexBegg...shmere_Scarves
    Thanks very much for your reference to other sources. I was not aware of Four in Hand. The website is quite expansive. They must have a huge warehouse. I shall take some time to look at everything there, but the scarves seem huge! What do you think is the right size for a scarf? The other website is known to me because I was a member of Mr. G.'s website where I was banned after I posted a thread about Italian socks sold by A.K., whom I respect as an expert in his field. Mr. K. had just completely redesigned Mr. G.'s website when I posted my thread. My thread compared three sock sellers, including Mr. K's. Mr. K. sells M. socks made in Italy. In my thread I questioned if it makes sense for a customer in Europe to buy Italian socks from Mr.K.. M. didn't answer my Emails of inquiry about European outlets for ceertain of their products which Mr. K. offers from Long Island. An order of Italian socks for a customer in Europe means double transportation across the Atlantic, which I consider detrimental to the environment and simple nonsense! Mr. K. refused to answer my question if he was the person who removed my thread and banned me - he is also moderator at that website. Mr. K. answered he would only speak to Mr. G. on my behalf to reinstate my membership if I would stop badgering the members! Although Mr. K. ignored my protest against his false characterisation of my participation there as well as my questions, he continues to send me Email announcements of his website, to which I reply that I'm waiting for his effort to reinstate me as member.
