    So winter is just around the corner. I'm looking to buy a new scarf (or scarves) for the winter. Recommend me some good ideas or post pics of what you'll be wearing.

    Thanks!

    I picked up a wool plaid scarf a few days ago at some rundown thrift shop.

    It's a bit itchy, but super warm. I recommend checking your local vintage/thrift stores.

    Let's just say Schneider now and get it out of the way.

    Hmm I didn't think of that. How does it look? I'm aiming for style as well as functionality. I'm sure a thrift shop would save me a few hundred dollars over a Burberry scarf LOL.


    I'm guessing these are high-end scarves? I've never purchased an "expensive" scarf before, so I'm kind of new to the game. I'm looking for something stylish yet functional. I checked out the Burberry scarves which are around $300+.

    Ok I just did a little research -- I presume you're referring to Stephan Schneider scarves? They look very nice and you have me interested. So where can I get them? I couldn't find a retail website?

    I'm in NYC if that helps. Thanks.

    Plus one on this. I picked up two SS scarves for the winter from South Willard in LA. Really nice pieces.

    I don't live in NYC, but I think Opening Ceremony stocked them last year? Don't quote me on this.

    Thanks so much! Just checked the website and they have them. So are these scarves just meant to be worn casually with a sweater or can they be worn over a winter coat as well such as a pea coat?

    Thanks again.

    I've gotten some great scarves from sierra trading post from johnstons of elgin.

    I bought one for myself in a semi-heavy merino that is quite nice and I use it all of the time in the winter.

    I bought another one as a gift for an ex-girlfriend in a cashmere plaid and thought it was great (although I am pretty sure she lost it and didn't want to tell me...because after a certain point, I never saw it again)

    I second the recommendation on johnstons of elgin- very nice scarves at fair prices.

    I picked up a couple of Inerallan hand knits that I'm looking forward to wearing when it gets really cold.
