Scarf Snarf

In the most recent months, I have left the complaining to others more willing to post often and to call people mean names. 'Cept this one really bothers me enough to voice an opinion.


Everyone and their mother knows this guy as that guy.

But he's most certainly not the only that guy. People less "avant-garde" (is that really what he calls his style of body adornment?) than Danny-Dan-The-Style-Man commit the same infraction. I have seen look-books and WIWT blogs commit this off-beat method of wearing a scarf.

Wearing a scarf without any sort of coat is not cheddar. The look is unfinished and results in a bizarre neck-tumor silhouette. The scarf is meant to fill the space between the overcoat lapels and a thin scarf also looks fine stuffed in the neck space of a wool suit, sportcoat, or blazer. But wearing a scarf without any sort of coat gives no set boundaries to be filled. It's like wearing a condom around the house.

While I'm not going to rip a scarf off of a non-coat wearing stranger when I see one, I would take note of this before you step outside deciding to wear a giant scarf over a shirt. You will look unfinished if you do so. If that's what you want? Fine.
