I apologise for my double chin. It's possibly why I prefer the "I don't show my head on camera" content that has been emerging on Instagram etc. Mostly I like it because it is men who are trying to generate dialogue about the "menswear" and the "details" rather than to discuss whether the subject was blessed with Dorian Gray good looks or the other side of the coin, what Australian men refer to as 'a head like a bruised choko' . A choko being chayote which is native to Central America. I have never in my life come across a bruised one but I might add that a fresh one seems bad enough.
Below you will see an example of our new silk scarves. One side of this reverso is silk grenadine from a mill in Como in a purply mid blue, the other is jersey in navy. The silk is designed to be wrapped around the neck and to be tucked into the jacket. It is supposed to cover the chest and stomach area only - with the scarf predominantly protecting from the neck to the top button of your jacket. It's for when you are wearing a jacket but don't want to wear a pullover underneath. The fabric of your shirt is not enough to keep you warm.
More importantly, this scarf makes you look good. It doesn't drape out of the bottom of your jacket. It isn't overly large and cumbersome. It is the ideal scarf for Sydney, enough to keep you warm on even the coolest nights but not so that you feel weighed down by it's presence. It is ideal for layering, it is ideal to compliment your ensemble between jacket and shirt. In the instance below I am wearing a high collar stand Moth of Sydney long sleeve t-shirt, the new scarf and an old Corneliani jacket which has an in-built vest.
With just these garments on I can brave the coldest days of Sydney's winter. So, perhaps it's not enough for New York or London, but if you live in a city like Sydney it will keep you warm in a relaxed layered way.
