There are countless articles out there that teach you how to tie your scarf but not many will actually tell you other things that are important for men wearing scarves. That is why we should highlight those things. A man scarf is normally 70 inches in length and 10 inches in width. In most situations they are made out of a patterned or a solid cut cloth that is designed to wrap right around necks. Scarfs are rectangle fabric pieces but they are so much more than just that.

Wearing The Scarf In A Manly Way

It is not at all difficult to wear scarfs. You can even wear one with items that do not seem fashionable. This is what you have to understand. All that you have to do is follow the right rules. At the same time, you should realize the fact that scarfs have been used by men for around 2000 years now. While some will tell you that the scarfs are not manly, the truth is that wearing them right can be incredibly manly. All that you have to do is look at world renowned soldiers and you will see many scarfs that were used in the past as a sign of masculinity.

Why Wear Scarfs?

This is the very first thing that you have to realize. We can say that there are 2 distinct reasons why you would wear a scarf as a man:

  • Function

A scarf will do a really great job at protecting your neck. If you choose one that is made out of wolf and that is thick, the neck will remain warm no matter how cold the weather is. At the same time, if you choose one that is thin and made out of suitable materials, you can wear the scarf even in the desert to protect the neck from sand and sun rays.

  • Flair

Scarves are simply great in the event that you want to add some style. That is especially the case when introducing colors to an outfit that is bland. The only thing that you have to remember is that functionality should never be compromised. If you achieve this, the scarf will add so much flair to your outfits. However, you do want to make sure that the scarf is added to an outfit that is relatively simple.

Choosing Scarf Build Type

Choosing your scarf is difficult, especially for a man. There are various different styles that exist and most men do not have the patience of learning them. In order to help you, here are the facts that should be considered:

  • Length & Width – the width should be up to 14 inches and the length should be between 50 and 90 inches.
  • Material – you want to choose a material that is suitable for the time when you will wear it and the weather in the region. As an example, winter scarves should be made out of napped fabrics that present soft surfaces.

The Sex Of The Scarf

We have to realize that most of the scarves are not actually made for the man. In fact, just a few models are. You want to be sure that you consider the following facts in order to be sure that the scarf is meant for a man:

  • Avoid the scarves that have animal prints or really strong colors.
  • Avoid everything with scarf pins.
  • Avoid large knitted scarves.
  • Avoid those with excessive fringes.
  • Avoid scarves with elaborately beaded scarves.
