    Couple of examples - standard and this new style. Just wondered where you stand on this. Traditionalist myself. The new way seems a bit...Effeminate?

    I concur......also a traditionalist in this respect........and while we're at it why do people that do wear their scarfs in this new style feel the need to wear them even on warm days?

    Real men don't wear scarves.

    The pictures you posted to demonstrate how to wear them proved that.

    Beckham is the worst possible choice of person to try prove my point wrong :D



    (i'm just jesting with you - I never feel the cold so I have no need for gloves/scarf etc)

    Hehe the umm questioning of scarf tie styles seems a bit... :D

    I'm a scarf guy but I like really long scarves so I'm a 'wrap round your neck 3 times' type.

    And yes, my scarves are fluffy. What of it? ;)

    I'm in the new style camp and proud of it! It does work in keeping you warm. :thumbsup:

    There is a difference though between a normal scarf and a indoor scarf. One is designed to keep you warm outdoors, the other isn't.

    I do have a 'indoor' scarf and its worn like a tradditional tie.

    I only wear a scarf when it's very cold and when I do it new style all the way. Never been one for wearing something that serves no purpose, scarfs when it's warm ? No thanks.
    Guyliner like that bloke is wearing in the first picture is definitely a step to far. That and men wearing ugg boots.

    New style for me.

    Nothing camp or effeminate about wearing a scarf if you are confident in your sexuality.
