What is the history of the men's scarf?

  • The scarf, knight's shield

The first scarves were actually scarves of sorts, used by knights in the Middle Ages to identify the different members of the army corps, but also to protect themselves. The knight's scarf was used to mop up blood and sweat from wounds, and to protect against wind and sandstorms. Over time, knights used the scarf less and less for utilitarian purposes, but it retained its symbolic value, particularly during voyages and conquests.

Thescarf also became a frequent gift from soldiers' wives as a symbol of love and loyalty, as a memento of the family, home and children they kept close to them during battle.

Soldiers recognize each other on the battlefield, as well as their enemies, and the scarf symbolizes belonging to a specific troop, region, country or empire. Later, the scarf became a symbol dedicated to pilgrims, particularly during the Crusades in the 14th century.

Later, the scarf was democratized, becoming a romantic fashion accessory, favored by poets, writers and celebrities and contributing to their popularity, but also worn by the nobility as a sign of wealth and power.

  • The scarf, a glamorous dandy accessory

In the 60s, dandy men wore silk scarves tied around their necks in their suit pockets to add a bohemian, glamorous touch to their outfits. The scarf is the ideal winter accessory to add a touch of refinement and chic to your look, finishing off your outfit, often with colorful patterns, and adding relief and structure to your outfit, especially if you're wearing basics. Over the years, fashion designers have created numerous models, featuring soft, silky materials such as cashmere or silk, and more classic, plain wool scarves.

Indispensable with the mid-season winds, the scarf comes to warm you up during the cool days and evenings of autumn, over your favorite wool coat, with a pretty beanie and you're protected during these rough and sometimes icy seasons! While the scarf is above all a useful fashion accessory, we don't neglect the importance of personal style and the harmony of your outfit. The snood, a scarf that's already rolled up, is very practical for those hurried winter mornings!

How to choose a scarf for men?

The scarf you choose must be consistent with the other items of clothing in your men's outfit: material, length, color, pattern or plain, your winter outfit must above all be coherent. Generally speaking, an accessory should complement your outfit, without drowning it out, and should enhance your complexion. For matte and tanned skin tones, highlight your tanned skin with a rust, ochre or terracotta-colored scarf. For cooler complexions, or for men with blond, red or chatay hair, choose a knitted scarf in navy blue, brown or even pink-gold for those who like original pieces.

Bags, scarves, hats and caps are all details that add real value to your look.

Accessories give you the opportunity to stand out from the crowd, to express your difference, and this can work in your favor, especially on special occasions: a job interview for an internship, a romantic date, a cocktail party, a business dinner.

From the classic fringed scarf to the ultra-functional and practical snood, from ultra-cozy soft wool to classic cotton, smooth or ribbed, this fashion accessory can be used and abused to create the perfect winter outfit.

Our collection of men's scarves and snoods offers all this and more: mix your wide knit scarf with a short zipped jacket or a long camel wool coat, light blue regular or bootcut jeans and a pair of Chelsea boots for a modern, trendy and masculine look. For an autumn stroll, opt for a mottled gray scarf, to be worn with comfortable black fleece joggers or beige cargo joggerpants, a short velvet parka and a pair of brown leather ankle boots.
