We have always thought neckerchiefs are really cool and a necessity for any man’s wardrobe, so we have created a selection of versatile paisleys and contemporary polkadots, and we’re pretty excited about it!
The neckerchief originally began as a functional item, more than fashion piece associated with farm labourers, sailors and cowboys. They are now primarily associated with dapperly dressed chaps and urban fashion trends. The best things about neckerchiefs are: they are easy to wear; you just fold diagonally and roll to achieve desired shape, they soften the neck where an open collar can look bare, they’re multi-seasonal; you can wear them any time of year (they’re especially good for the summer evening chill) and finally they break up your look; sometimes a small piece of pattern is best as it’s not an over statement but still adds a dash of detail.
So basically neckerchiefs are win/win, they look great with literally anything, so whatever your style there’s no doubt they’ll work! We like wearing ours with casual denim and workwear corduroy which is more traditional but they look excellent with crisp summer suits or striped sweats too.
To help you incorporate neckerchiefs into your life we have summarised the 5 best ways to wear a neckerchief, so just take your pick and enjoy!
1. The Smarter Style
For this look tie the neckerchief at the back and keep the fabric at the front like a cravat, it shows off the print really well and sits nicely in the neck of a shirt.
2. The Cool Kid
This version is similar to no.1 but you wear the knot right at the front with longer tie ends, it’s perfect with a layered look and brings a ‘too-cool-for-school’ edge to any outfit.
3. The Sneak Peek
To achieve this Cary Grant style wear flat against the neck, tucked in to any shirt or top, it’s a subtle way of styling your neckerchief whilst adding a splash of pattern.
4. The Urban Vibe
For this effect roll the neckerchief from end to end again, but tighter and slimmer to make a small knot. Wear over your shirt or shacket as a statement accessory.
5. The Preppy Look
This is the most popular way to style a neckerchief and our personal fave of all the looks. Fold it corner to corner and wear it on the side, the jaunty casual styling works a treat!
