How does a man tie a scarf?

A simple question -- but one that has become more complex as the scarf itself has become more associated with women than men over the last 50 years.

This has led to a shift in how this classic men's accessory is viewed.

That's unfortunate.

The scarf is a classic, masculine piece of menswear that serves the functional purpose of protecting the neck.

In most cases -- it keeps our necks warm. But the silk scarf was originally used to protect a pilots neck from chaffing when open cockpits were the rule. They have also been used for centuries by those living in desert areas to protect from dust and the sun.

Well, in the below chart I give you 11 techniques -- enjoy!
