10 best men’s scarves that keep you warm and look good : The trusty scarf was used to indicate a soldier’s rank in the Chinese military way back when.

Transition from slick, lightweight scarves in autumn to thick woolly knitted numbers in the winter.
Although a scarf isn’t just a practical winterwear item. If chosen well, it can, as well as keeping you snug, add pizzazz to an otherwise lacklustre outfit.

How does a man wear a winter scarf?
Drape the scarf around your neck, making one end longer than the other. Take the long end of the scarf and loop it once around your neck. Now take the same end and tuck it through the loop you just formed. Grab the other side of the scarf and tuck it through the loop as well to tie the knot.
