Is a scarf the most manly thing a guy can wear? No. Is it awesomely functional and able to add a pop of color to a dreary winter? Absolutely. Whether it’s wool, cotton, or fleece, scarves are a necessity in the cold weather. Continuing our Winter Wear Series, we bring you the 3 essential scarves of winter.
A good wool scarf will breathe well while still keeping your neck warm. In recent years, lambswool has become more refined to give a perfect amount of softness rather than scratchiness. Instead of the traditional solid color scarf, try a pattern like this Polo Ralph Lauren Black Camo Scarf from Macys ($58). This is a scarf that can add something interesting to an otherwise drab winter look.
A fleece scarf gives needed warmth with a notably casual look. It works perfectly under a vest, while shoveling snow, or when having a drink slope-side while everyone else skis. Lands End, the creators of all things warm, offers a 6 foot long “Polartec Aircore 200” Scarf ($19). This lint, pet hair, and shock resistant scarf is constructed using a special knit that traps more air for warmth. If that doesn’t sound high tech (and warm), I don’t know what does. The extra length allows you to wrap it around as many times as you need to keep old man winter at bay.
Not everywhere is as cold in December as it is here in Boston. When it’s regularly below freezing, it’s time to go with a cotton scarf. Cotton provides just the right amount of warmth without making you sweaty – perfect for a big guy. Check out this super soft cotton scarf from Venice California’s Late Sunday Afternoon. We spotted the brand earlier this year at American Field, and fell in love with their made in the U.S.A. products and designs.
Thanks Good To know!! My Son who is 15, 6ft tall at 300lbs doesn't like to go shopping cause of all the trouble we have finding him clothes. Even going shoe shopping is a chore. I buy his shoes online and pray they fit right, cause where I live the biggest shoe size any store carries is a 13. I'm glad he is not picky and doesn't care about named brand clothing.
@debrod75 If there's anything we can do to help you find your Son clothes, don't hesitate to reach out!
Target has almost nothing to fit us Plus Sized guys! I hate having to go to Walmart - but they have clothes that fit!
I'd volunteer! I'm 6'2 390 I'm a truly plus sized man! I'd be up for the challenge \U0001f60c\U0001f60a
Agreed, Gary! Our hope is that companies will see these things and feature more models of a variety of sizes.
You're right Jakob Gustav Felts, and it's something Zach touches on in the article. It's a first step, and before this, there wasn't ANYTHING in the way of male size diversity to be found there. It's our job to spotlight things like this and show these companies that we want even more models of a variety of sizes to be featured on their site and in their advertising!
I'm glad Target is making the effort, but the fact of the matter is, most guys looking for plus sized clothing don't have the slender build that he does. -_-
