Men’s scarf guide part 5

Scarf materials, number 2: polyester

The least admirable material possibly of all time, while there are both natural and synthetic forms of polyester, in most cases, during the manufacturing of clothing, it is the synthetic variant being predominantly used. Despite polyester being viewed as an inferior material to that of natural woven fibers like cotton and wool, the polyester is woven scarves or polyblend scarves do have some exceptional qualities often incapable of being achieved when using an all natural fiber. Polyester scarves benefit from superior resistance to inclement weather with a far greater success rate when it comes to repelling water, wind, and snow. In addition, they offer exceptional wrinkle resistance, can be construed as more durable than many or most of their counterparts and offer high color retention, resulting in the scarf lasting much longer under the extreme elements. It is for these reasons in particular that polyester and poly-blend scarves are incredibly popular with children and professional athletes. In some instances, since polyester is considered a less elegant material, it is often blended with natural fibers which provide the polyester-based scarf with other visual and textural properties normally not found with synthetic polyester.


Just as a 100% polyester bow tie is easy to spot in comparison to a silk bow tie, a scarf made exclusively of polyester is just as easy to differentiate from a silk scarf. By blending the polyester with silk, cotton or other natural fibers, you can obtain what is often called “China Silk”.

Scarf materials, number 3: jersey

Jersey is most often used in the production of feminine scarves as its conducive to embellishments, rather than just prints or textures. It holds sequins, beads, and other externally sewn embellishments quite well as it is a fairly thin and stretchy cotton. Despite being used predominantly for women’s apparel, it has recently and historically been used by men, especially in warmer Middle East climates and can often be seen on some middle eastern members of the royal family.
