    Types of scarves, number 3: sport scarf

    Often made of a thinner, yet cold resistant material, many companies such as UnderArmor, Reebok, and Nike make these winter scarves for winter athletes. These scarves are often made of a blend of materials and provide fairly high resistance to wind, snow, and temperature. Many of these scarves are circular and don’t need to be wrapped. This prevents the scarf from untangling and causing potential injury or death to athletes such as skaters, skiers, and snowboarders. They are usually quite snug and can be pulled up to cover the mouth and nose and sometimes even the ears. In addition to being worn by professional and amateur athletes, these scarves are very popular with parents and children due to their ease of use and limited tangling capabilities making them a safer alternative for active play.

    The history of the scarf, number 4:

    Popularized by Hollywood celebrities in movies and premieres, the scarf was seen on a regular basis draped loosely around the neck of both stars and starlets.

We only have to look at some of the most well-known brands in America such as Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren, and J. Press, to see that even the largest haberdashers have introduced lines of scarves.

    Men’s scarf guide part 1

    The history of the scarf, number 1:

    The scarf certainly has some religious connotations but has also enjoyed use for warmth, cleanliness and of course fashion. While many credits its history to use by the Terracotta soldiers in China, the scarf dates all the way back to ancient Rome where it was originally called a Sudarium, literally translated to mean “sweat cloth”. It was used in Rome for cleanliness, and the cloth scarf was often worn tied to the waist of the man, or loosely wrapped around the neck on warmer days. In the event of a formal affair, the scarf was almost always worn, and various grades of cloth could easily separate the affluent and wealthy members of society from the rest. The scarf was now seen on a daily basis as men would continually wear them out, both for cleanliness, but now, due to the separation of class, as a way to showcase their status or elitism in society.

  • Groomsman attire guide part 5

    Groomsman etiquette, number 5:

    Try to avoid something that could make them embarrassed or feel like they are not the center of attention because that’s their day. Always go a notch down, otherwise, keep it simple.

    Groomsman etiquette, number 6:

    If they do not say anything, wear a suit and communicate, that is really the best thing you can do. If they do not say anything and you cannot reach them, I would suggest going with a simple plain necktie nothing too bold something in silver or black, or a small subtle pattern. Not something in red or a bold color because it stands out too much. I would go with a white pocket square with a white dress shirt and maybe a boutonniere but you should ask them specifically if they want that because traditionally, at weddings, that is something at least the groom wears, maybe the father of the bride, maybe the father of the groom but sometimes, the entire wedding party. So that is definitely something you want to figure out because it can be considered off-putting to just wear a boutonniere when everyone else is not.

    Groomsman etiquette, number 7:

    Do not wear any extraordinary shoes that draw out too much attention. A black pair of cap toe oxfords is probably your best choice. Otherwise, definitely wear over the calf socks because no one would want to see your hairy calves at a wedding day which is usually quite formal so make sure you get over the calf socks that stay up all day even if you walk a lot.

    Groomsman etiquette, number 8:

    To sum it up, your best route is to simply reach out to the bride or the groom so you do not arrive over or underdressed. Keep in mind that by not going for a loud outfit, you are doing the bride and groom a huge favor. It is their day, they should be the center of attention and not steal the spotlight by showing up looking too flashy.

    Bride and groom do’s and don’ts guide, number 3:

    If you have time beforehand, you can take all your groomsman and go to a local barber where you can all get a wet shave and you can all enjoy the day together. It is a bonding experience, it is fun, and everyone is going to be cleanly shaven at the day. If budget is of no concern, either you or the groomsmen, or you take care of it, then you can invite them, for example, to have a custom suit made, maybe an online custom suit but just make it part of an experience and that way you can ensure everyone wears the things you like and it is something that they can also wear after the wedding so it is a good investment for them.

    Groomsman attire guide part 1

    Bride and groom do’s and don’ts guide, number 1:

    Most of the time, the wedding couple will have some specific ideas about what they want. Do provide very specific advice, and suggestions, and demands to your groomsmen. Tell them “I want you to wear this, and I do not want you to wear that.” Because of that, they know exactly what to do and the chances that you are going to be happy with the way it turned out is going to be very high. Think about to what degree you want them to match each other. Are they all supposed to wear exactly the same tuxedo? Or are you may be okay with them just having the same bow tie, the same pocket square, or the same vest? For consistency, it can make sense to get the same accessories. Sometimes you can get, for example, a pocket square so everyone has a white one all the same or you can also give it to them as a grooms gift so it is like 2 in 1.
