How To Tie 10 Scarf Knots For Men | Men’s Scarves Tying Tutorial | Wear Scarfs Video


The scarf is a fantastic cold weather accessory
being both stylish and functional. It’s a classic menswear piece with a strong
masculine history behind it. One hundred years ago when open cockpits were
standard, pilots wore a silk scarf around the neck to keep them warm and to prevent
chaffing. For thousands of years militaries have used
scarves to differentiate soldiers from what battalion and regiment they belong to, to
what specific duties they had in combat. Today, wool, cashmere, and even synthetic
materials scarves are primarily used for their ability to insulate the neck keep it warm
while providing freedom of movement. Scarves come in a variety of lengths. Shorter scarves are about 50 to 60 inches
long, standard length scarves are about 70 inches long, and extra long scarves are about
82 inches long. Scarf widths are usually about 6 inches for
men. If it’s closer to 10 inches, it’s most likely
a woman’s scarf. In today’s video, we’re going to look at ten
manly ways to tie a scarf. The first way to wear a scarf is the Drape. The Drape leans more towards style rather
than function as it’s a great way to add a dash of color to your drab overcoat and draw
attention to your face. The Drape is best for when the weather is
cool, but not necessarily cold. As the name implies, just drape the scarf
over your neck. Equal lengths on each side and you’re good
to go. The Drape works best with short to regular
length scarves. The second way to wear a scarf is the Once
Around. Once Around provides more warmth around the
neck than the Drape, and so can be worn in colder weather. Start by draping the scarf over your neck
making one end longer than the other. Take the long end and bring it around your
neck and you’re done. The ends of the scarf can either be equal
length or a bit uneven, it’s really up to wearer’s preference. The third way to wear a scarf is the Over
Hand. The Over Hand scarf knot is very simple to
tie. It looks clean and functional and provides
good protection to the neck in cool weather. To get started, drape the scarf over your
neck making one end longer than the other. Take the long end, cross it over the short
end and then bring it under and through the opening near your neck. Pull on both ends to tie in the knot until
you’re satisfied with the look. I think the scarf looks great whenever one
end is slightly longer than the other. The next scarf knot we’re going to talk about
is the Reverse Drape. This is a great option for colder weather
as it provides a lot of protection to the neck. Drape the scarf over your neck making sure
both ends are about equal length. Now, take one end of the scarf and bring it
across your neck and over the opposite shoulder. Then, do the same with the other side. Adjust around your neck if necessary and you’re
done. Next method of tying scarf is the Parisian
Knot, a very classy looking scarf knot. It provides great warmth to the neck and is
an awesome choice in colder weather. Fold your scarf in half widthwise, then fold
it in half again lengthwise. Drape it over your neck and then bring the
loose end through the hole formed by the folded end. Tighten the scarf around your neck and you’re
ready to go. This scarf knot works best with longer scarves. Now, a fun method to tie your scarf is the
Fake Knot. The Fake Knot is a more complicated knot to
tie, but it’s a great colder weather option that looks sharp with either casual jacket
or a formal overcoat. First, drape the scarf over your neck making
one end longer than the other. Take the long end, bring it behind and around
itself to form a loop, then take the end down and through the loop. Grab the other end of the scarf and bring
it down and through the loop as well. Work the knot up to your neck by gently pulling
on each end while sliding the knot up. The next scarf tying method is the Reverse
Drape Tuck. Not too commonly seen, this scarf knot works
best with longer scarves. Drape the scarf first over your neck making
one end longer than the other, then take the long end 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 and tuck it through the
loop as well and adjust if necessary. The eighth method I’m going to talk about
today to wear a scarf is the Reverse Drape Cross. Very similar to the Reverse Drape Tuck, this
knot works great for longer scarves. Drape the scarf over your neck and make one
end longer than the other. Take the long end and bring it up and around
your neck. Now, cross the long end over the other end
and bring it up and through the opening you just formed. Pull on the end to tie if needed and you’re
done. The next scarf tying method we’re going to
discuss is the Four in Hand. The Four in Hand is another great option for
long scarves. This knot protects the neck very well and
is perfect for freezing weather. Because of the many fold, this knot is also
one of the more intricate-looking scarf knots. Like the Parisian Knot, start by folding the
scarf in half lengthwise and widthwise and then, drape it over your neck. Take one of the loose ends and pull it through
the loop formed by the folded end. Now, twist the loop, then pull the other end
through the loop. Continue to adjust the knot until it’s sitting
neatly around your neck. The final scarf tying method I’m going to
discuss today is the Twice Around. The Twice Around is a great choice for freezing
weather. Next to the Four in Hand, it’s one of the
warmest methods out there to wear a scarf, but it’s very simple to tie. Again, it works best if you’re using a longer
scarf. Start off by draping the scarf over your neck. Make one end much longer than the other. Now, take the long end and wrap it around
your neck. Then, repeat again and bring it around your
neck a second time. Adjust if needed to completely cover your
neck and you’re all set for whatever the winter weather has in store for you. That’s it, gentlemen, ten masculine ways to
tie a scarf that will keep your neck warm when the weather outside turns cold. Now, be sure to check out the support article
