Reasons to love winter #21: Scarves. Actually, that should include all winter related accessories. One of the worst things about male fashion that for pretty much two seasons out of the year, there are no accessories for men. Sure, we get some smart satchels and belts but, other than a slew of stupid looking baseball caps, that’s about it.

Then winter hits, and we’re overwhelmed with a plethora of beanies, hats, gloves and scarves in a multitude of colours, designs and fabrics. And I’m in heaven. We’ve already covered this season’s must have gloves on Brandish, now keep reading after the jump for the most desirable scarves on offer.


I love the "blizzard" effect of this thick cable-knit scarf from APC (£40). Comprised of 100% fine wool, this baby is guaranteed to keep your neck frost-bite free.


Pure preppy, this striped Lee scarf with contrasting ends is the ideal accessory to that v-neck jumper and oxford button down shirt combo. Also made from wool, this one is great value at £25.


One for the urban gent, Ted Baker’s herringbone scarf (£40) just oozes style. Would look fantastic with a merino-wool v-neck.



If you want to scrimp on the pennies but not on style, this simple wool/acrylic scarf from Topman (£12) will ensure that you’re looking good without blowing all of your hard-saved Christmas money.


The daddy of scarves, Steve Alan’s stylish and functional neck-piece is filled with goose down which will definitely keep off the chill. At £95 it is a bit pricey though.
