so nice and so easy!
February 26, 2010 at 1:16 pm
That's a superb idea, bet it's knot as easy as it looks though…!
February 26, 2010 at 1:18 pm
Hu, interesting ! Good idea, and thanks for sharing !
Great blog Scott. You should come to Buenos Aires, Argentina to shoot style.
February 26, 2010 at 1:21 pm
wow! so simple, i thought it would be more complex. this is fantastic, thx for the videohttp://vodkacaviardreams.blogspot.com/

Thanks for sharing this Scott!!!Want more videos like this!
February 26, 2010 at 1:31 pm
yeahh.. i do the same!
February 26, 2010 at 1:34 pm
Not quite so original :) I saw someone with a scarf tied that way a few months ago and have been tying mine like that ever since! I love how elegant it looks and it's not a bulky as some other, more simple ways.
haha! Good to know, will try this for sure :)
February 26, 2010 at 1:38 pm
I've been experimenting with scarf knots myself but i like this way more than anything I have come up with.
February 26, 2010 at 1:42 pm
Reminds me of the fancy knots men used to tie in their ascots. Not that I remember, but I've read about it.:)
February 26, 2010 at 1:48 pm
Very smooth! Saw some scarves like that in soho at a shop called the meg cohen design shop- they have some really beautiful cashmere scarves similar to that one, with the v classic stitching, as well as fingerless gloves that are so soft! x
February 26, 2010 at 1:51 pm
Had to stand backwards in the mirror to do it. Now can walk out with confidence :)
Cool. Sooooo, stylish, will try it tomorrow.
Have a wonderful weekend.
February 26, 2010 at 1:56 pm
Nice knot.I love it. i only have to wait until next winter to use it.
February 26, 2010 at 1:57 pm
That's how i always wear my scarves…since I was ten!

Love it! Love the tutorial! Love you!
February 26, 2010 at 2:15 pm
That's one fine suit there…
The process may not be complicated, but the look is overly complicated. It's such a simple scarf, but, tied thus, it weighs too much.
February 26, 2010 at 2:18 pm
it's too hard :D
February 26, 2010 at 2:19 pm
Nice. How about allowing us to download the clip for future reference? Thx.

That is….so very cool. Thanks for the video instruction on the knot. I will be using it right away WITHOUT getting all tied up!

February 26, 2010 at 2:35 pm
Hi!That's really nice video. It is the first time I can see such a knot used by another person.I've been using this knot, since December last year. That was my own invention in the use of nautical knot – polish name is "wyblinka".World is small :)fular
February 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm
February 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm
LOVE It. Now why didn't I think of that?
February 26, 2010 at 2:43 pm
I have seen that knot one people in the past and have always wondered how do it. It's So elegant and interesting. Thank you Sartorialist!
February 26, 2010 at 2:45 pm
That's a keeper. Maybe I'll even forward it to my son. Thanks!
February 26, 2010 at 2:48 pm
love it! I had to watch the video a few times before I got it right :)
February 26, 2010 at 2:52 pm
I learned how to do this know while in Morocco! I bought a hand woven scarf at a local market and the man who made it taught me how to do it! So cool :)
February 26, 2010 at 2:58 pm
I love a good detail that brings attention to something simple.
This is called "pretzel"
February 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm
It´s is a constrictor knot. Used to tien of bags etc. on boats. But this is a nice way to use it.
February 26, 2010 at 3:05 pm
I love this knot too… I have been wearing it for about a year now, after seeing it on a blog (i don't remember which one unfortunately), but nobody ever took a picture of me in the street because of it :)
February 26, 2010 at 3:10 pm
The video content is fantastic, and the scarf is equally impressive. I love the colors, and I love your blog!
Awesome! I just practiced the technique. Going to class today with this knot!
i like that even though it's knotted, it sits beautifully on him and doesn't appear too bulky.
February 26, 2010 at 3:11 pm
Its so easy :)
February 26, 2010 at 3:12 pm
love it! :)
February 26, 2010 at 3:19 pm
Very interesting, but it does look like he attempted to loop the scarf but just couldn't get the hang of it…. Looks good though.

February 26, 2010 at 3:20 pm
ahhh thanks for the guide..
February 26, 2010 at 3:25 pm
I like it and will practice until I can do it. Btw I love your blog, its fantastic! greetings from Peru!
February 26, 2010 at 3:29 pm
I do my scarf the same way! It looks so much better with a striped two-tone scarf though. Escher would be proud.
Cool video Sart. Dumb jokes are great for Fridays– CHEERS!
February 26, 2010 at 3:31 pm
Now THAT is a great knot.Works great with bigger scarves too,just tried it.
February 26, 2010 at 3:32 pm
the sartorialist does video… I love it (the scarf is a fresh idea to me as well)
February 26, 2010 at 3:35 pm
Haha, It might not be complicated but I can't seem to keep my eye on the knot's twist & turns…
I'm definitely going to have to save this for next season though as it's already starting to warm up here in Austin.
Dig the knot.
February 26, 2010 at 3:36 pm
Very cool way to wear the scarf, I love it. Going to give it a whirl this evening. He's wearing some of my favorite nearly non-color colors. Would love to see the face, but I guess you'll keep us all in suspense. Being from Florence, I'm sure he is easy on the eyes!
February 26, 2010 at 3:38 pm
I love it! great idea.
Thank you for the video. Now it's just a matter of practice…
February 26, 2010 at 3:50 pm
Very innovative! What's equally amazing is how observant you are, Scott. I probably wouldn't have noticed the knot if I had walked by this person.
February 26, 2010 at 3:54 pm
love it! funny enough, i was researching just yesterday the tracht, a historical festive dress from where i come from (south tyrol) and found exactly this scarf technique (on women though). very nice!
February 26, 2010 at 3:56 pm
Thanks for the tutorial! I have seen a few people with their scarves tied this way and had wondered how to do it myself.
February 26, 2010 at 3:57 pm
that is one hell of a not. Awesome but you are right, the is the right scarf to do it. With those thin lines, it really works.
February 26, 2010 at 3:58 pm
Oooh I can't do it !!)
February 26, 2010 at 4:03 pm
Just rearranged my scarf. Awesome.
February 26, 2010 at 4:09 pm
Sigh. Ties and knots- the Europeans just do them better.
February 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm
ACK!! This is pure genius. Thank you!
February 26, 2010 at 4:45 pm
looks great, thnx!
February 26, 2010 at 4:46 pm
WOW! I'm feeling so stylish right now because I've been using this double loop knot for quite a while. I love it and looks quite nice even with single colour scarves.
February 26, 2010 at 4:49 pm
outstanding! just tried it at home. will be wearing this style tomorrow night.
Never mind the knot and the tying — though these show off the patterna and color of the scarf to perfection — it's all about the pun in the title. LOL ;-}
February 26, 2010 at 4:51 pm
Really interesting way to tie a scarf…nice :)
February 26, 2010 at 5:13 pm
ha one of my friends taught me how to "tie" my scarf exactly like this and I do it all the time!
February 26, 2010 at 5:24 pm
Years ago, Bill Cunningham devoted a whole montage to men on the street wearing scarves folded in half then the ends pulled through at the middle. The rest of that winter all the dapper circle seemed to wear them that way (that is, unless I hadn't noticed before). This will certainly be MY 2010 update! As Bill always says, "just MARVELOUS…"
February 26, 2010 at 5:52 pm
Very original! Nothing I like more than originality! Good stuff.
February 26, 2010 at 5:59 pm
February 26, 2010 at 6:20 pm
a random stumble onto the QVC channel taught me how to do this like 2 years ago, been doing so ever since
February 26, 2010 at 6:22 pm
Thank you so much for the video! I love it!
February 26, 2010 at 6:31 pm
As an old Eagle Scout, I always love learning a new knot.
February 26, 2010 at 7:18 pm
I used to work in high-end retail and believe it or not but this knot would "sell" a coat (big ticket item!) 80% of the time!
February 26, 2010 at 7:22 pm
me likiee :9
February 26, 2010 at 7:49 pm
A very elegant touch. I love the choice of colour.

February 26, 2010 at 7:54 pm
Thanks for the video. I plan to try this out as soon as possible. The Vancouver weather this week is begging for a nice warm scarf!
February 26, 2010 at 7:55 pm
Very nice! I need to learn his new knot for my scarves.
February 26, 2010 at 7:56 pm
Thank you for the video! I plan to try this out as soon as possible – the Vancouver weather this week is begging for a nice warm scarf…
February 26, 2010 at 8:04 pm
In winter the scarf is man's main outdoor expression of Sprezz….an nice addition to the repertoire.
February 26, 2010 at 8:59 pm
Ah! My sister had showed me this 'technique', and I had forgotten how to do it! Looks so brilliant with the stripes!
February 26, 2010 at 9:05 pm
This is definitely how I will be knotting my scarf from now on. So classy and fresh
February 26, 2010 at 10:25 pm
Love, love, love the scarf, love the knot, love the video!
February 26, 2010 at 10:47 pm
I love this knot, I use it all the time come winter, and am often asked how I did it. Looks great with any scarf, and is superbly warm with a big pashmina.
It's actually really easy…I use a slightly different method, but however you do it, it only takes a couple of goes to get the trick & then you'll never forget!
February 26, 2010 at 10:58 pm
COOL!!!!! Plus it looks quite elegant!
February 26, 2010 at 11:18 pm
Knot, cool.Video, brilliant.
February 26, 2010 at 11:35 pm
love that scarf knot. I already tried it out today. its so interesting. thanks so much for the videov :]
February 27, 2010 at 12:11 am
I learned this knot from a woman in Breckenridge CO a few years ago. I use it all the time and get compliments on it every time I wear it.
February 27, 2010 at 12:15 am
Thank you so much for this video! I just did it myself and I love it, but without the video I never would have figured out how he did it!
February 27, 2010 at 1:24 am
I've been tying my scarf this way for years. I learned it from a boutique owner in Tucson.
February 27, 2010 at 2:48 am
Lovely! Haha thanks for sharing these small tips and tricks.
I´m embedding this on my blog aswell.
February 27, 2010 at 4:29 am
fantastic! needs a long scarf… got to find one.. :)
February 27, 2010 at 9:21 am
It's times like these when I don't mind if Winter lingers longer;) Merci.
Now out to find some new patterned scarves. . .
February 27, 2010 at 10:32 am
Awesome!And yes, thank heavens for the video… I was about to search all over Youtube for an instructional, myself!
February 27, 2010 at 10:51 am
This is such a cool way to tie a scarf!!!! Eyeryone has their own ways of tying scarfs but this one is just really easy and so nice looking. Scarfs are soo in right now in Paris too!!
February 27, 2010 at 11:28 am
Great knot and the tutorial was very helpful! I love the detailing on his scarf. xo
February 27, 2010 at 2:02 pm
Amazing sync. I've filtered through plenty of knots one week ago, and have chosen this one to add to my basic one for going out. I'm using it right about three-four days. I'm really shocked…
February 27, 2010 at 2:29 pm
February 27, 2010 at 3:35 pm
Thanks for sharing! I t(r)ied it and I love it :)
February 27, 2010 at 3:41 pm
HA! I've been doing this knot myself for a while now. Funny how some people that have never met think alike. Thumbs up for the knot :)
February 27, 2010 at 4:37 pm
Fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing the technique.

now there's something that i can incorporate into my wardrobe – it's free!
February 27, 2010 at 5:47 pm
I work in retail and am forever having to teach people this way of tying scarves… I know it as the "bella knot," from Italy. Love this post!
February 27, 2010 at 6:23 pm
What an amazing know. The beauty is also in the scarf, this knot works better with a multi colored scarf.
February 27, 2010 at 7:49 pm
Putting this on video was genius.
February 27, 2010 at 11:10 pm
I saw this last night and absolutely had to try it today with a lightweight scarf (it's already about 70 degrees here in Texas). I couldn't get the video to work on my computer for whatever reason, and it wasn't coming in very clear on my phone, but I figured it out on my own after about ten tries. I love it. I'd love more scarf tutorials!
February 27, 2010 at 11:35 pm
I've been wearing scarves like this for awhile! I love how it looks woven but is so easy to knot =)
February 28, 2010 at 2:08 am
i love how he straightens his coat at the very end after the demothat's the stylish touch
February 28, 2010 at 3:45 am
February 28, 2010 at 9:17 am
I know howw to do it from my mother long ago, it's really so easy yet timeless.
February 28, 2010 at 12:36 pm

February 28, 2010 at 4:36 pm

The video is genius. Will try.

I LOVE the title – great play on words there! xxo
February 28, 2010 at 7:39 pm
HOLY Crap!! That's an amazing i need a step by step guide though
February 28, 2010 at 10:12 pm
I just tried it, and it's so easy but looks so intricate! Any chance you have a picture of his full outfit?

GREAT IDEA to show the video – would make a great series!
March 1, 2010 at 8:00 am
Scott,that's the dopest knot I've seen…you just don't see this in the south, thanks for sharing!
March 1, 2010 at 12:35 pm
I love it and it seems easy, although I'm still trying to figure it out. Hope my boss doesn't walk by my office since I've been trying for the past few minutes…
March 1, 2010 at 1:04 pm
Finally got it. It's so easy (once you figure it out!). Thank you
March 1, 2010 at 4:36 pm
Works like a charm! Great for a thin woman's scarf too.
March 2, 2010 at 1:42 am
Thanks for posting the video…it was really helpful! I wore my scarf like this on Sunday…easy to do and looked great! This might be my new favorite way to wear scarves :)
March 2, 2010 at 4:06 am
Learned and used!Very nice
March 2, 2010 at 6:38 am
Just tried it in pink :-) and it looks great, very easy, and now all my female colleagues want the same knot… in a single minute passed from having a "original knot" to a "everybody Knows this knot"…
March 2, 2010 at 7:16 am
I LOVE scarves, and to give them just the right volume/length proportions, I've been using that knot for ages! Sometimes I choose to wear it half over my shoulder though, it just distributes itself better than a traditional knot. good to see it's now officially approved ;)
March 2, 2010 at 9:29 am
Awww Excellent :)
March 2, 2010 at 8:48 pm
March 3, 2010 at 12:12 am
The video was absolutely amazing. After two failed tries, I got it on the third, and I squealed for a good ten minutes over how amazing and unique this knot is.
March 3, 2010 at 7:40 pm
This knot was made very popular by the Korean TV serial "Winter Sonata".
March 3, 2010 at 10:23 pm
SO FUN! i will try this tomorrow… thank youuuu!
March 4, 2010 at 4:30 am
This is so cool. It's still warm weather in Australia but I'm walking around my house wearing a scarf with this cool knot! Thanks for the video.
March 4, 2010 at 7:59 am
I've showed the knot to people since Georgina Von Estorff showed me and my friend Veronica about OMG more than twelve years now uff time flies :) i'm glad you showed it so I can tell people to watch the video and stop asking me how do you do it? it is very easy people c'mon :D
March 6, 2010 at 7:43 am

Princess Letizia from Spain wears this knot!
It's a royal example of style! ;)
March 12, 2010 at 9:12 am
I did this knot with a blue pashmina and all my friends were intrigued…They all asked me how to do it!
Props to the video.

October 2, 2012 at 7:21 pm
I’ve used this knot since learning it from this post. Except during the summer, when I then *forget* how to tie the knot, ensuring that I return to this post to re-learn it!
