On the Street……Broadway, New York

It’s a real skill to keep a big scarf from looking like a neck brace. I love how “fluffily” he was able to knot his scarf.  Actually, I think to describe it as “frothy”  would be more accurate.

    You’re right. He wrapped it beautifully.
    The blues in that scarf look so bright against that coat. I dig it.

    The knot is a big mess and the scarf is too long and thick. For dudes, myself included, I prefer thinner material and a more subtle profile in a scarf. Cool jacket, though.

      Yea, but it’s painful to see such thin scarves in the middle of winter. Later on when it’s really freezing cold, I think big fluffy scarves will be much more pleasant to see.

    I think it’s his hair that completes the look! So carefree but with an attitude, just like the scarf.

    it almost looks like he’s wearing two different scarves/ interesting bag he’s carrying also

    Thank you so much for posting this!

    I am really inspired by the colors, and the expression in his face is so light hearted

    Sorry but definitely no. The color combination is in my opinion pretty bad and the scarf it`s so big it looks like a shawl. It`s different as the guys you posted not son long ago in NY with big neckerchiefs in very fine fabrics. That`s a bit too fashion for me but certeanly tasty. Conversely, this for me looks cheap, bulky and mismatched.

    Frothy…such a perfect word for the pic

    I always try not to make my scarf look like a neck “cast”.

    He looks more concerned with being warm than with being “chic”–and the serendipitous result is that he looks lovely in an unfussy, unstudied way. The frothy scarf works perfectly with his frothy hair. And his smile is wonderful!

      agreed! and because of all that one of the nicer pics of late.

    Love the classic tartan and the fringe! Yes, he wraps his long scarf with the ease of a bedouin … very smart!

    “Frothy”- I love it! You have been drinking too many lattes (or cappuccinos)! Good adjective, though.

    I want to take him home! Although my current Japanese boyfriend would probably be confused.

    Is that a moleskin coat? Nice details and fit. I am not feeling the scarf though.

    Come to Denmark for further scarf inspiration – that’s our speciality. He does do a really good job as well, though!

    Frothy scarf, frothy hair, warm smile, dancing eyes and great colours. Thank you Scott!

    The scarf with the bag just works. It’s a great example of not being matchy-matchy and still cohesive.

    I LOVE those colours – that’s an amazing scarf.

    Love the hairstyle! Somehow it looks effortless….

    The trick to avoiding the neck brace look is to have a long neck. Or at least pay attention to proportion. Oh and if U have a short or no-neck reconsider turtlenecks too.

    hm… i like his bag more than a scarf.

    What wonderful faces you also hone in on, Mr Schuman! I enjoy the hint of the same colour in the satchel echoing the jacket, with the scarf being a strong-in-its-frothiness contrast. The Sartorialist subjects are so often fascinating… One wants to know more about them. I think it ‘s due significantly to the atmosphere created in making the photograph; the Photographer is captivated but respectful of his subjects.
