Both small red scarfs and both differently worn! His is absolutely not bad and actually looks good with the long dark blue(?) coat. But I must say that I prefer her style. She will become a fantastic female pirate and famous on the worldseas for her delicate small red scarf!
These remind me of historical pictures of the Croatian army from the 17th century I have seen. They wore a thin red cravat-type neckpiece. This style was adopted by the Parisians and went on to become the necktie as we know it today.
