Il foulard è troppo chic sugli uomini dalla forte personalità.

Blogger j. said ... (3:38 PM) : 

wow i like the second one. amazing pic!


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:38 PM) : 

That second scarf is amazing, such bold, beautiful colours.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:38 PM) : 

U really sure the second one is an Hermes??


Anonymous Daly said ... (3:39 PM) : 

Yes.In a small pieces...Love your comment, your both eye...


Blogger blue roses said ... (3:40 PM) : 

a bright silk scarf can make almost any outfit, but i especially love the look when paired with more neutral and rugged men's wear.


Blogger Kathy said ... (3:40 PM) : 

me too.....k


Blogger GINGER FASHION MONSTERS said ... (3:42 PM) : 

A scarf can definitely add colour to an outfit, particularly for guys where clothes tend to be unconspicous. So opting for an Hermes scarf seems like a great way to jazz up what you're wearing even more so if you're a guy!


Blogger Passionisto said ... (3:42 PM) : 

Is that scarf from the palio di siena? Go pantera go.


Anonymous Antonia at Swedish Love Affair said ... (3:43 PM) : 

This looks fantastic! How doesn't love stylish men?!


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (3:47 PM) : 

Although I like the scarves in both photos, it's in the second shot that the scarf really pops out thanks to your skills with the camera


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:47 PM) : 

That *pop* of color with the contrasting hem (second picture) is marvelous. Yes, more men should wear Hermès scarves. The unstructured knots and unfussy wrapping go a long way to making them casual and sportif.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (3:51 PM) : 

for 3:38
No, I'm not sure it is hermes but i'm pretty sure that's what Hugh told me. I idea is not hermes but the ability of bold color to lift a look.


Blogger Alys said ... (3:51 PM) : 

Seems to work best with two contrasting colours...


Blogger Claggie said ... (3:51 PM) : 

Those men are definitely wearing the Hermés scarf right. I love when something so small can add so much character to a look!


Blogger Eline said ... (3:52 PM) : 

The blog-title says it all!


Blogger Ray said ... (3:55 PM) : 

An Hermes scarf is the ultimate chic accessory next to the Kelly... and now now just the envy of women around the world. It's fantastic to see that these men are not afraid to accessorize, the chain in image 1 and rings in image 2 are also amazing.


Blogger Cole said ... (4:01 PM) : 

those scarves are legit wish i had the cash


Anonymous B. in the Know said ... (4:05 PM) : 

I totally agree - love a good scarf on a man. Does wonders.
Much love,


Blogger Andy said ... (4:10 PM) : 

Hermes rulezzzzz! That second picture looks fabulous :)


Blogger Milica said ... (4:13 PM) : 

Amazing photos! I'm speechless! :)


Blogger Copper Etiquette said ... (4:19 PM) : 

He is working that scarf.


Anonymous Al said ... (4:25 PM) : 

Any male who knows how to accessorize and pull off the look at the same time, is a winner in my book. I just wish more of them could do both!

It's that subtle touch of color everyone needs in their lives...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 PM) : 

Love the contrast between the masculine closed fist and the delicate feminine scarf in the second pic. Well done!


Blogger my healthy twist said ... (4:43 PM) : 

I concur! XOXO,


Anonymous meenal @ maison marigold said ... (4:44 PM) : 

unexpected..therefore really striking...xx meenal


Blogger davidikus said ... (4:51 PM) : 

I recently commented that Hermès scarves were a rare sight nowadays! I was wrong. Men are wearing them now.


Anonymous texasgal said ... (4:55 PM) : 

Love the second shot especially, speaking of which, would you happen to know what that gorgeous ring (with the stone) that he is wearing is??


Blogger Sarah said ... (5:17 PM) : 

I don´t know how you do it, but your vision from these people at the street, make them so special, the objects come after! you are such an artist!!!! congratulations!


Blogger Kathleen said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Also love the chain. And the rings. And the fist.


Blogger Nathalie said ... (5:21 PM) : 

Great pictures. These are some beautiful shots.


Blogger 2heels1flash said ... (5:24 PM) : 

I ♥ it ! hermes forever....


Blogger Amy Creyer said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Yes yes yes! I am obsessed with Hermes scarfs. The perfect pop of color. I especially love them on men. I feel like not enough men utilize small colorful elements like a silk scarf. It has the added effect of making men look more masculine.


Blogger Maggie said ... (5:32 PM) : 

Indeed those are great photos. Like one said the devil is in the details.


Blogger Kira Lilly said ... (5:34 PM) : 

who doesnt love hermes?
second picture is exquisite, such beautiful colours and tones


Blogger caribbelle said ... (5:41 PM) : 

loving both photos...the second guy looks like the actor from star trek


Blogger Jessie said ... (5:42 PM) : 

love the scarf in the first photograph! so beautiful. love the captures.


Blogger Annushka said ... (5:57 PM) : 

Fantastic scarf!!!


Anonymous Sam said ... (6:37 PM) : 

The second photo is amazing! I love the colors and the intensity in that man's eyes.

Love love love Hermés scarves!! The only thing that bests it is a Alexander McQueen skull scarf! :)

It shows off something I find really beautiful in a man, confidence.


Blogger jackie said ... (7:34 PM) : 

i love the contrast of their tough, manly looks with the sensitive and soft yet bold scarves...

i <3 you scott- you make my days!


Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (7:50 PM) : 

Wow Sart, you're digging deep... I love that the scarves and the whole look are still very relevant. That's the beauty of style isn't it? Eternal :)


Blogger auntie fruf said ... (9:13 PM) : 

Hermes is Hermes. Always stunning. Always appropriate. Always tres chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:28 PM) : 

Love the top pic! Any idea who did the wallet chain?


Blogger AKB said ... (9:49 PM) : 

I love what the texture and color of the scarves do for the muted tones in the outfits themselves. It's a welcome contrast. Great photos, as always.


Anonymous candleashes said ... (9:51 PM) : 

wow, the second photo is a true work of art. I absolutely love it.
A scarf and hoodie with jacket? awesome for portrait, really weird for real life.
the guy in top photo is perfectly dressed


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 PM) : 

The second one is a truly amazing shot... it belongs in a museum!!!


Anonymous Liz said ... (11:07 PM) : 

Ohhhh - really love the bright red/orange trim to the electric blue. And the details on his rings. Bravo.


Blogger Caitlin Rose said ... (11:27 PM) : 

absolutely stunning.


Blogger sorelle in style said ... (11:52 PM) : 

beautiful shots! i recently praised my hermes scarf on my blog - they really are pieces of art and add such beautiful color to any look. clearly your pictures capture this perfectly.



Blogger thwany said ... (12:36 AM) : 

i want one.


Anonymous black suits said ... (2:14 AM) : 

The second photo is great! I love the color of the scarf and how it jives with what the man wears. Terrific!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:20 AM) : 

I think the Hermes scarf on that gentleman from the first photograph looks too caculated. The contrast of texture, the feminin / masucline aspect does not work well here.
Now the second photograph tells a different story. The casualness of how the scarf is worn within the overall colour sheme pares down the feminin aspect such a scarf has. Leaving enough room for a twist to bring the look of this gentleman to a more interresting level.

I just wanted to thank you for exposing me to the Bill Cunningham film. I remember seeing a photo of him on your blog. I just caught the movie tonight in Los Angeles. What an inspiration, beyond fashion, but as a human being.

Thank you.

Blogger RChew said ... (7:07 AM) : 

Plus your photo of that platinum blonde guy wearing a pink/white/silver/gold scarf. I only remember as'9228BurScarfWeb.jpg'. Not sure if it was Hermes but that's my favourite of the 'man wearing silk scarf' genre!


Anonymous sofia said ... (7:54 AM) : 

Haha, I met the last guy in a bar in milano - I didn't figure out what he was doing or who he is even tho we talked for 1 hour. But I also took a picture=)


Anonymous ERTLandCOHN said ... (7:59 AM) : 

Love the second one!
Un saludo,


Blogger B. Inspired. said ... (8:16 AM) : 

I've been wanting to wear a scarf like that, ever since my favorite show, Mad Men


Blogger Love LuLu said ... (9:11 AM) : 

Whatta man. Well, men. Great archive shots. An inspiration of old school meets new world.


Blogger Naftali Stern said ... (9:38 AM) : 

They are both so great, but the second picture, that amazing blue and red trimmed scarf with the double rings; so bohemian and all so perfect!


Anonymous thefashionguitar said ... (9:39 AM) : 

Love the use of color!

Anonymous proletarian Great Gatsby said ... (10:17 AM) : 

I discovered THE SCARF a few years ago and I think it's not just beautiful but also practical.It can gives a touch of bohemian elegance different then a tie.(See the spring/summer collection 2011 of Ermenegildo Zegna)


Blogger Mertxe Hernàndez said ... (10:30 AM) : 

love the scarf


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 AM) : 

i love a hermes scarve, but they tend to make women look matronly, to my opinion. glad to see how good they look when worn by men.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 AM) : 

now that's what i call contemporary! (not the pseudo-conservative (berlusconi) style you see on so many men from Italy on this blog.) a splash of color in the cute way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:11 AM) : 

I instantly like a man with the confidence to wear a scarf that way.


Anonymous Liz G. said ... (11:35 AM) : 

Dashing men. I wish more men in NYC would tuck in their shirts and take off their baseball caps and dress with some thought to elegance. Perhaps they think it's effeminate.:( A pop of color against neutrals is the best.

Seriously great portrait (2nd).

scarves are so whimsical... you can do so much with them. a great scarf collection will last a lifetime


Blogger MSlattery said ... (12:57 PM) : 

This is one of your (new?) categories that I just want to say, "More, please." I love how the scarfs flatter these men, closest thing I've seen to how flattering menswear is on women, reversed.


Anonymous LolóRey said ... (1:06 PM) : 

What a great way to mix things up.
Once again, fashion is about having fun and joy...
Awesome pictures Scoot.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 

where can i get a jacket like in the first pic?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:28 PM) : 

Silk scarves can be gorgeous and these two are some beautiful scarves... problem is when someone wears a scarf like this, it makes me think of (female) flight attendants.


Blogger Meredith M Howard said ... (1:50 PM) : 

I love the first picture. He just looks so cool and sophisticated.

Anonymous bekioutofline said ... (2:00 PM) : 

Silk scarves worn like cowboys or flight attendants is where it's at right now (in my world)...LOVE it.


Blogger Blake said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Stunning images! The colors are masterful, and I love the way each gentleman has that certain look of rugged sophistication.


Anonymous IS THIS IT? models review said ... (3:20 PM) : 

"I Love What An Hermés Scarf Can Do For A Man" as well, both pics are great.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:35 PM) : 

The 2nd picture is great: great colors, great contrast, great expression! Totally love it.


Blogger The Thief and The Cobblers said ... (4:40 PM) : 

the second photo is incredible! It's just amazing.


Blogger John said ... (5:26 PM) : 

Well, y'all have inspired me to start wearing them again. I wore Hermes and other scarves for quite some years, and even fashioned myself to be a bit of a rogue. However, I let life get me down to where dressing has become a chore and not a celebration.

My muse in mind, I remember that it is spring. Time to renew.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:05 PM) : 

You can see the last letters of "Hermes" upside down on the bottom edge of the second picture..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 PM) : 

Second photo: That's my dear friend of 20 years, Hugh, and yes - it is a fantastic photo of a fantastic photographer. Suggestion: please please expand the content of the post to include a series of photos of Hugh wearing gems from his collection of Hermes scarves - he has dozens and each one looks wonderful on him! Hermes is one of his clients.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 AM) : 

I absolutely love these two looks. Great shots.


Anonymous Silk scarves said ... (1:38 AM) : 

I like also this kind of use of silk scarves for men.. soft and chic. Colors are important for the look.


Blogger Henning Pfeifer said ... (7:32 AM) : 

THIS I call fashion photography! Thanks a lot!!!


Blogger KC said ... (10:21 AM) : 

beautiful... especially the first one.


Anonymous MC said ... (4:08 PM) : 

Hugh is a friend, and yes he just wears Hermes scarf better than anyone!
He really has a unique style, his hat I know is from Lock and Co hatters and he design his own jewellery.
Elegance is all in the details.

ooooweee Nippon-jin (sorry that means Japanese). Nice to see a fellow asian, nicely dressed in good proportions. Well thought out outfit though it comes across rather effortless. Love the touch of green, Hermes desu-ka? :)


Blogger 4eyeblogabout said ... (11:30 AM) : 

Ooops, just saw the 2nd man. Not sure if he intended the colour of his neckerchief to pop the way it does, but it POPS! And the rings is nice touch. Class. Good eye, sir.
