Winter Scarves: The Bigger, The Bigger

December 11th, 2011

Outerwear is getting heavier here in NYC, but it’s not the dead of winter yet.

With the proper use of fabrics and accessories, you can mix up your layers and keep the not-fucking-around parkas in the closet for a bit longer.

I’ve been looking for the “perfect” chunky scarf for a couple years now, and I think I finally found it. Introducing  Yokoo Scarves. She knits every piece in her Etsy store by hand in the color of your choice and the results are amazing. Chunky, soft, durable and most importantly, very warm.

Here the beautiful Karyn and I styled 3 different Yokoo styles.

    If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I rely on these things to keep me warm during my cold commutes from the East village to the fashion district for menswear design school…




    Thanks, as always, for reading – and special thanks again to Yokoo!

    Yours in style,

    Dan Trepanier

      There’s really nothing that can compete with a hand knitted scarf, it’s the best…

      Im not familiar with the series Mad Men but I do have a son who is head over heels for the fashion. I’m looking mainly for scarves and gloves to match a black or grey suit. Please help… Thanks Susan

      The Donut Scarves are a bit trying, but the maroon scarf looks very regal.

    • TheToner

      These chunkier scarves have a little bit more of a masculine feel that I
      like. I wonder if it can be done in black.

      I just picked up two pairs of Allen Edmonds, and the Dalton boots are definitely next on my list.

      Great post, can’t wait to see where TSB goes in the next few months.

      This looks more like runway fashion than men’s fashion.
