Chilly Willy

I'm writing this on Sunday night, huddled on the couch with a blanket cursing at the cold. I hate it. But I must admit, the only ray of sunshine to these chilly temps is the plentiful resurgence of stylish man scarves. 

These beauties come via Sid Mashburn in Atlanta. The Gun Check Cashmere is a particularly nice one at $225 but I happen to love the green mix lambswool just as much, at $45. 

Scarves are an important part of men's fashion, having been a part of the man's wardrobe for over 2000 years, (first worn by Chinese soldiers). Over the years, this rectangle fabric has been adorning necks for warmth and style, evolving into some incredible colors, textures and patterns. These above are via Sid Mashburn and Need Supply in Richmond, Virginia and start at $28. 

Stag Provisions for Men in Austin, Texas has some of my favorites, including the Blue Wave at $96 and the handsome Wave Jacquard scarf for $60. 

And of course, you can't forget Billy Reid from Florence, Alabama. His cream cable scarf is on sale for $78. 

It may seem silly to spend a bit of cash on a scarf but the classic, well made ones will last a long time, becoming a mainstay in a guy's closet year in and year out. This cashmere version in natural from Sid Mashburn is a beauty. But beauty costs, at $275. Peruse all these shops to find the perfect match. And button up, it's chilly willy...

 

Bags, Shoes and Such...

Happy Monday- hope everyone had a good weekend. While I'm still flying high in the sky, I wanted to share this great boutique shop I found called Need Supply in Richmond, Virginia. They opened in 1996 and have slowly expanded their well curated wares to create quite the collection- including clothes, bags, shoes and all manner of manly accessories. 

They have an impressive selection of shoes, covering all price points and styles. I really like their selection of ties, scarves, gloves and pocket squares... 

All their bags have great quality and style but this black satchel by BillyKirk is pretty perfect. It's classic, well made and will stand the test of time. 

Check out Need Supply here- either in person or on-line. They do cater to both men and women and their large selection will keep you happily browsing for hours...
