Joseph Abboud: The Art of the Scarf

clipped from
I love scarves. I love silk, cashmere, cotton and anything in between. They are great for travel because they pack small, look pretty, can brighten any tired face or wrinkled outfit.

Now they are finally getting their place in sun on the men's counter of your nearest store. Here is a bit of the full glorious story, or click here if you have the WSJ online...
At this spring's runway shows and on the streets of New York City, more men have been wearing scarves with style -- thoughtfully twisted and tied just so. The look has long been popular among men in Europe, and now it is spreading in the U.S. as well.

That's welcome news for menswear designer Joseph Abboud, who is renowned not just for designing scarves but also for wearing them. "It's gone from something for warmth to fashion accessory," says Mr. Abboud, who says he owns about 250 scarves and wears a scarf almost every day. "Even when I travel, I'll bring two or three with me." His new menswear line, jaz, launched last year, features loads of scarves in cotton, silk and cashmere.
