The loop tie:
Before you start tying it, it's important to know that you need something that's at least 70-75 inches long and about 12-15 inches wide. The way you tie it is: You take it the long way, and fold it in half the other way. You tighten the loop and you adjust your scarf. You put it in. Voila! The loop tie!
Generally, as a man, you want a scarf that's about 70-75 inches long, because otherwise, your scarves are just too short - they're not covering you from the elements and, oftentimes, the ends just look ridiculous. For example, here we have an expensive cashmere scarf from Burberry, but it's only sixty inches long. So, for example, if I want to tie a loop tie, it's just very short, and when I walk around it's going to open up and it looks bad.
The loop tie is great for cold winters because you have multiple layers of fabric and it sits very close to your neck so it's really warm... and it's my favorite for cold days.
The second way to tie a scarf is the once-around chest warmer. I like it very much because it's elegant and it looks almost like a scarf from the old days of the gentry in the nineteenth century.
Open your coat, then throw it around your neck, should be about one-third to two-thirds. You open it up, put it on your chest... Once around. And then... on the other side of the chest. You close your coat, and that's it! Voila! The once-around chest warmer! I like it with a double sided scarf because it shows you the different textures, it's warm enough for the winter, yet it's not bulky.
The third way to tie a scarf is the once-around with a simple knot at the end. You start, again, similar like before: throw it around your neck - about one-third to two-thirds. Then you tie it around your neck like so and you make a little knot. And that's it: the once-around with a knot scarf! It's still warm - sits tightly around your neck - the little knot makes it interesting because it looks slightly different and I like this way to tie a scarf because it's rather simple, it's quick, yet with the little knot at the end, it really changes up things, and if you have a scarf with two sides, it helps to bring out the best of both of them.
The fourth way to tie a scarf is called the knot, and it's called that way because it has a simple knot. Here is how you tie it: Throw it around your neck. Take the longer end and form a simple knot. Make sure you go about this high. Now you simply put the other end through the open knot. You tie it up. You adjust it - up and down - so it's tight around your neck. Put it into your topcoat or overcoat. Adjust it a little bit if necessary. And you're good to go! I like it very much for the fall because the knot it not too bulky, lightweight, yet it allows me to wear a scarf and look good.
The fifth way to tie a scarf is called the "count." I like it particularly because it's very elegant and you look like a count. [Laughs]
Alright, throw it over your neck. And, again, like in "the knot," tie a knot. Pull the knot up. And just like the knot, bring in the loose end all the way up. Now what you do: The longer end goes once under and over. Make sure you kind of open up your scarf like so. Now you put it in there, and I like the count because it nicely covers up the 'V' of my coat, so no wind is going to blow in, it warms my chest, and it warms my neck, so I'm covered all around and I look great; That's why I love the count.

When using the loop without a tie, put one end through the loop, then twist the "end" of the loop 180°, then put the other end through the loop. Try out which end is best to do first and which way to twist the loop. There's one in four options that looks amazing, but it's hard to describe in a text. Also, a bonus is that you have like an inner and an outer part, so one half warms your neck directly - partially inside of your shirt - while the other part holds your shirt somewhat together from the outside. It really looks elegant, giving your front appearance a nice extra with its cross pattern of knot(s) (somewhat like a diagonal #). Would be glad if you made a video on this!
Hello Klaus. We do not have a video yet but this article might help:
7. Wear it like a mask and wrap it around your neck once...just kidding but thank you for these videos I still wear the mask style but only outside I wear the count indoors and over the shoulder driving
Very informative! I feel like I know more than the average man about style, but Raphael keeps surprising me with great tips and tricks unheard of. A man with impeccable style and a wardrobe I'd kill to own myself!
"Cause every girl crazy bought a sharp dressed man", hehehe. Looking good. Love it.
Life is s much better with a little extra style. Class is a state of mind and you don't need a vault filled with cash it to look good and have panache.
2nd one is the way that I always use
it looks very classic and noble styled
an of course it is warm
you have a very very good channel
the exact thing that I thought I couldn't find
but you made it real for me!
Don't press a double sided pure silk scarf like trousers. It will leave sharp edges. This will not allow air inside the scarf. If you leave the scarf in its natural pipe like shape, it will feel much more comfortable and warmer. Was this helpful.
Very helpful but i would love to hear him embrace his accent more, especially bc fashion is the best industry to have a great accent it makes you sound wonderful (well i guess at any time ever it sounds wonderful) but maybe he would speak more confidently if he did.
Correct me, if I'm wrong, but is that a chesterfield coat you are wearing? If that's the case, where have you bought it, I've been looking all over the internet, but I can't seem to find one. Did you have yours custom made?
+Morten Lynge Kjaer No, it's a Paletot from Chester Barrie. But what they offer today is not like this anymore. Here you can learn more about the Chesterfield coat. http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/chesterfield-overcoat/
+London Forex These are peccary leather gloves, which are often sold for $400 - $500 a pair, so we provide a great value.
It's like saying $50,000 for Ferrari, are you joking? I can get a Fiat for $10,000. Not all cars are alike, and the same is true for gloves.
That being said, we also offer men's dress gloves for $150. http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/shop/leather-goods/gloves?limit=all
Gandalf as a Maia (named Olórin) before leaving the Undying Lands.
Originally called Olórin , he was accounted as the wisest of the Maiar (with the possible exception of Melian). He was a Maia of Manwë and Varda. He also served under two other Valar, such as Irmo and Nienna. When the Valar decided to send the order of the Istari (also known as Wizards) to Middle-earth, to counsel and assist all those in Middle-earth who opposed the Dark Lord Sauron, Manwë and Varda decided to include Olórin among the five who were sent.
At first, Olórin was nervous and described himself as too weak and too afraid of Sauron. Manwë understood, and told him that that was one main reason why he should go, to overcome that fear. Thus, he insisted that Olórin should go as the third, but Varda convinced him not to include Olórin as the third, but as the second. Olórin agreed, and prepared for his departure from the Undying Lands with the other four wizards.
Arrival in Middle-earth.
When he arrived to Middle-earth, he received Narya, the ring of fire, from Círdan the Shipwright. Olórin, renamed Gandalf , spent many centuries walking among the elves as a stranger, learning from them and teaching them. He later revealed himself as one of the Istari, and eventually became known as the wisest of and most powerful of that order. He joined the White Council, which was formed to investigate a dark power in Dol Guldur, of which Galadriel wanted him to become the leader, yet Saruman came to lead the Council instead of him. Although Saruman was initially more powerful and more knowledgeable about many matters regarding Sauron and the Rings of Power, and was head of the White Council before the War of the Ring, he later grew jealous and afraid of Gandalf,  which was the reason of his betrayal.
