When the weather turns crisp, we suggest holding out on wearing a coat for as long as possible. This is the optimal time for men's clothing—a shirt under a sweater, with a blazer or puffer vest and, of course, a scarf. Like a tie designed for the elements, it adds some color and texture, especially come winter when you're bundled up from your knees to your neck. How you knot it is up to you, though this season offers some that don't tie at all.
