    I'd wear it, but I'm in SoCal, so it would be an affectation. I'd need bunny slippers and a silk vest to go with it.

    Yes, but with the caveat that I give zero consideration to what a scarf looks like. If it's cold enough that I want a scarf, any scarf will do.
    I think she meant a scarf that you would buy yourself, as opposed to a scarf that you'd use to save your life...

    I'd wear that. It looks like a quality scarf.

    One thing to be careful about is the length. My wife made me a scarf which was a great scarf, but a few feet too long and it made it very bulky to wear. Too short is bad but too long is bad as well. If it's not a surprise gift, work with him to find out what a good length for it would be.

    It will be between 55" and 60". The knitting and crochet sites tell me this is appropriate length for men's scarves. I agree too long would not be desirable (Dr. Who notwithstanding). I was more worried about it looking too lacy. I'm fairly pleased with it so far.

    hehe But would you wear it if you were in Canada?

    You mean the color change in the yarn? Or the geometric look of the stitch?

    I'd wear it if it were given to me, but I wouldn't buy it for myself. Part of wearing it depends also on how it feels--its texture, which one cannot judge totally from a photo.

    R we talking scarfs or R we talking green eggs and ham? Answers suggest the latter.

    It's a scarf ferchrissake. Praise on design , patterns, and shades. Carping is not apropos.

    Yeah, it's my "I'm God" season.

    To clarify, I think it looks good and would probably look good with a shirt and tie, but the truth is that I just don't stop and think about what a scarf will look like with what I'm wearing.

    Focus more on not making it so racy. My heart is pounding.

    I don't think I'm allowed in Canada.
