Shark Scarf Week: Love Quote Knot

Since I'm not currently cavorting in the shark infested warm Pacific water as planned, I'm redirecting my energies and declaring this Shark Scarf Week here in Summerland...
 

Five years ago, the manager of the East Hampton Calypso generously taught me how to tie this Love Quote scarf knot the way that Calvin Klein had taught her. It's a particularly good looking knot peeking out from your Barbour jacket or worn just with a big wrap sweater in the fall. Noooot so much with dirty, wrinkly khakis and one's competing popped collar...

Kindness of Babe, for manning the camera and wisely steering clear of any closeups of my makeup less face, Lolly, for always being a natural in the spotlight and, General Hahnahninnahnad Pilgie, for juggling the overseeing and underwriting of the whole production and being my lone studio audience...XXOO

  9. LOve that! Have you seen the "sartorialist" knot? It's my new fave. The clip i saw was a total of six seconds long, and i had to freeze frame it to figure it out. but it looks very cool.

  21. After seeing this, I grabbed a scarf, tied it as you instructed, and stylishly went about my day. A gentleman friend of mine saw the knot and said, "that's a clove hitch knot!"(an old sailor's knot apparently), and I said, "no, no, it's Calvin Klein". Either way, I love it!
