The indoor scarf has been one of our favorite sartorial grace notes this winter, but if it’s going to carry into summer, we’re going to need something a bit lighter…

This is our favorite candidate so far, newly arrived from Daiki Suzuki’s final Woolrich Woolen Mills collection. It’s a summer scarf, also known as the rich man’s neckerchief, about the same weight as your lightest summer khakis.

It’s an advanced move, especially with this loud a pattern—it’s a balancing act between Aerosmith and 70s-era ascots—but style favors the bold. Pull it off and you’ll have a comfortable neck and an offbeat outdoorsy vibe to see you through summer. We suggest a soft-shouldered cotton blazer and a European Loop.
