The Jersey Scarf

Columbiaknit Scarf

Here’s another update on the summer scarf front, this time from the old hands at Columbiaknit. They’re the Oregon shop that handled all the rugby shirts for L.L. Bean and Land’s End back in the good old days, and they’ve become a workwear favorite in the days since.

These scarves are literally cut from the same cloth, making them about as thick as, well, a rugby shirt—and the perfect guard against any summer chills. They’re also about a third the price of the designer options. As for how to work them into everyday wear, we direct you to the tale of the soporific scarf.
