Hill-Side has built a brand on the premise that just about everything is better made from chambray. And so far—as applied to ties, handkerchiefs and bandanas—they’ve always been right. Their latest gem takes the French fabric into the world of scarves and, while we never would have thought of it…they may be on to something.
The result is a little light, and it doesn’t offer the kind of windstopping fuzziness you’ll want when January rolls around, but it’s also a lot more manageable than the wooly competition. We suggest rolling it up and stashing it in a briefcase, desk drawer or glove compartment for safe keeping. The next time a late-night cold front rolls in, you’ll have an extra line of defense.
