Perfect Way to Wear Mufflers in this Winter


One of the simplest mufflers knots you can learn and wear. The only complication is you have to determine how low or high to wear it. Normally it hangs a bit looser around the neck than other knots/wraps, so this style is more show than function. A cold-weather variant of the once round, the twice around muffler tying technique is a great choice for when you have a really long and thin muffler and the weather calls for the warmest wrap you can muster.

Mufflers can add a strong element of style, especially when they introduce color to an otherwise bland outfit. As long as it doesn’t compromise functionality, few will question even a brightly colored piece of cashmere that brightens up a banker’s charcoal overcoat and watch cap. However, in less functional roles, such as wearing a light-weight scarf indoors in lieu of a necktie, the man doing so needs to be very comfortable in his own personal style. It’s also a good rule of thumb to keep the rest of the outfit simple so it isn’t competing with the muffler for attention.

Simply drape the mufflers over the neck and the front of your chest under your overcoat. No actual tying happens in this one, so it’s a loose way of wearing a scarf meant more for ornamentation than actual warmth. It works well if you’re wearing a suit or sports jacket with a deep V-shaped front. This is the classic lawyer or businessman’s way of adding a muffler to a suit and tie ensemble.
