It's funny how opinions seem to vary depending on where people are from. Here in London many men wear a scarf during the winter, it's very normal - particularly in the central area where city boys live and work. I think it's because most people do not use the car but public transportation (train, tube, bus) therefore don't have the comfortable of a proper heating system like those who use the car.

Most women and girls here love guys in a scarf but if you go outside the city, the men and women seem to feel differently about this. Many men are quite backward when it comes to fashion and ignorant in my opinion, because they make condescending remarks about men who wear a scarf - such as "men who wear a scarf are gay", "real men don't wear scarf" etc.

Anyway, getting to the point, I want to ask the fashion conscious girls here - do you like a scarf on men? :]

I personally think that wether you're gay or straight, everybody looks good if they can pull off anything :)
why do straight men are afraid of wearing scarfs or wearing pink?
make it fashionable and PULL IT OFF :D

uhm, it really doesn't matter. men have been wearing scarves forever & ever, and it certainly isn't a gay fashion thing. It's a warmth thing.

I wear scarf all the time in the winter anyway. I agree it's not a question of whether you are gay or not but many ignorant men say it is.

I love men with scarves. And our winters are damn cold, so most guys wear them here.

Guys with scarves are hot ! My opinion, and that's not a argument to say, that a guy with a scarf is gay ! oO

scarves are a warmth thing here, I never would have though of thinking of it as associated with gay guys. tons of straight ones here wear it only for fashion.

Uh what?
I have a feeling you actually meant: "do you think straight men look STRAIGHT with a scarf?"

In either case, lulzy question is lulzy.

Actually I've seen a few guys wearing scarves during winter time. I know my cousin does :P
I don't see why they shouldn't wear one?

A sick man, lying in bed all day coughing and asking someone for food is less attractive and manly than one wearing a scarf.

To re-phrase, I am asking whether hetrosexual men look good when they wear a scarf. I don't really care whether they look straight or gay - I just want to know if women like the look. :]

Haha, so I'm from London and my boyfriend works in the City so I might be a little biased here, but I think scarves look good on pretty much any men... well, if they're generally non-scruffy and clean and all. I actually love the autumn/winter particularly because I think men look much better in coats and scarves than without them!

It probably doesn't get cold enough here to warrant a scarf. Men who wear one in the usual sixty or so degree weather look pretentious.

I've never found scarves comfortable, anyway. I like my neck to be free!

But considering straight men and gay men both look... like men... I don't understand why there would be such a discrepancy that you'd need to ask specifically whether or not straight men look good in a scarf.

Do dudes look good in scarves? Yes.
Can I tell if you are straight or gay when you wear a scarf? Absolutely not.

The discrepancy is simply because a lot of people think scarves only works on gay men. I have read comments that only gay men can pull off certain looks.

Also, I remember the time about 2 years ago some guy and I got into an argument all because of the fact I mentioned I wear a scarf and like it but he launched into a homophobic tirade. Sadly he is not the only one either.

If I had a boyfriend that was willing to be my own personal Ken doll (meaning I get to dress him up, not that he has no genitals), I'd be picky with the scarves I'd put him on, and the way it is put on. I had an ex that did the loop thing, like so:



which I think looks plain st00pid on both males and females. I like scarves casually thrown around the neck y'know. If that makes any sense.
