    It has that offhand, old money feel about it. Very nice!

    One excellent scarf knot again! Actually I´m more interested about your RL jacket! I like the classic look of them, but nowadays when I´m so terribly sensible ( ! ), I realize that I have very little use for one. It´s just better I admire them from far.

    Still waiting for that tutorial on how to make a scarf look this snazzy!

    metscan – I find that mixing classic pieces with more casual or funky elements keeps them from looking to stodgy.

    Gorgeous. Classic. Love it.

    Couture Allure – I have to schedule a photographer. I need both hands to do the scarves which makes it tough to take pics. But I promise I will do this. 😉

    Nancy – I wasn’t sure about these colors together, but it did work out. Karen and materfamilias have inspired me to be more daring with my color mixing.

    Sal – thank you!

    materfamilias – thanks! At first I didn’t think these colors would work for me, but was pleasantly surprised once I tried the scarf on.

    Sue – thank you! The jacket is old anyway. ;-p

    LBR – thanks! I’ll take Betty! At least I didn’t remind you of Thurston Howell III….

    Good Life – I still say nobody does the equestrian jackets like Ralph. He totally gets it (not bad for a nice Jewish boy from the Bronx…)

    For a second I thought you and I had the same jacket. I have one almost identical to that by banana republic. Love the scarf. This look reminds me of Betty on Madmen and that is a very good thing.

    nice look…jacket similar to a RL i have in my closet 🙂 just love my RL jackets…you inspired me to pull out my scarves a few weeks ago but, i have not ventured into wearing any yet.

    That’s such a classy combination. I like it that anyone can wear it, old and young.

    Rooi – thanks! That’s what I tend to like about classic pieces, they really are more versatile than trends.
