As we wave goodbye to long, balmy evenings and clear, sunny skies for another year and hunker down as a chill descends upon the capital, we can take solace in the impending return of layering season. Sure, shorts are great and summer suiting retains a certain je ne sais quoi, but if there’s one thing the Brits do well, it’s winter wear. And while you’re stocking up on warming woolly jumpers and dusting off your overcoat, there’s one simple accessory that should not be overlooked: the men’s scarf.

Fringed and fluffy or cushy cashmere, a warming winter scarf is perhaps the most versatile of pieces in any well-dressed man’s style arsenal. Whether thrown over the shoulders of your sharpest suit or knotted tight over a jumper paired with jeans, once the weekend rolls around, wrapping up in a good scarf not only keeps you cosy as colder climes approach, but has the power to amp up even the simplest of outfits with just a swift swaddle at the front door.

So, in preparation for the long nights drawing in and the leaves beginning to fall, here’s our pick of the best winter scarves for men…
