Hi H Scarf Lovers! Today I received my Real Escuela Andaluza carre (already authenticated here) in the mail. It’s listed as immaculate new unworn condition - it is indeed though I do see a couple of blemishes - but considering its age (from 1996) I feel like perhaps I shouldn’t be too picky…it does look like the previous owner never wore it. It’s about $400 including shipping. Is it a good buy? I’ve been checking out vintage scarves as I don’t like the current offerings - they are either too pastel or too rainbow-colored or too cute for my taste. I like the equestrian theme, the navy blue border with a bit of red of this one. What do you think?

Beautiful scarf, it is quite regal! REgarding the pull in the silk, you can fix that with a needle and a steady hand. Simply pull the stitch back into place. Should only take about 2 minutes..... Great buy!!

I’m too nervous to deal with the pull myself I feel like I’d only make it worse. It seems minor enough so I probably would just leave it alone!

Beautiful scarf - classic design! The blemishes are very tiny; once you start using and wearing it, you will most likely get a few of those, so I wouldn't sweat it. The price wise, it is a fair value for an unworn and crispy silk that is 25+ years of age. Enjoy it!
