I am curious what types of scarf people like to wear the best. I have 90s, a couple of cashmere giant triangles and 140 CGSM and prefer the latter. I have thought about getting the 140 silk but worry they may be impractical. I am a bit bored (still in lockdown) and curious what everyone likes. The poll allows for two options per vote since I suspect many can’t pick just one!

I voted for the silk 90s just because they still reflect/shade as silk (whereas cashmere colours are less forgiving).

They are:

The most versatile to fold/style/tie
Usually have most exciting designs in an option of cws
Strong
Light
Warm or cool
East to carry/pack
Easy to wash (unlike moussies)

BTW Some of your categories could split people. I think you will find that there are many that only buy either mousseilne stoles OR 140s. There are very few that would put twillies and maxi-willies in the same category, let alone the Maxi-twilly and the maxi-twilly Cut.

Also the cashmeres that I find the most wearable are the (men's) 100s.

while most of mine are 90s silks i voted for 140s CS and 45 silks, they are easier to handle.
90s require a bit more efforts and dressing up, while other 2 formats work well with very casual jeans looks, too :smile:

Oh I need more than two options hahaha

Also I think my answer changed through my life because I have lived in a couple different places with quite different climates which changes the usefulness of certain formats (for example stoles/mufflers for colder climates).

If I am just thinking of what I love the most my vote is 90s. I just love looking at them a lot. But I think most worn is CSGMs. Like the poster above I find them easier to use with more casual outfits which is my style. So I’m voting on those two!

I favor the 140 in cashmere/silk as well as the 140 in silk because I use that to wear under my jackets
A spontaneous purchase was the silk plisse to fill in the neckline of a Hermes suede
& leather lined coat that needed something unexpected & colorful..

Love of my life do you find the 140 silk easy to wear? I am debating if I want to give it a try but I am worried it will be a waste. I live in a four season climate.

I am sorry I can’t change the categories. I just tried but it won’t let me!

I wear them primarily under my jackets in the cooler weather with a knot in the center & then tied.
I also wear them like a crossover but usually under a jacket or coat.
They work best with cotton, wool or cashmere. They slide on leather which I wear a lot seasonally.
I also think some patterns/designs look better in the silk as the colors seem more vibrant & lustrous.
The CGSM catch easily...so that is another deterrent but some patterns are just glorious
& I have purchased many of the same design in multiple colorways

I chose giant triangle and maxi-twilly (in the various formats/cuts). I’m terrible at intricate knots and ties, and tend to take off/put back on my scarves several times during the day. With a triangle or mt, it’s a simple wrap around my neck and I’m done! I’m not even concerned about what parts of the design are on display.

If I could a chose third - then definitely the losange (both men’s and women’s, all sizes) for is the same reasons mentioned above!

I love the 140 silks. I found them the most versatile and easy for me to wear. I have tried and tried, but I just can't seem to master many of the techniques for the 90 silks, except for just a few.
How do you wear the 140s? I just use a scarf ring for the 90s?

I have thought about a scarf ring for the 90 but haven't yet gotten one yet. For the 140, I don't know the proper technical terms for the styles but I wear it in similar styles to the shawls and have worn them in the warmer months with just blouses and in the fall/winter with jackets. For me, they just seem the easiest and less fussy to wear.

The 90’s, for their versatility, variety, and ease of care. The 70’s, for their luscious softness and perfect dimensions for casual tie-and-go. H, please make more Vintage silk 70’s, those were so fun! My #3 is CGSM for their spectacular size & details, combined with the casual softness of fabric and colors, so cozy and comforting.
