    It's cold now (freezing) and so i've taken to wearing a scarf and my friend (the one i mentioned in a GD discussion) thinks that guys who wear scarves are g*y :eek: (i'm at school and moderators might pick up on dodgy words)- this is totally wrong, no? I mean, it;'s a dark green scarf- it's not even white or pink!!

    Completely acceptable. But yes must be a manly dark colour, such as the dark green you have mentioned.

    Ignore your friend - maybe its worth informing him that labelling something `gay` is usually done by men who are uncomfortable with their sexuality! lol! a la Joey in Friends wearing women's underwear. (ok scarves and underwear are not quite the same, but you get my drift!!)

    haha, yes, indeed. but he's like, well , you have to wear it in a certain way- and i just do 1 coil round my neck and then have the 2 ends hanging down my front... i really don't see what's wrong with this!! he's majorly conservative and very traditional, i mean, he's the one that wears a pale blue jacket to school!! :eek:

    Fold your scarf in half so the two ends are touching, and the fold you have just made creates a loop.

    Put the scarf around your neck, still folded, and thread the ends through the loop, so the scarf knots in front of your throat and the two ends hand down the front of your chest.

    This is not only cool, but much warmer than simply coiling. :cool:

    I hope you know that I should be doing my dissertation Rich!! However inane distractions always welcomed!! :p:

    The man's way is what ellewoods just explained. I've seen women do that too, but it's at least less girly than the woman's way

    From what I understand it to mean, it means looking a bit `public schoolboy'ish`, preppy, etc .. but I am willing to stand corrected on that one!
