A man needs a bit of silk to close his shirt collar. With the passing of time, the negative associations that certain television sitcoms may have given the ascot in the United States have also passed on. That has removed one of the principal objections to neckwear that is other than the conventional four in hand. Indeed, I find that many Americans have never seen an ascot before, and approve of the sight. It makes for a more finished look, one that is very suitable for summer days and rosé d'Anjou.
Wear silk at the neck.
