It will be time to think about scarf season soon, lest cold air make itself all too well acquainted with our chests. Fortunately, the first shipment of scarves and mufflers for Autumn has arrived at the ASW store, including half a dozen cashmere, silk, wool and silk and lambswool and angora combinations from Begg of Scotland and Drake's London.
The principal difference between scarves and mufflers of course is a foot of length. Mufflers are fine for tying ascot style in the vee of a jacket or overcoat. The extra length of a scarf encourages other sorts of looks, including the braided knot that is the warmest of them all.
Joining the scarves this week are several new styles of cashmere knitwear that will accomplish similar cold resistant things to related portions of the torso. A look In New Arrivals will be rewarded.
