louis vuitton men's spring summer 2009 "outline" silk scarf

i've not been buying magazines for ages because i know there will be lots of nice products and temptation. but i faltered and in a moment of boredom i bought the latest spring summer 2009 issue of "another man" (anything for jefferson hack really).

so there were nice glossy ads all out in full force. oh dear quick flip the page...

and then you reach the section where they shamelessly hawk their wares at you, and you helplessly stare at them. oh what's that thing there?

hmm nice bags and shoes, but i am really liking that scarf. where's it from?

Ooo it's from vuitton. then i began my search online but i couldn't find any pics or information about it. so i decided to brave the rain and lugg the magazine to the sloane street store to enquire. that's the last piece they had!

needless to say i took it home! the 100% silk scarf is reversible and featured geometric stripes on both sides. ok the creases and folds are annoying me no end, am going to iron it soon. anyway here's the front...

and here's the back. i absolutely love it, i can layer up in the summer with a silk scarf and not feel bulky.

the official description is "echarpe outline gris clai", which in my loose french translation means "grey outline clearly" scarf. non?

and with my fall winter 2008 "plan" silk scarf. the "outline" scarf is actually much longer than the "plan", so it can be twilled around the neck. however the silk is not as flowy as the "plan", "outline" is actually stiffer, but i love it no less.

the scarf wasn't featured on the spring summer 2009 show, but the geometric print was used in the silk ties. here's model of the moment and louis vuitton spring summer 2009 campaign's posterboy tyler riggs sulking it with the geometric print tie.

i was also offered the silk tie, but it doesn't pack the punch like the scarf did. vertical stripes on ties are not flattering on 99% of mere mortals too. but i do love their effort to tie the ties to precision, showing 4 stripes on the knot for both looks!

i lvoe it!

  1. That's one very handsome scarf, the architecture blue print makes earlobes tingle. Nice purchase although I'm not a super fan of LV.

  3. Great scarf I love the architectural one as well. I think it is great that you pointed out Jefferson Hack I think that he is my male style icon. Your blog has really made me start paying attention to mens style.

  9. i wonder if my SA will be able to perform another miracle for me. should i get this or the Crysanthemum pocket square?

  10. i saw the chrysanthemum pocket square too, it was nice but i don't get much use out of it.

    get both? the silk scarf is about the same price as the "plan" scarf.
