The insouciant cravat

Groomed and polished on one end of the spectrum, careless and dishevelled on the other. The reality is that both can be attractive on a man, but that the ultimate goal for most men right now is to find that place in the middle where the two meet, and hover there looking like he’s never too close to either end. A scarf or cravat around the neck can have an antiquated feeling of sartorial restraint about it if tied too perfectly. This gent, photographed outside the Dior show in Paris, struck the balance pretty well by way of his neck piece being insouciantly wrapped around, and buttons on both shirt and cardigan undone – yet still with crisp, clean, clothes.
