Neckwear Alternatives: Consider the Ascot

When I start thinking about changing up my fall neckwear game, instead of buying a new tie, I like to turn to an often overlooked accessory: an ascot.

What’s the difference between an ascot and a cravat? The short answer is that a cravat is typically thought of as more formal than an ascot. Also, an ascot is tied more like a scarf, while a cravat is sometimes fastened with a pin.

Ascots are often thought of as being stuffy. That’s a characterization I have to disagree with. It’s all in the wearer’s attitude.

However, if there is one prerequisite for wearing an ascot, that would be confidence. An ascot is a commitment and an advanced style move. Do it only if you really believe you can pull it off.
