If any of y’all are in Chicago this weekend, I’d highly recommend checking out the “DIY Plush” Custom Exhibit and Launch party at the Rotofugi gallery. Not only to witness the creative will of dozens of artists focussing soley on decorating and adorable plush toy blank-canvas Plushforms , but because I assure you there will be plenty of neckercheifs to observe.
I must mention that one specific guest artists, Chicago’s Emily Cunningham, will be present, and most definitely has drawn pictures of herself in neckercheifs, though not on her new website Www.EmilyCunningham.Com
Brooks Brothers (ahem, womens section) has a Flashed-out site on how to tie neckerchiefs. Very slick, very fashionable. Here’s some choices you have:
- The French Twist
- The Square Knot
- The Neck Ring
- The Neck Wrap
- The Slip Knot
- The Knotted Belt
- The Head Wrap
of course… WE all know there are way more ways to wear neck flair:
I can’t think of any others off the top of my head, but feel free to send submissions.
Nothing quite complements both rocking and rolling (and select rapping) more than a well-placed Neckerchief.
Just ask this guy… a Brooklynite enjoying Simian Mobile Disco “in his own special way.”
(Thanks Butter Team)
Quick List of musicians and the kercheifs that tickle their vocal chords… (I’ll add more as I find them)

9. Justin Timberlake
8. Jimmy Page from Led Zepplin
Believe it or not, Rolling Stone ran some sort of promotion like… guess who the hell on our front cover is going to wear a neckerchief. Check it.

4. Kevin Barnes of Of Montreal
and MORE to come…
My cape was snagged on a fence for the past three months, so pardon the tranquilness of the blog.
After successfully tearing the yellow satin cape I traditionally wear on Wednesdays from the construction fence for a brand new Church’s Chicken, I busked just enough money to pay for a bus ride back to my house so I can present you with… CATS IN NECKERCHIEFS!!!
…will stop kids in Chicago from wearing neckerchiefs… There’s always a healthy supply of them over at The Mid Wasteland— an aptly named Chitown fashion blog:
The cossack is a nice touch… were there Russian vikings? There should’ve been.
When wearing accessories, make sure they match. Notice: unnecessary neckerchief perfectly complements unnecessary glasses.
Timeless, be-golded nape flair.
whew. That’s enough for today.
(editorial note: Rob will be able to cover the many kercheifs that have pillaged their way up the Lake Michigan coastline to Milwaukee. That’s right — we’re setting up franchises. I only hope I can hold down the fort here in Chicago.)
