Accessories add style and and statement to any outfit, men's or women's. A simple piece of fabric can say volumes: quality of the fabric (silk, cashmere and linen are still the best), vibrance or subtlety of the color, style of the pattern, and the way it is worn are details that contribute to the overall impression. For men, the tie has long been the go-to accessory, but as men loosen their shirts and embrace a more casual look, the door has been opened to both new and revived fashion.
Images from another era capture the classy style which a simple piece of fabric supplies.
The collared shirt and tailored jacket identify this fellow as a gentleman. The scarf, silk no doubt, adds softness to the look, and the choice of black indicates reserve.

This gentleman is more formal, but also shows off his 19th century accessories of hat and gloves as well as the tie.
