The Ideal Accompaniment - A Focus on Scarf Knots for Men

Worn well, a scarf doesn’t just provide warmth and protection against the elements, it adds style to any outfit. A mark of masculinity for centuries, they were once a way of determining rank in the military. Archive images of world-class aviators clearly show how working at high altitudes wasn’t going to deter them from donning their trusted neck attire! The way you tie it says a lot about you, and acts as a symbol of self-expression. Whether worn in subtle hues or bolder, primary colours, there’s a perfect scarf and style for every man.

BEGG & CO ARTIST EDITION - MICHAEL WALL

Begg & Co Artist Edition - Michael Wall

The Begg & Co Artist Edition was launched with British painter Michael Wall. Best known for his abstract large-scale panels, the London-based painter translated his signature aesthetic onto Begg & Co woven blankets. Produced as a special limited edition collection, with only 10 pieces made for each of Wall’s 4 designs, the colourways mirror his practice of combining characteristically bold primary tones with softer hues and nearly-nude pinks. The collaboration was featured in exclusive window displays at Fenwicks of Bond Street, London and Lodenfrey, Munich.

Mats Klingberg of Trunk visits Begg & Co HQ

Begg & Co have been building a strong relationship with Mats Klingberg, the Swedish-born founder of Trunk Clothiers since his independent store opened in 2010. Situated in Chiltern Street, London, it has grown to be one of the most dynamic and yet understated menswear retailers in the capital.

With an in-depth knowledge of the industry, his brand has become the place to visit for a refreshing new approach to male dressing – and as a stockist of Begg & Co’s scarves, we were delighted when Mats travelled to our mill in Ayrshire to see how things are made here in Scotland.
