Baby, it's cold outside. The mercury is finally dropping in the Northeast after what has been an unusually warm December—and that means leaving the house in a scarf. Though I have a collection of university, cable-knits, and tartans in wool, lately, I've been wrapping up in my Thomas Pink houndstooth rendered in an incredibly soft cashmere wool* ($300). The fringe tassels maintain the luxuriousness of cashmere while removing a bit of the fussiness.
Mr. Pink was an 18th century London tailor who designed the iconic hunting coat worn by Masters of Foxhounds, whippers-in, and huntsmen. The coat was made of scarlet cloth but was always referred to as a PINK, in honor of its originator. Meticulous attention to detail, exclusive fabric, and exquisite craftsmanship were the hallmarks of a PINK coat. Today, Thomas Pink carries on the name and tradition of Mr. Pink, crafting pieces like this houndstooth cashmere scarf which embody the British heritage of the iconic PINK coat.
