Unconvinced? Consider the skinny scarf (or neckerchief) pictured here and haloed by the king of arrogant pomposity, Russell Brand. What purpose is it serving? He doesn't look of Boy Scout age so it is unlikely to be enforced couture. It was taken on London's Savile Row so we can't dismiss it as misguided Parisian flair. And as he looks the fashion conscious side of metrosexual, one may assume such an accessory could be used to add a bit of colour to an outfit without committing too much. But wait - his is black. So, that's not it. Nope, as suspected, it is purely for show. So let's call the show over here and start a 'Just Say No' campaign: "Need coat, need scarf, no coat, no need! "
