Men’s Fashion Embraces The Ascot

Following in line with neckwear’s recent resurgence in women’s wear, men’s fashion is embracing the ascot with exceptional rigor. For those not especially familiar, an ascot is defined as similar to a tie except that it’s typically made from a thicker, woven silk, worn wider and folded over. Tom Ford’s newly released ad campaign for fall features actor (of A Single Man fame) and model Nicholas Hoult in Ford’s namesake men’s wear line with a blue check scarf, tied ascot style. CNN’s Roland Martin is a dedicated fan (much to the amusement of John Stewart). Olivier Zahm snapped the editor of L’Uomo Vogue, Robert Rabensteiner, wearing one back in May.

Joshua Jackson likewise outfitted his Met Gala ensemble with an ascot. Meanwhile, Gucci has followed suit, showing slimmed-down versions on its Spring 2011 runway in Milan this week. Expect to see this trend gather even more steam in months ahead.
