On the Che’s beret there is the star of Jose Marti – the hallmark of the Comandante, received from Fidel Castro in July 1957 along with the rank.
The inscription on the scarf reads: “COMMANDER ERNESTO CHE GUEVARA”.
This thick crocheted muffler copes with its main function – protection from the cold. However, wearing a classical coat with it will not work. It is also not suitable for formal meetings.
To just throw an attractive scarf around one’s neck is not enough. The scarf could get completely lost because of an ugly (precisely-wrong) tie. There are a number of ways to complete a muffler with a spectacular location around the neck.
The most common ways of its setting are:
a) classic, suitable for a short muffler, when one end is draped around the neck or wrapped around it, so that the ends of the scarf hang freely;
b) conventional single front knot, thus the ends can remain free in front, or thrown back;
c) tie knot, tied as a usual tie, the most suitable way to wear a muffler over the outer clothing;
g ) neckerchief knot – a common single knot, hidden under the straightened scarf ends;
d ) universal French or European knot, formed by threading the both ends of the scarf through the loop after it was folded twice and thrown around the neck.
The birthplace of the scarf is considered the Ancient Rome. The Roman soldiers used a scarf to protect themselves from cold.
In Russia a scarf of the type is called with a word derived from a French ‘cacher nez’, which means ‘to hide a nose’, for this article of clothing is designed to hide the lover part of the face and nose from cold.
