I found mine from when I attended Jordanhill College in Glasgow (vintage now?!!). I remember we all wore them, there was quite a fashion for them for a while. We wore them with our maxi coats and flared trousers. I had another one in lilac stripes, not a real college scarf, but I think that's what they were all called in general.
They remind me more of students in the 50s wearing them with duffle coats, but I suppose this must have been a revival. Love the college emblem. Made from pure wool - had to be hand washed. Saw lots of folk who had put them in the washing machine (yes, we had them in those days) and they had gone a bit out of shape and the colours had run!!!
Are you having a bit of a do in the coming weeks? If so, I thought I'd help you out by introducing a few fun party games from the 50s to liven up the dullest of events!
These are from the vintage Citizen Housewife book which I wrote about ages ago, but I think these are very apt for the season!
Have fun!Love, Liz
