    My girlfriend's mother bought me as a joke gift for christmas this hugely obnoxious Patriots scarf. They thought it was funny and very ugly. Little did they know I would love it and I have worn it almost every day since Christmas. This includes wearing it to interviews for post graduate job positions at oh so prestigous institutions with my black suit, black trench coat, boring tie and loudly obnoxious red white and blue Patriots scarf.

    One morning my girlfriend was like "I cant believe your going to wear that thing to your interview." And honestly I went to every state in New England to interview and I got a compliment in every state in New England on my beloved scarf. Often times instead of talking about the same boring crap, we would talk some Pats on my interviews. These high flying, important guys would be like "If your a Pats fan, you'll fit right in here!"

    So lets give it up to my scarf. My new best friend. My Secret Lover. To my scarf, may he have a long happy life and may I actually not lose him within a few weeks like I have lost every patriots winter hat, pair of gloves and scarf I have ever owned. TO SCARF!

    I have a Patriots necktie and even socks, but no scarf. I live out west where scarfs aren't really needed, but neither are neckties.

    I don't know yet but I think I will end up doing very well.


    I think they purchased the scarf at Macy's but I also saw it for sale on ebay express.

    I will try to post a photo if I remember

    I bought a Pats scarf when I was in town for the AFCCG. I bought it Saturday because it was cold. I was a little disappointed because the ProShop had one I liked a little better, but I love my scarf anyways. The combination of the scarf, the on-field winter cap and my zip-up hoody are staples in the cold here.

    Ditto. I used to do quite a bit of hiring, and a young guy who showed up in a nice suit and a giant, fugly Patriots scarf would have impressed me with his confidence and sense of humor. Also, I would have been afraid that rejecting him would anger the football gods.

    Then again, I hired a guy who ended up going nuts after one too many nights on ecstasy, so what do I know?

    There are some dirty minds on this message board. HOW DARE YOU BESMEARCH SCARF LIKE THAT! Anyways here it is. Notice the red and blue tapering at the end, which I think makes it special.

    I'm quite jealous that you get to interview with that, and it is, indeed, a good time to be living in New England. It's borderline loud, and I don't think I, as a Pats' fan, could have successful interviews wearing it here in Denver ! LOL!

    I spent a lovely evening walking with a friend in downtown Denver. It's a nice city but Bronco gear is EVERYWHERE. All that Bronco stuff kind of ruined it...
