Product Description


A classic silk scarf should be soft, thin and slippery — so you can wrap one around your neck, close up your jacket and rotate your head and neck all day in draft-free comfort, without chafing. These luxurious 100% natural silk scarves are handmade of a soft, dense weave that’s perfect for riding. No synthetic fiber is warmer, softer, stronger, or more durable.

Silk provides maximum comfort across every temperature range: warm and draft-blocking when cool, and refreshing when worn wetted during hotter conditions. When you’re traveling this durable silk washes perfectly in any sink, too — even with a simple bar of hand soap.

The Standard Scarf model is medium weight silk of sensuous softness, and measures 14"×72". The Competition Scarf model is similar to the standard model but two layers thick, and it is a bit narrower and shorter. It measures 10"×60". Both are premium quality, long lasting pure silk that will keep the wind, rain, dust and snow from blowing down your neck, and will pack away ultra-small inside any pocket.

No other neckwear works this well, or looks this cool.

Aerostich Customer ServiceReview by customerservice
The silk scarves can be cleaned by sending them to a dry-cleaner, or by following the included instructions and handwashing with a mild detergent. Some riders choose to not wash them at all and build up a natural patina... YMMV. (Posted on 11/6/18)
finally got my scarfReview by Robert
It took a while but I finally got my scarf. I love it. Road in 40 deg F. weather two days ago and it was great. I love how it stops my razor stubble from rubbing raw on my collar. Two issues. I should have been notified that it was back ordered and would have to wait a month for delivery. Second it says dry clean only on the scarf tag but your printed information include states handwash only. What should I do? (Posted on 10/13/18)
Silk scarvesReview by Mike
Very nice quality and very soft. Works great in the cold weather. Also will be using it in summer for cooling. (Posted on 1/21/18)
Why did I wait so long?Review by 240ADV
I don't know why I waited so long to buy this. Even in 92 degree weather my neck stayed cool. It's so soft and helps the comfort level around my neck. (Posted on 6/21/17)
Aerostich Standard Silk ScarfReview by RJ
It's too early in the year to be riding here but I purchased this for my riding friend to protect her neck and keep her cool on long rides. It's a very soft, smooth scarf and she loves it. (Posted on 2/25/17)
Silk tieReview by FinkFarm
While riding in the cooler/colder days I would always catch a draft at my neck, wrists, ankles, etc. I ordered this to eliminate the draft at the neck area. Not only does it do that, but the jacket I wear (non aerostitch) is rough at the neck. It protects my neck skin from these rough areas of the jacket, and stops any drafts. Carry it with me all the time now. Don't know about the summer cooling of it when wet, but look forward to trying it this coming summer. (Posted on 12/3/16)
Welcome gear additionReview by Rick K1200RS
Executive summary: Two thumbs up!
I dithered back and forth on dropping $27 for a silk scarf. I'm very glad I placed the order! In warm weather, it's a good way to ride with the jacket zipper opened a bit without worrying about bugs scooped into the jacket (it's happened!). In cooler weather, it keeps cold air blowing into the jacket. And, of course, it makes a smooth surface against my neck instead of a now-pilling jacket color. I worried about the length until I just doubled the scarf to make it shorter, wrapped it around my neck, and stuffed the tail through the loop formed from doubling the scarf. (Posted on 6/24/16)
Serves 3 important purposesReview by WillieB
My Aerostich Std. Silk Scarf has three important purposes: 1.) Here in Upstate NY it works like a packing to seal out uncomfortable air leaks. 2.) The slipperiness of silk is like a lubricant between jacket and neck thereby improving visibility. 3.) It makes me look awesome!
Increased comfort, safety and good looks, who couldn't use a little (a lot?) more of that? (Posted on 10/31/14)
Practical & Comfortable Review by Michael
All season, all purpose, and all right! Reminds of the race between the two silk worms, it ended in a tie.
Good choice for everyone. (Posted on 8/27/14)
yet another good productReview by David
Got it just in time for a three day trip through the mountains. It was hot and dusty during the days, cold at night and the scarf was so comfortable I don't think I ever took it off, even slept with it on. Its a great interface between you and an unlined jacket. But the toughs on the chrome cruisers don't wave at ya!? (Posted on 7/4/14)

Mil-spec 'big H' history...

Silk was so important that its trade probably changed the world history more than any other technology. The famous 'Silk Road' connected Europe to the Far East during the middle ages, and this brought together global knowledge that advanced civilization and helped begin the renaissance.

Strategic military considerations, not demand for fashionable garments, caused the establishment of this trade route. During the middle ages front-line soldiers lived, traveled and fought wearing coarse tunics and outer uniforms. Silk scarves allowed soldiers to close their protective battle (and outdoor survival) garments tightly around their necks without chafing or discomfort, so they could fight better and travel farther. This was a true battlefield advantage.

As recently as World War I this remained so. Early planes and cars were all 'open cockpit'. Soldiers still lived and campaigned outdoors for weeks at a time, and this meant wearing heavy gear. After the war civilian pilots, race car drivers, motorcyclists and movie idols (Douglas Fairbanks, Errol Flynn...) further enshrined silk scarves as garb synonymous with bravery, courage and endurance.

Then airplanes and cars became enclosed and military dress adapted. Soft, slippery scarves became unnecessary. Silk's swashbuckler history and function was not only forgotten, it became a laughable cliché. Something only worn by old men.

The last vestiges of the silk scarf's centuries-long military role evolved into the fashion of men wearing neckties with their sport coats, blazers and business suits. Silk scarves had become decorative neckwear. (Now you know where neckties come from.)

That's sort of a sad ending for such an important habiliment -- except once again riders have rediscovered how great these scarves work when worn with modern riding gear closed tightly around one's neck. Once you've tried wearing one, you'll never look back. Make some history.
