Take for example, the movie Seven Psychopaths, Christopher Walken's character, Carmichael, is hardly seen without an Ascot round his neck (and if you haven't seen the film yet, that's all I'm saying). But it looks effortlessly cool, providing a standout accessory that highlights his clever personality with just a touch of whimsy.

As you know, the ascot tie has been around for centuries. Widely popular in the early 19th century, its history is deeply rooted in formal wear, while some Englishman in the 1880's deferred to a more casual, loosely tied, daytime cravat.

Step 1: Lay Ascot around neck.
Step 2: Cross right tail over left.
Step 3: Form a loose knot.
Step 4: Stick both tail ends into shirt, twist forward, then give the knot an extra pouf.
Step 5: Voila, there you have it! Not a fan of the tucked in look? Let it all hang out, like the young man below.

Still not convinced that it's a cool look? Don't want to invest in an ascot? Do you wear scarves? You can also tie it the Ascot way and represent like Mr. Pitt below. Try something different, we dare you.
