including VAT, plus shipping costs (free shipping in germany)

the buco striped wool knit scarf by the real mccoy’s is based on the knitting pattern of military scarves worn by soldiers in ww2. this style of scarf sometimes called the ‘muffler’ was almost entirely knitted by civilians and family members to give comfort and warmth to soldiers during their service. the red cross issued booklets showing how to knit the scarves and then they were sent to the soldiers overseas. after the war the style of scarf became popular among motorcyclists. the bold two-tone stripe is synonymous with the outlaw biker scene of the 1950s. aesthetically inferring prison stripes, club members adopted thick two-tone stripe jerseys and other garments as a counter-culture rejection to the dapper style of pre-war motorcycle meet-ups.
