Blamo - That is a fanastic scarf - I love the colors, its very wearable. Congrats on being lucky enough to snag one!

I want to buy a new one and it looks like I better decide on one fast before they are all gone..

Anyone know of the navy or purple with ivory skulls scarf being available at any of the dept stores? I can't seem to get the Alexander McQueen website to work for me.

^ Have you tried any of the department stores like Selfridges etc. I'm not sure where you are in England but the saleslady at Harrods said that they will be getting the next season in so they won't run out. With the press release today stating that the house will got on they will continue with the scarfs.

I wanted one to treasure forever so I knew the best thing was to get one asap. I also want the purple with baby blue-ish skulls as well but at least I have the classic black with white skulls.

^I'm in Birmingham, we have Selfridges and Harvey Nichols but i wanted to secure the color i wanted by ordering online because when i've been into Selfridges they never have too much of a range of colors

^ there were heaps of different colours at Oxford St Selfridges last week. I'm sure that if you go into the Birmingham Selfridges then they can order you one that's stocked in the other stores. Same with Harvey Nicks. If they don't then they are either completely out of stock all over England or are just mean.

Just annoy them until they get you one. If you want something then you go for it.

The P&P on the McQueen website was slightly too insane for my liking.

FYI for anyone in Toronto - I was at the Bay/Bloor Holt Renfrew store this afternoon and they had two scarves left. Both green with mauve-ish pink skulls.

I got my ivory/black today. Somehow this scarf is a lot stiffer than my drk navy/blue skulls from a few years ago. I like it though. The shape stays where the other one is really soft and flowy.

Update for Londoners. On the weekend there were still some at Harvey Nicks and Harrods (I did a "drive by" looksee in those sections). Yesterday at Selfridges there were plenty as well.

^Wow, I don't know what the colours are supposed to look like, but the bright turquoise on grey is gorgeous!

Blamo, I love yours! I've always loved the special design scarves that still incorporate the skulls - I wish I could afford the maple leaf ones that are on eBay, but it's not going to happen.

I've been tempted to buy another of the classic scarves since his death, but I already a lot of them, so I'm holding off. I have so many that most of the colourways are similar enough to what I already have that it would just be silly.

I am totally kicking myself for not just sucking it up and buying the black on red dogtooth/magpie scarf from F/W, though.
