Movement Neck Warmer and Toque







(FYI - the jacket on the left is a 3-4 years old)
The Movement Neckwarmer looks like more of a chest warmer to me since it leaves the neck wide open. I guess it could be a cool look but it looks really impractical to me since it doesn't hug the neck and is so bulky. The Movement Toque isn't bad but floppy hats are more for teens/hipsters/boarders so another pass for me.

i tried this torque today. it looks good, but not like a $50 item. the neckwarmer weights 2-3 lbs - very heavy and it does look very impractical, a agree.

Last year I happened to find all of the super cute toques marked down to 10.00/12.00 dollars apiece. I can't remember what the full price was but they seemed pretty expensive at full price. Although, they were definitely not $50.00. They had a huge basketful. These toques were merino wool, and were really fun striped colors. I asked why there were so many and they had gotten kind of hidden under something else in the store. This was in December, and I was luckily looking for a warm hat.

I an a huge scarf wearer I live in Seattle, and I don't think this neck warmer would be very comfortable. It just looks heavy, and really $78.00?

I am curious to see how much the new gratitude wrap is going to be!

I think the chestwarmer looks foolish and the people almost seem embarrassed wearing them for the photos. I'm all for a nice neckwarmer, but this thing is huge, like someone knitted a sweater wrong and forgot the arms.

When I first saw this, I thought it looked really cozy and stylish. Then I saw these other photos and I agree with previous posters that it is rather loose and open -- regardless, it's $78!! -- that's way, way too much for a scarf. I'm sure we will see these on markdown.

Seriously, who comes up with the pricing??

I really wish they'd bring back the vinyasa scarf, but with the quality of the old vinyasa scarfs. I think a black swan herringbone one could be pretty....

This looks like a hood scarf.

I actually LOVE the neckwarmer. Bought it today. Yes, it's giant and quite heavy, but sooo comfy and warm for these New England winters!

@ Unknown - the photos are from the Keystone store - Indianapolis, Indiana.

the neckwarmers were almost sold out already at my store last night! Only 3 left in the light colour and like 4 in the dark! (and they said that's all that were left, I guess they'd been flying out the door like crazy).

I didn't buy one, but did buy the toque! Soooo cute worn the right way, with long wavy hair.

I bit the bullet and bought the black neckwarmer. It's pretty awesome. Apparently, yesterday people were grabbing stuff as it was coming out of the boxes at the Boston store.

The neckwarmers were sold out of my store in less than 24 hours.

I love the neckwarmer! Yes, quite pricey but so cozy! I love the open neck and there's so many ways to wear it! Also love the cabins - they are long, but since it's a raw edge, I'm debating on cutting it but I don't have a steady hand and will need a good pair of scissors!
