Pip Robins brings Movember without the soup catcher

Cowls and scarves are cool for cool weather

Posted By on Wed, Nov 9, 2011 at 4:00 AM

Local online label Pip Robins Accessories (, run by Gillian Hyde, makes cowl scarves---all recycled, upcycled or reclaimed. Slip one over your head and you've got the warmth of a traditional scarf but without all the bulk, looping and tying. Men love them because they're not girly, and women love them because they can be a serious statement piece. Check out the ones with leather and studs, or the Movember-inspired Mustache Cowl (10 percent of the profits from which go to prostate cancer research). You too can participate in prostate cancer awareness without looking like a douchebag. Available now at Biscuit General Store and Love, Me Boutique and at the Halifax Seaport Market every Saturday, with prices ranging from $29 to $59.
