Interested in purchasing the patchwork polka-dot scarf that's become a trademark of Gossip Girl bad boy Chuck Bass? You should act fast: it's almost sold out at men's store J. Press. "According to the J. Press spokesman: 'They have been around for a few seasons. It’s made from the silk remnants created during our tie making. No one really paid much attention to them and they weren’t really selling...When ‘Gossip Girl’ started to air, people came out of the woodwork looking for them—they have become some sort of power scarf.'" Now, the accessory is only available by phone (212-687-7642) from J. Press' Madison Avenue store. [The Moment]
