A Luxembourg City man and member of the country’s largest scarf-appreciation club has lost his scarf, according to sources who observed him crying at work.
“My scarf is my everything,” said Michael Saetang, a member of the Scarf Bros. since 2018. “Designer trousers, my beautiful silk ties, even my carefully matched shoes and belt mean nothing to me.”
The loss occurred on Wednesday when Saetang stepped out of his office in Cloche d’Or to purchase a sandwich, he says.
“Honestly, I never take off my scarf, but it was surprisingly warm yesterday,” he says. “I must have removed it, just for a second, to let my neck breathe.”
As soon as he returned to his office and realized what had happened, he called 112, 113, and a third and secret number that connects callers to a special police unit that responds only to scarf-loss emergencies.
“We don’t want to jump to conclusions,” said police spokesperson Marco Trausch. “But it’s possible Mr. Saetang’s beloved neck accessory was stolen by a gang of scarf thieves and is now on its way to some faraway country where it will be sold to a warlord or a prince.”
