Anybody know wtf that thing is around Kaneki's neck when he's in Anteiku uniform?

I'm gonna cosplay him for Anime North and I have the whole outfit besides that obscure, dark red tie-thingy. Anyone know what the heck it is and/or where I can get one?
Thanks in advance!

Look up "cravat" or "ascot". Its like a tie but more old-timey and loose (they were extremely common wear in the 17-1800's). Its very easy to make one; a narrow rectangle of cloth with one end about an inch longer than the other to close it with snaps or velcro, sew it into a tube to make the neckband, take a piece of cloth for the bottom (I'm not sure just what shape that is, you'd have to play with that a bit to see what looks best but it would probably be a triangle or trapezoid) and pin on, make a little teeny rectangle for the tie-knot, wrap that around the top of the loose piece and stitch them onto the neckband, voila. Handsewing it would take a couple hours at most.

It's basically a short tie - known as an ascot. I mean, you could either make it or buy a tie and just cut off most of the tie to make it shorter. Making it would PROBABLY look more accurate, but if you aren't into sewing stuff, buying a tie and modifying it may work for you.
