The Old School Scarf!
You wouldn't think how difficult it would be to identify the scarf worn by the majority of Number 2's. It was thought to be an Oxbridge scarf, worn by students at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities. Certainly the colours are right, but the stripes are slightly wrong.
This is the scarf worn by students at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities. The one difference between the one worn by Number 2 is that there is a navy blue stripe between the white and yellow stripes, unlike the one above. Certainly the above scarf is the closest to the one worn in 'the Prisoner' that I could find. Its quite on the cards that the scarf worn by Number 2 originated from a school outfitters, although this has never been confirmed over the years.
