These types of shawls are known as "pashmina" in Spanish.

They are made of a certain type of wool and men are beginning to use them over their shoulder... very fancy.

You can leave the term as is since it is known throughout the fashion industry (in Mexico, at least) as pashmina.

Good luck!

Los hombres que usan ésta prenda de vestir son reconocidos como hombres de un estatus económico y social muy alto ademas es un símbolo de moda, elegancia y de poder. Esta prenda está hecha de un material muy parecido al cahmere.
La frase en la que aparece la palabra pashmina, podría ser traducida de la siguiente manera--el varón "pashmina". Puesto que la palabra pashmina es traducida al español de la misma manera.
Buena suerte.
