Why don't you guys own a shemagh?

>Keeps your head cool
>adjustable to keep sun out of eyes
>protects your skin from the sun for expended periods of time
>cold air gets through
>niggas will compliment you when you walk down the street
>you can block yourself from being identified by cameras and people
>many different wrap styles to make whatever look you want
>feels good on the skin

Implying you guys have the confidence to wear one in public

>>8431017
I always though that might be a problem I have to deal with but actually I have never had any problem like this, but that might be because I have white skin. The most you might have to deal with is a really nervous store owner who will yell at you when you walk in. You might get pulled over but all you have to do is

>Am I being detained?
>Am I being arrested?
>Am I free to go?

Police have nothing on you, just show non-hostile intolerance and police are usually lenient because they feel the same way most of the time with the people they deal with, expect the non-hostile part.
>>
>>8431015
I'm black. I don't need any more of a reason than I already currently do to get harrased by the police. Especially living in NYC.
>>
I usually have one when I hike. Used to use a bandanna but shemaghs are larger and lighter and more flexible, so I find they work better.
>>
Also I forgot to mention, if you are walking around at night with one of these on it pretty much makes you immune to being robbed, people treat you like you are a nigger and avoid you, when you walk with one of these at night people will avoid you and try to stay out of your way because you look like the robbery. Like a sheep wearing wolfs clothing

>>8431045
Understandable,
>>

>>
>>8431053
People won't rob you because they think you're either a terrorist or ex special forces.

I know I wouldn't rob someone wearing one, unless it was a hipster girl.

'Kapra' which just means a rag or cloth, or 'pagr' if it's wrapped around the head in a turban type way.
Pretty common to see people wear them since they are versatile.

Here in the actual developed part of western civilization we strive for the best, a shemagh is more efficient, it not only provides the eye and nose shade a baseball cap does but only protects the neck and shoulders, while keep a cool temperature on the inside, where as a hat makes you look like a meth addict, a swag fag, or a trucker

protip asking the questions those shitty questions that you'll see being reposted by angsty teens on reddit and 4chan never work.

if you're courteous, they'll more than likely let you go.

if you keep acting like a fucking douchebag and asking questions to make it seem like you can "outsmart" the cops then they'll probably ticket you/ arrest you,.

Actually had one in my Amazon cart for the longest time, just never got around to ordering it. It's practical in my area, just very uncommon. I fear I'd look autistic. I have darker skin so maybe they'd just think I was foreign.
Overall just on the fence about it.
>>
>>8431661
>I fear I'd look autistic
If somebody look at you with one and thinks you're autistic that only shows what a douche-bag they are. Just as long as you don't try to look tacticool and have "military style sunglasses". The other end would be a hipster wearing it around their neck. Just wear is like Muslims do and you won't look autistic.

>>
>>8431685
I suppose. What do you usually wear with yours?

>>8431699
Just normal cloths, I usually wear shorts 24/7 (the basketball kind not the cargo/jean kind) and thin t-shirts because it's hot as fuck practically all year where I am
>>
>>8431708
So I could wear thin tshirts and slim fit jeans? Maybe tapered sweats with sandals or even just my workwear? (slim bdu, work boots, etc.)
>>
>>8431741
I think getting ripped on is heavily dependent on what type of people you live with in your community, maybe if you live around a ton of rednecks you might get called things, but you'll be fine. If somebody really confronts you about your fashion then that says a lot more about that person than your fashion, don't worry about what other people think or say. If you don't care when your best friends rip on you then you shouldn't when strangers do. Just be mature and composed, don't be "hey guys look at me" and you should be a-okay

Went out to Colorado for Sonic Bloom, the place we were staying at was hot, high, dry, and next to one well traveled dirt road so if you were walking around you were pretty much weathering a constant dust storm.

second day most everyone was walking around with a bandana or one of these, made for a really interesting collage of hippies, road dogs and ravers.

My point, if you're going to be going through somewhere where it's very hot/cold and dry, its okay to use one.

If you wear it over your head, you will be harassed and/or stopped by police and security. I wear one around my neck when it's cold and sometimes pull it up over my face if it's windy.
