This has to be one of the most stupidest fads... This is worse then skinny jeans just for the fact that supposed "real men" are wearing them. And its about dam time I've said something about it you scarf wearing fucks. The real term for them is Shemagh and its was traditionally worn by middle eastern men on their heads.

A soldier wouldn't wear that shit, its hot as fuck in the middle east the last thing I want to do is wear a god dam scarf! I've personally been on close to a hundred combat mission do you think I ever wore a god dam scarf that looks like a table cloth around my neck.

They look like something my grandma would use as a doily underneath a lamp, but you tacticool guys decide to wrap it around your neck

I just wanted to personally let you guys know that while you stand in the mirror and arrange your scarfs to maximum cuteness before you go shoot some soda cans that yes you do look like an idiot. And trying to dress up for other men... really? You guys spend more time dressing up to impress other men then I do dressing up to impress beautiful women



I get why some would want it in the ME. Makes sense. But I was remarking to my wife the other day that every time you see a guy in a movie with one, he's always the "former military guy". It's like Hollywood has jumped all over this as the defining piece of clothing for anyone that's served. We were watching a horror movie, they were in a house..wtf was he wearing one for? Look for it now, I guarantee you won't miss it from now on.

Otherwise, hey..if we're going to culturally appropriate something from our time there, better it be a piece of clothing rather than the stoning of infidels.

1. I see these kids who play at airsoft

use them as part of their RLI kit these days....seen a few photos online thanks to a friend pointing it out....

Under the heading of everything old is new again there were a few guys with them back 40 years ago....but more likely it was a bush style hat or bandana for most guys...also they didn't require you to cut your hair to an eighth of an inch either....most guys had long hair by US military standards....I wore mine about three or four inches long on top and shorter on the sides....I didn't wear this thing but I did have a small towel that was OD green and I kept it wet in the field which kept me cooler..

If you wear it as part of a combat kit and it makes your life more bearable....have at it...if you wear it to be cool while you play at war with your pals in the woods on the weekends...also fine...who the hell am I to decide what makes sense when it comes to fashion?

And Hollywood? Fuck, those clowns thought Hurt Locker was a great film, it's so full of shit OED guys laugh at it like the Mystery Science Theater robots...

2. Well, I've sen SOF and others wear them...as have I. They help

I live in the desert. It protects your neck fairly well. I can see some doing because its tacticool, but it also works
