GQ’s calling it NYFW’s Best Accessory for a Steal and Snoop Lion keeps a blue one hangin’ out his back side, but only on the left side (yeah, that’s the Crip side), but this FW trend is one I’m not sure you’ll see beyond what the lenses of Tommy Ton, Justin Chung and Justin Bridges catch outside of shows to come—at least not the way Zoolander was wearing it on the runway.
If it picks up for the everyday man, consider me corrected, but how bad would you want to hit a dude wearing a bandana around his neck while trying to sell you life insurance (yes, the everyday man is a life insurance salesman in this situation).
I’m in agreement with GQ on this one, though. Matty Sebra states, “..great style doesn’t have to mean spending a fortune,” and he’s right. I have a black bandana that I reggally wear as a pocket square, much like the dude Nicky Woo up above (Photo courtesy TSB via Google image search)*. I bought it for a few bucks at a grocery store in State College, Pa, and it looks good with pretty much every jacket I have, given the right compliments.
Closing statement: Buy a couple bandanas and do whatever the hell you want with them, because as a condescending WSJ article stated earlier this summer, we should just wear what we want and not attempt to echo style blogs. ‘Cause who the fuck wants a role model anyway?
*menswear bloggers with no rep gotta start somewhere right?
