Fantastic as always. You seem to have this knack for what I can describe only as banka-gangsta style. Banka because there's something classical and very conservative to the whole ensemble, gangsta because there's a subtle edge, a certain something that's just outrageous enough to give you a slight air of menace. Maybe it's the ring. Don't know.
Those Arab-inspired scarves were all the rage among my middle schoolers two or three years ago. Are you trying to revive the fad, or did it just take that long to migrate into Canada?
Those are keffiyahs, and while they may have been popular with middle schoolers two years ago, they've been popular with Arab men for several hundred years. Personally, I think they're quite interesting. If it weren't for their overt association with certain political causes I'd wear one myself. BTW, American troops wear camo versions with the same houndstooth-like pattern.
Yup, my kids don't wear em anymore, but i still wear mine, a black and white one. i'd love to get a hold of a camo one though!
Did these really become a thing among students? I remember them being popular among young adults in NYC in the early 90's, then again in the early aughts during the brief protester-chic fad. Odd to hear they've been adopted by kids so many years later.
I think the digitial camo (the military's new gray urban camo) version would be very SW&D-approved.
