Where to buy a quality Shemagh?

Postby Cruiser » Sun Jan 15, 2012 1:20 am

I have a few shemaghs, and often wear them when I go out on my wilderness adventures, but the shemaghs I have seem way smaller and by far less quality than I see the troops and civilians wear in the Middle East, I know I could just go to a fabric store and grab some cloth and make my own easily but I wondered if there is a place that sells the real deal. I am from Irish stock and I burn like gasoline in the sun and like the cover they offer in the sun, I literally Burn, Blister, Peal, and Repeat I cannot tan at all. and I shave my head so they work great for covering my face, head and neck from the sun.

I like Keffiyehas and the best I have found are in Amman in Jordan and they are most excellent for Canadian winters even if you live in Toronto, Southern Canada where it rarely goes below -15 with the wind chill factor. If you can't make the trip to the Middle East then make the trip to Queen St. West in Toronto, the nations Capitol . Don't forget to kick a hippy or new age hipster when strolling by the Much Music building. If you have no luck there you can try Kensington Market near China Town.
Im reallly fuclimg pissed but fespite that I can still hit a tarfet at 1000m plus. mayVRVe bnot tonight but it qint beyond the wit if man. Nowhammy.

But seriously don't stop taking the flintstones chewable vitamins. You seems like a man of action and adventure, likely to be forced by the tactical situation on the ground to live on a non-diverse diet and a tasty, visually appealing vitamin may make a huge difference in your health status.

LOL they are my safety glasses for work, that was taking just as I was coming in, they are prescription so I have to wear them around until I find my regular glasses half the time.

Anyway, as Caliban pointed out to me elsewhere, your look is more Ali G than Bono
