I want to wear a tagelmust to keep my head cool during the summer. But I have a question about what it may mean to wear one.

Is it culturally insensitive(i.e. it is a special thing only certain people can wear/only during special occasions)?

Am I sending a message by wearing one?
I wonder that because I know wearing a keffiyeh can mean that you support Palestine.

This is what one looks like. I don't intend to cover my face with it though.



EDIT: Okay, the above pic might be a bad example, I'm thinking more like this:

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

I really feel like that would make your head warmer... go sombrero

It's strange that dark baggy clothes work that way but they actually keep you cool if the temperature is just oppressively hot. The kind of hot when being naked doesn't even feel like you've taken enough clothes off.

If you must support israel, you could of course just carry a bagelcrust.

It's not that I support Israel, I just don't want to deal with that message. But mostly I think a tagelmust looks cooler.

I personally this it's a great idea! They definitely do serve their purpose and also make you look incredibly wise.

tagelmust? cooler than bagelcrust?

If you drop some cream cheese on a tagelmust, you look like a slob!

put it on a bagelcrust, and you have good taste

Surely it doesn't get that hot in Oregon?

On the plus, put on a charming Oxford accent and pretend you're Lawrence of Arabia.

What, so I can pretend to be a Brit complaining about the wheather?

It's just too keep my head and neck cool. It doesn't get unbearable, but I figure I'd pick something up from people who know a thing or two about staying cool in hot weather.

EDIT: I'm not worried about judgments. Portland is a pretty liberal town.

don't hate, educate.

I made that saying up just now, it's mine, no one else use it.

and yes, Oregon summers are like walking into purgatory and approaching hell while carrying a blazing sun on your back like some beacon of suffering.

it seems to me like they are more avoiding sunburn than it actually being that much cooler. that would explain why they roll and wrap a few times to get it standing further off the face than wearing a much smaller piece of cloth. i highly doubt you will be any cooler wrapping those around your head. just put on some sun screen...
