Pirate Bandana, Neckerchief N Head Scarve

 

Aye, Aye these head scarves can be worn by men, mates, rogues n' scurvy dogs as well as wenches. Real pirates can tie their own head scarf they don't need a pre-sewn do-rag! 

The two items that give ye the pirate look, be the sash n' the bandana. We make the right way, the pirate way. Extra large triangle of natural fabric, that you don't have to fold over. You need the extra large (33x52x33 inches) size so you can have long tails that dangle behind one ear. Not those tiny squares of polyester, which don't absorb any real sweat or go around yar head. We make them of 3 kinds of natural fibers: cotton, linen n' silk. Polyester, no matter how thin, doesn't keep ye cool, as it doesn't breathe or absorb sweat very well. 

Pirates wore bandana or head scarves to keep sweat out of their eyes n' hair out of the rigging. Some say that pirates wearing bandanas be a myth. In the few pictures of pirates n' sailors, they wore the bandana around their neck. The problem be that most images of pirates n' sailors be illustrated on deck or in town, when they wore them tied around their necks, but when they went aloft, they wore them around their head.
