Wrap It Up

Personally one thing I have always had the desire to attempt to wear was a head wrap. I have always been drawn to them visually, but i tend to only see them worn by women. Rarely do I see males wearing them and when I do they look just as good.
Scarf - Thrifted
Oversized Waist Coat - Thrifted
Henley - UO
Belt - Thrifted
Chinos - AA
Shoes - Thrifted
Bag - Thrifted
 Middle Eastern, Central Asian, South Asian, and Sikh turban wearers usually wind it anew for each wearing, using long strips of cloth. The cloth is usually five meters or less. However, some elaborate South Asian turbans may be permanently formed and sewn to a foundation. Turbans can be very large or quite modest dependent upon region, culture, and religion.
A head wrap s a great way to really bring a dull outfit to life just as much as any other accessory. The head wrap if you think about it is really just a pretty simple accessory, but how you put it together will make a great difference. I just used a scarf that I picked up at a thrift store, the color tones and pasterns of the scarf are perfect for the earthy tones I was looking for so I figured it would suit best for a head wrap piece as well. I greatly encourage my fellow man to give them a try like I always say "style has no sex nor color" if you're confident and comfortable enough to wear a garment, than why not?.
This leather bag is probably one of the best pieces I have discovered at a thrift store yet. I usually tend to use Satchels or Man Purses for school and days out around the town. Mainly because I have it hard to find bag packs that accompany my style. The size of this bag is just right, its not to big and its not to small which makes it really easy to carry my essentials with out it getting heavy, bulky, or loosing its form.
I was somewhat forced by a friend to purchase this shoes/sandals. No way am I a fan of wearing sandals or anything where my feet are somewhat exposed. But I have grown fond of these shoes, the amount of comfort is incredible its as if I have nothing on my feet. I surely will not regret this purchase and will bring my friend along with me as I shop more often.
The Henley shirt is a purchased I made probably 3 years ago. But never wear it, reason being it was buried away deep into my closet. What drew me to this Henley was definitely  the Chinese style collar detail. Most Henley tops I run into tend to just be a straight button up from a V cut.
