1.
Shemagh arab scarf or Keffiyeh. Traditional headdress made of a square scarf which is wrapped around the shoulder, head or face. Sold in camden town and also topshop.

Worn by young people today to show
a)that they're terrorists, they are covering their faces so you can't identify them
b)that they aren't terrorists but it's controversial so it's rebellious in a way
c)that they can look like their mates, cause everyone wears the skull scarfs
-you like a terrorist son, take off that rag
-it's a shemagh mummy
