If it's done in such a way that it covers the top of the head, it's called a do-rag. It's not Doo rag, or due rag, but simply Do Rag. Apparently there was a time when the hair on your head was called a "Do", as in Hairdo. This style is also called a "head wrap", or "bandana head wrap", as sold on Amazon. AND, any piece of cloth tied up and used in this fashion is a do-rag. It doesn't have to start out as a bandana.

A skull cap is a form of helmet, with a hard outer shell but may or may not be DOT approved. Half helmets are commonly called Skull caps. Other terms that seem to mean the same thing are "Brain Bucket", "Head Shell"

in doing this investigating, I was hoping to find a place where I fit in. But apparently not. What I wear is called a sweat beanie and doesn't fit into any other category.

I use a black marker to black out the logo and the EVS on the side. Because that's what posers do.



When looking for it, I call it my "head gear".
Ya well--I'm still gonna call my sweat beanie my skull cap.

So there.

Is it "do-rag" or "Do Rag"? It seems important now that you've pointed out our errors.

Then again, I see that you are ok with making up your own name of "head gear".


Do rag


Bandana


Skull cap


Head gear



Thanks for clearing that up.

Is it "do-rag" or "Do Rag"?

Or, could it be "dew-rag" or "dew rag"

I just realized that it's not even Thanksgiving yet, and we are already discussing stuff that don't really mater much at all. You can wear what ever you want to, long as it don't dork you up.

What next, socks? Skivvies?

evidently there is beard jewelry( not the Viking crap) but actual bedazzle style crap you can put in your beard now. Of course the pic I was showed by wife(teasing me to try the style out) showed men wearing one piece outfits, google men's one piece romper, I'd post a pic but have yet to adjust my pic settings ability since photobucket changed rule.

Well, the romper thing produced this:


Beard bling got this:


...and this:



Why do you need photobucket to post pictures from the internet? Just copy the address of the picture into the link in your post.
