    Ok I just took delivery of three Bandanas , a Union jack, a Pirate red and a pirate black...these are part of my master plan to look cooler by the second and conquer the universe...anyway...how the hell do I wear these things ?? Is there a trick? They just keep falling off, or make me look like I am wearing a bishops hat or something...please help me avoid fashion suicide. Ta.

    Tie a knot in each corner and pop it on your head.

    The white ones look the best.

    Fold it in half diagonally.

    Take the two corners that are at the end of the longest side and tie these behind your head and just tuck the flap in.

    Take photo of self and post on here.

    Buffs are good and easier then bandanas.
    Get a buff, put a pole up from the back of your bike with the flags on and take it when you go on tour.

    Thanks for the tips all.

    Let me just say here that I have been totally impressed with the web supplier i bought 3 bandanas from:becool:.

    www.bandanashop.com



    They were quick to deliver, the product is good quality and as described & above all they communicated with me privately via e mail immediatly when I hit the wrong tit and double ordered by mistake. Then after I got them they were quick to help when I asked then how to fit them and freindly and pleasant throughout. I highly reccomend anybody into bandanas to buy from the bandanashop.com

    ..just saying :laugh:.

    I use a buff in winter and love it, bandanas look a bit gay at best
