Once again: we are here to discuss the keffiyeh as a fashion item. We will not be having political debate. Your cooperation and understanding are appreciated.
some of the items you described i do not know of..
so can we have a topic where we can discuss politics and fashion and keep this one solely for discussing how to wear keffiyah, what colours etc?

Well... as stated in the guidelines...

...
  1. Absolutely no discussions of politics is allowed. As we all come from different parts of the world with varying liberal and conservative views, an attack or offensive comment against another nation, a head of state or international and national policies of other nations only leads to disputes -- all of which have nothing to do with fashion.
So, we will not be having any political discussions on tFS.

We can, however, discuss the fashion aspects of the keffiyeh in this thread to our hearts' content.

Mao Cap, after general Mao

Sid Vicious With swastika t shirt
edit: actually that's Johnny Rotten, not Sid, and as a historical note, the shirt was designed by Vivienne Westwood.

Really? I went back to NY a few weeks ago to visit my family and I actually found people wearing them on the East Side of all places.

That's cool I was just making a statement based on what I observed. I actually never paid attention to the trend because I recently moved to Dallas and I haven't seen it over here. I wasn't even aware of it until I went home a few weeks ago the trend pop up on the Upper East Side....which is the last place I would expect to see them. The UES is the anti-thesis to what the scarf represents, whether politically or fashion-wise for that matter. Then again if a trend is hitting that neighborhood then it's probably a sign that the trend will be over until it's revived again later on.

Men usually wear them in this part of the world with what we call a 'Kandora'. The ones worn in my country (UAE) are usually red&white, beige&brown, or just plain white, but never black&white.

It is worn here in two different ways:

I saw a girl at my school wearing a scarf with a similar pattern, but I don't know if it would be considered a kahfiyah scarf. What is the "criteria" that makes a specific scarf a kahfiyah scarf? Does any scarf with a middle-eastern pattern count as one?

I have a Keffiyeh Israelit and I love it dearly. It's embroidered with Stars of David, blue on white. It was sent to me by an Israeli cousin who wears hers to protect against the sun and sand. I live in a cold climate so I wear mine for warmth. It gets lots of double takes and questions but I don't mind. I'm proud of my culture and it's such a beautiful item (as well as practical) that I know I'll never part with it.
