Cowboy Bandanas?

Anyone know if the real deal, big honking cowboy bandanas are made these days? I'm talking about the ones Gene and Roy use ta wear. The ones the bad guys wore when they covered up half their face to rob a train/stagcoach. Those ones. Seems like every bandana made these days is way too small. You can barely get one tied around your neck....... or maybe my necks too big. Dunno. Anyway, anyone have any idea where I might still get said garment? I wanna play cowboy on my KLR.....

You can find the bigger 27" ones on Amazon, not sure how big those old school bandanas are, but I think 27" is about as big as you'll find anymore. Of course,if you want bigger, you could just buy some material, cut to the size you want and find someone to hem it up for you.

+1 on the Military Shemagh. These are just like the old school cowboy bandanas, but made for the modern military in the style of the desert clothing of the middle east. They block sunlight, soak up sweat, and breath well in the heat. They also block winds in both dusty days and cold nights.

Wild Rags

If you want the scarf that cowboys wear then you are looking for what is known as a "Wild Rag."

Just google it and you will find lots of places that make them. They are usually made of silk.

I've got one of these bandana tubes. They keep shit off your neck, and you don't have to tie them.

Great in the summer and winter. One of the most useful and versatile pieces of gear I own.

+ 2 on the western wear stores, I buy the silk ones that are very comfortable to wear, nice and cool if left loose or warm if snugged up. I wear them religiously for hunting and riding.

Getting them shipped from the US seems to be a major adventure in itself.
Not just the amount of input effort but the excessive costs on top of that.

Could not find a source in Europe for a good quality one. Weird.

Global market?

I'm brooding on a backup plan.
Get silk, put wife through a needle course, let her hemstitch some.

What could possible go wrong.
