I was about to mention the Corleones but they are one impeccably suited bunch of gangsters. So obviously, I am stuck with the bandanna-donning Crips, Bloods and ghetto rappers as a point of inspo reference for my neckerchief.

Scarves are pretty huge on street style scenes these days. And there's a printed silk scarf casually lying around the house to support me on this bandwagon. Seriously, just casually lying around.

Some would initially credit scarves from the lasso-touting cowboys and cowgirls from the West. But we all have our own unique ways of visual interpretation.

Or perhaps, I am shamelessly siding with the latter here because my ego's still reeling from that frustrated dream of mine to become one of them. Okay, that's another topic. Out!
