Fashion Faceoff: Keffiyehs

Fashion Faceoff: Keffiyehs

David Beckham showed off his black and blue keffiyeh (typical Arab headdress) in Madrid, Spain earlier this month, while Colin Farrell paired his black and white keffiyeh with a newsboy cap in Bruges, Belgium last month.

Who wears it best? DAVID BECKHAM or COLIN FARRELL?

  • Beep

    David!…
    but the entire of Scandinavia is wearing them!.. LOL.. Europe perhaps too..
    they are the biggest thing in fashion right now since earrings..

  • You/Me

    Colin for me anyway. He’s got the vibe going.
    Everytime I look at David I think of his wife, yeck.

  • el_enano

    David !!! I like the way his hair and expression for it goes really modellish

  • mel

    Becks !!! Looking good.

  • mrs grated cheese

    I agree with tanique, there’s no winner, both are hot.

  • LadyA

    Daddy Becks of course :)

  • Shaking My head

    Colin

  • Alicia

    Becks all the way, Colin looks like a poser

  • guessing

    not trying to isert religion here.. but i hear jews find this scarf offensive.

  • Summer

    Definitely Becks!

  • Mia

    Why would Jews find this scarf offensive it’s only a piece of material you can’t just tell us something and not explain it..?

  • sus

    it is a win win fore us both are hottis

  • Ely

    Colin without a doubt. He looks so friggin sexy

  • Samara

    Colin, bloak and white kefiya is classic chic and for a good cause. Free Palestine!

  • guessing

    #13 Mia

    it is just as Samara (comment# 16) has positioned it. Keffiyeh is the most common clothing piece worn in Palistine. I assume that’s the reason some find it offensive.

    anywas, I think both pictures look as good. Although I couldnt clearly see Beck’s.

  • diane

    They both look like trendy idiots.

  • Cynthia

    David, of course!

  • Sayini

    Becks!! Hands down! Way hotter than Colin..

  • rayray

    it’s funny because arabs are know to wear those especially in the winters to keep warm, but now it’s the fashion, if an arab war one of those in the street in America everyone around him would be scared

  • rayray

    and i agree with Samara, FREE PALESTINE, i think it’s kind of nice these two famous men are wearing keffiyehs because it shows people who wear them aren’t always terrorists

  • Nichelle Denise

    Becks….

    Nuff said…

  • [Fug Face [x]]

    wow. look at all you horny women! lmaoo I bet there was alot of finger-sports being played to those two photos.

    I bet at least one women on here lubed up there mouse and tried to play gynecologist! come on.. who did it?!?

  • Elizabeth

    gosh, what a way 2 ruin a simple of freedom fighters and Arab pride by turning it into cheap style. Anyway, Beckham rules this style hands down, Colin needs 2 clean up.

  • jen

    becks baby!!!!!

  • Stella

    I’ve been wearing my keffiyeh as a scarf for two years now. I had my brother get them for me when he was station in Iraq. I love that it was so different. Colin’s keffiyeh is more traditional and like the one I’ve got but I love Beckham’s one. It’s so fashionable. Does anyone know where you could get one?

    P.S. I didn’t know that wearing keffiyeh made a political statement. Now that I know, I’m going to wear it more often. Free Palestine!

  • rony

    Keffiyeh?
    This is sooo not cool, and doesn’t make any one look hot!
    Wearing a piece of clothing symbolising the most murderous group of people today is just stupid.
    That is not to say that all the muslims are terrorists, but 99% of the terrorists are arab-muslims\muslims and they do it in the name of allah (god).
    These men make me sick to my stomach!

  • NM

    Keffiyeh?
    This is SO cool, and makes the both of them look hotter!
    Wearing a piece of clothing symbolising the resistance of the most oppressed people today is just awesome.
    That’s not to say that all jews are nazis, but 99% of the occupiers are israeli-jewish\jewish, and they do it in the name of Yahweh (g-d).
    These men make me incredibly happy!

  • Gentile Zionist.

    Hey idiots there is no Palestine! Israel was re-named Palestine by the Romans and has no Arab connection. Jews were the first to be called Palestinians. There has never been a Palestinian people, country, culture or language. Palestine is free now ibecause it’s back to it’s original name; Israel!
    The reason Jews and the rest of us good people hate these things is because terrorists wear them. It’s nice to know that several people here support the murder of Jews. How proud you must be to support the blowing up of innocent little Jewish children. You are all stupid welfare losers! By the way Beckham’s paternal grandfather is Jewish so I doubt he supports terrorists, it’s only a fashion statement to him. Hey Stella I hope you get your ass kicked for supporting terrorists stupid bitch! FREE ISRAEL FROM EVIL TERRORISTS!

  • Gentile Zionist.

    NM: The only occupiers are the Nazi Islamofacists barbaric Arabs. Israel is the homeland of the Jews. You are a terrorist pig who needs to be deported back to your filthy stinky homeland of Arabia!

  • cj

    are Keffiyehs only for guys or is it considered trendy among woman aswell??

  • denise

    cj-

    Yes, girls wear them as well, but the trend was overplayed before either of these two ever heard of keffiyeh.

  • angier

    Can we leave the political matters out of this? One man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter, so basically, that debate will never end. Whatever goes on between Israel & Palastine (or fellow Arabians for that matter) have nothing to do with the question at hand. I think it looks better on Farrell, but I like Beckham’s pose & the colour of his keffiyeh better. End of story.

  • rony

    to NM and others who think like her\him:

    First, calling the jews nazis is an ugly combination of cruelty and foolishness, since 6 million jewish people were systematically murdered by the nazis.

    “the most oppressed people”… by their leaders, hahaha!
    Israel left gaza over a year ago, didn’t you hear?

    “the occupiers are israeli-jewish\jewish”… and that is the reason for:
    The 9/11?
    Suicide bombers in Madrid? London? the Philippines?
    The killing in Sudan?
    and the list goes on and on.

    Yeh, the glorious arabs\muslims will bring the world as we know it, to an end.

  • WENT.MILLER.4EVER

    Wearing a keffiyeh is very similar to wear swastika!
    A revolting “fashion item”.

  • WENT.MILLER.4EVER

    to wear = to wearing a

  • jimma

    The keffiyeh is a sign of Palestinian liberation, donned by members of the population to demonstrate solidarity with the cause. The fact that such an article of contentious political significance has become fashionable amongst many who have no clue as to its meaning makes 2 statements: either the wearer is anti-Zionist, and perhaps anti-Jew, or he/she is a moron who should check his revolutionary fashion guide before wearing the “cool” scarves.

  • WENT.MILLER.4EVER

    I agree with jimma, but the keffiyeh is a not sign of Palestinian liberation – it’s an arab piece of clothing, including palestinians.

  • don

    NONE.
    WTF IS THAT UGLY RAG AROUND THEIR NECKS???
    IF THAT’S THE NEW TREND, I CAN OFFER MY OLD DUSTER AS A KERCHIEF!
    LOL

  • cj

    denise…

    thanx for replying!.. i wanted to get one and rock it with black skinnies or something but i just wasn’t sure..now i have to find it..never saw that in any shops around here…thanx again….

    btw can you guys stop with this debate?? there are lot of people who would just like to mix and match their styles with authentic outfits of other cultures and just enjoy their time..

    oh and… i say Becks wore it better!

  • FancyPants

    COLIN COLIN COLIN

    Becks sucks!

  • CJ you’re stupid

    CJ you’re just plain stupid… read the debate instead of wanting to wear something you don’t even know the signification of.

    Why are people so stupid these days, just wearing something because a celebrity wears it and they don’t even know what it stands for…

  • vicky

    No doubt Becks !! He is the most stylish celebrity !

  • NM

    Uh oh…I think they’ve e-mailed the ADL, and recruited the “Israeli Propaganda Machine”…everyone take cover! Jared, I’m sorry…but I think your comment section is about to get spammed by every Zionist out there!!! Eeek! Oh well, bring it!

    Gentile Zionist: I think you are the one who needs to be deported to your beloved “Israel”. I mean, with that moniker of yours… GO! Make Aaliyah! I promise, we won’t miss you! Now if you could only show that much devotion to the good ol’ USA…that would be something! (Don’t you guys ever wonder why every Zionist sits here and enjoys the fruits of America while yelling about deporting everyone else, yet they won’t ever shut up about Israel??? You better get on your knees and kiss our American ass for supporting your country, which has caused us nothing but grief!)

    Rony: It’s unfortunate that you couldn’t see the blatant racism/xenophobia that your moonbat diatribe consisted of…so, I decided to show you what it would look like if I just replaced your words…like a nice clean shiny mirror held up to your face. Sometimes, when we are so blinded with hate, we can’t see how ugly we’ve become.

    This is America…we can wear whatever the EF we want to! Whether we know what it means or not. You don’t need to know the significance of a sock to wear it. You can wear it because you freakin’ well please! Ain’t no zionist foo’ gonna tell me what I can and can’t wear!

    KAFFIYEHS FOR EVERYONE!!!

  • cj

    what the fuck? just because i dont give a fuck about what some “religion” groups think, does NOT meant i’m stupid…sorry but its not like i’m not gonna wear somethin i like just beacause some jew would get offended…i really dont care! infact i’d wear it on purpose! hahahah!

You better get on your knees and kiss our American ass for supporting your pathetic country, which has caused us nothing but billions of dollars, the blood of our soldiers, and immense grief!) “G-d” is calling you to Mt. Zion, O’ Gentile Zionist!!! Don’t keep him waiting!!!

    To the rest of you Israeli spokespeople in disguise: This is America! We can wear whatever the EF we want to! Whether we know what it means or not. You don’t need to know the significance of a sock, tie, necklace, thong, to wear it. You can wear it because you freakin’ well please! Ain’t no zionist foo’ gonna tell me what I can and can’t wear!

    KEFFIYEHS FOR EVERYONE!!!

  • WENT.MILLER.4EVER

    cj,
    According to that logic, will you wear a swastika???
    same thing imo.

  • cj

    ^i think “white power” and that stuff seems more racist to me than wearing keffiyeh…since not everyone wearing keffiyehs are terrorist..i mean yes if i had to stereotype a terrorist..i would definately include his headscarf BUT….i wouldn’t think of keffiyehs as the motif of terrorists unlike swastika which is accepted by Nazis and IS the symbol those who killed millions of innocent people who basically wasn’t considered “white”…

    seriously i can’t believe i’m involved in this debate since i have very little knowledge or opinion in political things…

  • simon

    david beckham of course!!
