Gene Autry Bandana

Nearly all leading cowboys wore bandanas, and no bandito would be caught dead without one. Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn, Brad Pitt and every other cool actor sported the bandana in at least one classic film, and nobody ever snickered at them. Après-ride, the bandana can double as a headband if you’re Brad Pitt or Willem Dafoe or Cheech.
