ok, but it looks ridiculous.. is that suppose to keep the sweat off yr head?
It may look ridiculous to you & perhaps regular Thais as well, but in the old days, that traditional style of Thai headgear may served everday purposes.
Once upon a time, the Chinese men used to have a long ponytail & half shaven head, sure as heck ridiculous in this day & age, while the Borneo dayaks used to collect their enemy heads for collection.
But that was in the olden times, so it seems ridiculous to new 21st century generation.
