I Dont Have To Be White To Wear Chullos, Right?

Okay just a bit of an odd experience but i'll share it anyway. i am a person who likes to try out a few different styles and i got to the point that i now wear chullos, because its winter at the moment in australia. now if you dont know what a chullo is, basically its like a beanie but has earflaps and tussles at the end of each ear flap. some chullos also have an extra tassle where the pom-pom used to be, some have no tassle up their. some have stripes, some have zigzags, and some have very uniqie and different designs, they also come in a massive variety of colours to choose from. i wear them because they are comfortable, but i do realise that i get the big eyed awkward look from people passing by which really gives me the s***'s. and also i do notice a few men who actually wear them, but from my consensus, they seem like white blonde men wearing them. is it because i am brown skinned? i dont know but thats what i am thinking. i havent seen a dark person waer one before and i feel as if i am the only one (i am sure there are dark guys wearing chullos out there) but theya re so comfortable and keep my head nice and warm. i am different to alot of guys because i dont tend to follow trends because i dont fit in and i tend to mix up alot of colours and combine different looks together out of comfort, i dont try to be cool, i just wear what i find comfortable. but i feel that i am expected to wear this hip hop clothing thats out there just because i am not white, but i am not like that, in fact i am a die hard fan of old rock music, i am even into creedence or CCR. but just because i feel i am the only dark guy wearing these chullos, does it mean i am not supposed to? because i beleive people should be allowed to wear anything they like regardless of who they are. okay thats about it with my random rant. more random rants to come.

It's okay to wear chullos. They are very cute. If females can wear them why can't guys? Wear them however you like and tie the tassles if you want. You'll be warm and look great in your chullo.

@ vianca, thanks for the comment. but yeah i have learnt a little bit to be confident in what i do and your right it does make a difference. i think i'll continue to put my head up in the air and see how my surrounding enviroment reacts to a more confident me. thanks again.
