Bufandas – Scarfs of the Latin South

Bufanda  – Scarfs of the Latin South

Bufanda means “scarf” in Spanish. Which raises an interesting question: Why do Latinos from the warm countries and cultures of Sur America need scarfs?  no somos de sangre caliente? ohhh… Okay, it can get cool in the evening, but is the growing excitement of “bufanda-izing” one’s wardrobe really about the weather or does it tell us something about what the hot men of the Latino traditions think about drawing attention to their sexy necks?

Some sites have taken their own swipe at the issue. Here is what La Mimi has to say: “We are witnessing a major fashion revolution where men are knotting, wrapping, twisting and looping their scarves. Let’s face it, men don’t have many accessories to play with. So why not use scarves to add an instant interest and color to your outfit.” (http://style.la-mimi.com/dress-your-body/how-should-men-wear-a-scarf/)

But as cool as this is, it begs the question. Is there anything special about why it is that Latin men like scarfs? Or should there be? La Mimi offers suggestions for the ways to wear a scarf, ranging from the Classic Flip to the Modern Knot. Yet I see nothing about the ways in which the often colorful flamboyance of the Spanish clothing motif has influenced this part of the finishing touches on men’s attire.

So, Is there anything truly Bufanda about Latin Men and Scarfs?
