Questions:

1- Will a shemagh fog your goggles like crazy?

2- How much fabric (measures plz) do you need to make a nice "combat" shemagh (tight, not too long but not too short)?

Answer:

1 - Depending on how you wear it, it may or may not. If you wear it up to your nose (like in the above pictures) it will fog. Even on colder, or less humid days it has been a problem. However, if you wear it more like a scarf, around your neck, and no higher than your mouth, you won't have any issues with fogging that you wouldn't have had before.

2 - A standard shemagh is 1 metre by 1 metre. If it's good enough for them, I'm sure it's good enough for us.

He used Imageshack to host his picture.

It might have been from some thing in the trash. I got the message when the page was still loading.

I feel like an idiot asking around town for one of these things:

How exactly do you properly pronounce shemagh?

She-mag

She as in sheep.
Mag as in magazine.

That's how I pronounce it. I could be wrong.

According to this: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/shemagh
it's more like "shaMAG."

I speak Arabic, I'm from Iraq.

A more proper spelling would be this: Shmagh

There is no "e" after the sh. The whole word is one syllable.

You just say shma first, the a being like the a in "barn" or "fart"

Then the ending letter is an Arabic letter that doesn't exist in English. I have never been able to teach any non-Arabic person how to actually say it, it is represented in English using the "gh"

The closest you can get to it is pronouncing it as a g, though it's still pretty far off.

So just say shmag




Oh and one more note. This is a good guide for only ONE way to wear it. There are bajillions of ways to wear it. Actually, each country has a specific way or set of ways. Sometimes we even attribute styles to specific people who made them.

A better set and more generic set of instructions would be the following:

1) fold it into a triangle
2) put it on your head in any way you want and wrap it however you want (you can just put it on without doing anything if you like)


That's it, there's no one way to wear it.
