I based it on something I saw in a movie only to find out later that I wasn't that far off. I have also found that they make great arming caps under helms, and for those of us light in the hair dept. on the top of our heads, they keep you from burning 
your head in the sun.

Heay now, I resemble that remark. After Leipzig the top of my head pealed
like an onion. Couldn't keep that darn straw hat on my head and forgot my
skull-cap [Incidentally, I've got to find documentation for that too. Any
ideas? I know that orthodox Jews wear something similar.]

Sounds like a good way to convert some of those loose ends that are just
sitting around taking up space.  I've been meaning to make rapier capes
out of some of them, but I can use more do-rags than capes :)

Heck, it might just escalate into an "annual headrag contest." Each
contestant could enter at least one rag. Winner take all.

Dang tootin'   Wish I had thought of it first.
