Dressed for the cold or a holdup


Have ski masks ever been cool? When I was a youngster in upstate New York, I wore a knit ski mask on a few frigid days, until I was told I looked like a dork. Better to have my face fall off than suffer those insults. The design on the mask in the top photo is interesting -- it looks like war paint. And the man's tongue is peeking out through the mouth opening, adding to the cold warrior look. The contemporary masks seem to concede there is no looking cool wearing this thing, so let's be ridiculous. Turn every frigid day into Halloween. Just don't forget how you look when you go to the bank.
