The Philly sweat towel, discuss…

    You’ve seen them, guys with sweat towels draped over their heads or grasping the nasty accessory like some big boy binky.

    I mentioned the sweat towel/rag in an earlier post. It’s not exclusive to Philly, but it’s definitely something I’ve noticed a lot of while wandering around this summer. 

    At this weekend’s Made in America concert, I could have taken enough shots of dudes rocking sweat rags to fill a coffee table book. Sweaty: Portraits of Perspiration.

    Why not? Apparently someone started a sweat towel Facebook page.

    One guy at the concert told me it’s better than sweating all over the place. But is it — really?

    So, I ask again. What’s the deal?
