What do you get the person who has everything? How about something that absolutely nobody needs.

A new line of inbred fashion headgear is hitting the online retail market thanks to some PR help from the queen of can-we-really-call-that-an-outfit?, Rihanna.

It's a $32 accessory that's part fleece, part bandana and it's called -- wait for it -- the flandana.

Judging by the site's media page, product description, and indie-inspired Youtube video (oh yes, there's a video), the flandana is an ideal head scarf for gangsters in high altitudes, wintertime bank robbers, and Canadian tuxedo-wearing hipsters who enjoy playing "Ring Around the Rosie" and climbing on jungle gyms.

The Flandana comes in a variety of classic bandana colors including red, blue, pink, black, and baby blue so that you, your family, your friends, and even your dog can all rock their own sad look of mom jeans, braces, and western face fleece.

Incidentally, this dog is really the only one (person, canine, or otherwise) who should and can pull this off.
