This is tongue in cheek but am interested if anybody knows the rules around this?
I fly a lot and at one airport I am often asked to remove my buff, I actually wear it because it keeps my long hair out the way when I climb and then leave it on cos its a cool look and easier than messing about. Clearly it's material and not going to set off alarms. It's like a turban but I technically don't wear it as a religious thing. At heathrow I never have been asked to remove but at this regional airport they always ask. The inconsistency is a worry.
But anyway the question I have is what more could I be concealing in a buff versus down my trousers? And thankfully nobody asks me to remove them. So what's the difference? Does anybody understand the logic??
