Wear a bra on your head by: Leslie Bunder

Bramulke
Bramulke
What do you give the man who has just about every type of yarmulke you can think of?  We've had hand made, we've had crotcheted and now, it's time for the yarmulke made out of a bra.  Yes, the bramulke is here.
 
The story goes that one night, while being slightly drunk, "Ken" said the unspeakable: "A bra would make a great yarmulke" and before he could be told off by his fiancée, "Gigi", she agreed it was a good idea and they then produced 100 bramulkes for their wedding.
 
Based in Minneapolis, Bramulke.com offers its unique head coverings with prices starting from $11. Custom orders cost $24.
 
What the rabbis will make of this is anyone's guess? Should men wear clothing that is identified with women? Orthodox tradition says no. But what if it is recycling the item and turning it into something that is different from its original intention? A good question to debate with your local rabbi.
 
So if you are looking for a new head covering and something a bit different, then a bramulke is worth checking out.
