Sure, Fashion Week is in New York, but that doesn't mean the East Coast is the only place allowed to present sartorial innovations.

Back in August, a couple of Cubs fans showed off their gifts to the world of fashion, but it turns out that Chicago was only just beginning to exhibit its ballpark-couture genius.

Then, on Thursday, this White Sox fan showed off with this brilliantly constructed headdress. Its verticality, texture, dimension and striking red, white and blue palate suggests a regal presence -- someone important and impassioned.

Is he a king? Is he a bull? These questions merely serve to underscore the humanity of the piece -- something constructed from seemingly worthless materials, yet showing its true value in the passion of the wearer.
