I completely don’t know. For me, Che Guevara was a revolutionary, free thinker and a complete rebel. I was just checking out his pictures on the internet and I found thousands of merchandises with his picture and name. It was shocking to know that, people adore him as a style icon of pop culture and wear him on their attire. I was just wondering, what exactly these, so called cool and hip, people know about Che Guevara? How Guevara became a part of fashion, style and trend? Then I thought, maybe it makes the fashion freaks feel as if they are a part of Che Guevara’s revolution, struggle or philosophy. Shockingly and sadly, the majority of the people were unaware of the real Guevara! Most of them mistook him for some pop star.

Then, I started wondering, when these youngsters are unaware of Guevara, why are they making his products so popular? I was also curious to know how anyone can follow person, about whom he/she has just heard some romanticized stories. What I know about the great revolutionary leader is that he represented intellectualism, rebelliousness, and communism. How he became so “fashionable” is still a mystery to me.

Well, if you are one of those who just want to make a cool fashion statement out of Che Guevara without knowing his history, I will definitely request you to check out how a medical science student became a martyr. Please, don’t be a mere part of this fashion arena, don’t idolize him, and don’t carry his legacy until you know this iconic rebel. May be, I am sounding like a fool, who is asking fashion buffs to actually relate themselves to him. But Che Guevara, the symbol and global insignia of youth across the globe is someone you should really go through wiki, at least once. Hope you will enjoy your Che Guevara accessories more after reading this article.
