Redlinks[edit]

These were added to the template by User:Coolgama - I am posting here for discussion, having removed most of them again.

  • Black (Gabardine) cap - Probably not. What makes this distinct from all the other black caps on Wikipedia? The link is incorrectly formatted. Technically it should be Black cap (gabardine), but Black cap (South Asia) would be more encyclopaedic.
  • Elaborate Turban - Dubious. Probably not. Unless it describes a very specific and distinct style of turban, I do not see how it is valid, as any turban could be called "elaborate".
  • Kolhapuri pheta - Yes. I've verified that this is a real turban. Happy to keep it in, please do create the article soon.
  • Mawali pheta - Dubious. I'm not so sure about this one. I see "main types are the Puneri Pagadi, Kolhapuri and Mawali pheta" from the Clothing in India article but if so - what does a Mawali pheta look like, and why are there barely any turbans coming up on a Google search for the phrase? Zero hits for "Mawali turban". That's weird for a supposedly "main type" of turban. I have also kept this redlink, but with reservations - if the article is created, it needs to verify that this is a genuine style of turban and what makes it distinct, with good references.
  • Mundase - Yes. I see multiple references to Indian headgear called the mundase. This is valid.
  • Mysore Peta - Yes! This article exists and is valid. No problems here. (NB: Should it be Mysore pheta in line with other 'phetas' for consistency?)
  • Mysore turban - No. This seems to be the same thing as a Mysore Peta. I have created a redirect, but duplicate links/redirects should be avoided in templates.
  • Woollen cap - No. This is a generic term describing any cap made of wool from any part of the world. At the very least the title should distinguish that the article is about an Asian woollen cap)

Redlinks are valid, but they should be to logical entries for a template, and ideally, should be created before adding to templates such as this - particularly with articles that branch out from existing ones such as Pheta.

Okay, I am removing Mawali pheta. Having carried out a more in-depth search, I suspect it is a hoax and no such turban officially exists. The only sources I can find are reprints of the Wikipedia pages, nothing independent or third-party. ZERO Google hits for alternative spellings such as "Mawali peta" and "Mawali turban". I will ask over on Talk:Clothing in India as well. Mabalu (talk) 11:44, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
