You probably feel happy wearing it, but I dunno about the folks having to see you wear it.


I dunno. It'd make me laugh.

I've been wearing one of these in the midday sun. A Ted Baker flat cap.

I wear a baseball cap in the car when the top's down and the sun's shining. It was $5 from Old Navy and it's just plain blue. Now no one needs to know I'm going bald.

I do NOT want to know how you've been "wearing" that young man.

And outside, in the midday sun? Pervert.

I don't wear one about town but for work or in the country I I'll usually wear a trekking type hat:

or a legionnaire type hat as it protects the back of my neck.

1. Buy small towel from the store on the corner
2. Soak towel in cold water
3. Place towel in freezer for ten minutes
4. Place towel on top of head

I'm a headgear kind of guy.

I have a Fedora, although I haven't had much occasion to wear it yet. I also have a cowboy hat (which I wore out in the sun this weekend) and a variety of baseball caps - and I could give a shit what you think about my "individuality". :lol:

Oh, and obviously, mostly an Arai Viper GT.

Drink can't be blamed for the hat. I lost this but I'll get another one, probably. I like hats. I've got one of those military cap things and a trilby but they're more for winter or bad hair emergencies.

Admit it. The reason you like the lyrics of the Arctic Monkeys so much is because YOU wrote them, innit?

Wool caps? Ear flaps? Doesn't sound like summer headgear to me.

Even though I am a slap-head, I don't wear a hat in the summer.
