    Do you wear trucker hats and basecaps etc. daily?

    What are your favourite caps?

    And more importantly, do you wear them backwards or forwards?

    When I wear a cap, like when I wear a t-shirt, they are usually plain and unadorned. Since I’m not a little-league catcher they would not ever be worn backwards which totally defeats the purpose of a brim. Except for Rocky’s cap, that I might wear reversed.

    I thought you meant capacitors. I am an orange drop guy myself. (Blue Bill beat me to it.)

    and even if you only wear it brim-forward, do you wear your Oakley‘s on the brim ?

    If you go to any Friday night HS football game down south you’re going to find 60%-75% with oakleys on the brim.

    If you look at old photographs from the early 20th century were they show an overhead shot of a large group of men in a vast crowd, there are thousands of photos where every single one of those dudes is wearing a straw boater hat.

    Just like the ubiquity of facial hair for the greater part of the 19th century.

    group think.

    by the way, wearing caps makes all your hair fall out.

    Not saying it’s a fact but I heard it somewhere ! :eek::oops::rolleyes:

    I don’t always wear a baseball cap, but when I do, it’s this one from Ebbets Field Flamnels.

    Bonus points for those who recognize the team.

    Being an Aussie we need straw , or other Cowboy hats, as you can get Melanoma in this land.
    The third photo by blowtorch is what I wear. It's serious, we've had " time to turn" transistor radio ads since the 70s to warn people tanning on our glorious beaches.

    If you wear a cap all of the time, nobody will know anyway! I wear a cap most of the time, if I'm not wearing a hat!

    Many years ago, I was at a Razorbacks game in Little Rock Arkansas wearing a John Deere hat. The guy behind me hollered I sure do like your cap! I didn't even look back, I just pulled my hat off and handed it back over my shoulder to him. I felt a cap settle on my head and it was a Razorbacks cap! I still have it!

    The last cap I wore on a regular basis. Almost 40 years ago, now.
