    Do you wear them? Find them played out or even a bit juvenile?

    I never really cared for the more outlandish color designs or cartoony logos some street wear brands usually manufacture; but I have been into some more customized team caps.

    Yes I wear baseball caps quite often but this is because I'm a huge fan of the Oakland A's.

    I really don't look that great in them, but I like wearing them.

    You definitely have to go with fitted. I have an ebbets field cap I really like. I'd also really like this Norse Projects cap:

    I've got an Etnies cap from 2007 and it is by far the best hat I have ever owned. I look great in hats with the right clothes. Plus, if I don't do something to my hair I wear it out.

    I have curly hair so if I dont put product in my hair it looks bad, so yes I do wear them. When I am in the city I usually wear a very worn hat that has sentimental value to me. When I am in the country I wear a Carhartt Realtree hardwood hat, its my work hat more or less. Ive worn them with shorts and polos and shorts and oxfords and so far I do not think it looks horrible. I feel that it some sort of bad ass affect. lol

    A lot of people on this forum won't touch caps with a ten-foot pole. I think on the right person they look alright, but that person is definitely not me. [​IMG]

    Those vintage style Cooperstown caps are awesome but real hard to find. Those are the only ones I like.

    I wear them, but only for pure function. I think the look in general is really lame- a high school boys' thing. And peel the damned stickers off them, for crying out loud! I always wondered what paragon of pop culture style started that retarded trend.

    But, being semi-bald and fair skinned, I burn to a crisp in the summer and freeze in the winter. So a decent ballcap with a sports logo is my go-to head cover, but only because I couldn't find a decent fitted one without a logo at a price I was willing to pay. For serious time outdoors, like working in the tropics, or hiking, or spending a day on the water, I wear a broader-brimmed hat, either a boonie or a Tilley, neither of which I like the look of much.

    The problem is that for most outdoor activities, which tend to be casual, a straw hat or fedora or anything cooler looks really contrived and out of place to me. For instance, if I went on a bike ride wearing a fedora, I'd look like a major dork, as would anyone.
