Fashion Tuesday


I found these "jeep style army caps" online, which I'll be ordering later today. I've looked and looked for this style of caps in local stores, but it seems that the only variety that the stores stock on their racks are the baseball style caps. These Internet caps just happen to be inexpensive too. If the same caps came with a brand name logo embroidered on, or a designer graffiti printed on the them, the caps would retail for $25 or more, and you'd only end up wearing them with the brim pointed off to an angle and acknowledged as a rapper. That said, there's absolutely nothing wrong with wearing plain unadorned generic caps. Among other things, bum-bye no mo money to buy gasoline. As it's been said in Texas, all hat and no cattle. Stetson I surmise. You might have noticed that the cap above is purposely frayed to match your best pair of puka-puka pants.



The most prized fabric for a cap in terms of comfort is corduroy, but it's also difficult to find. The corduroy material on this particular cap isn't the familiar ribbed type of corduroy, but it'll do.

I rarely wear hats. Wonder why so many men do. But David doesn't.

Ha! I think most men wear hats to hide their bald spot.

gigi- wearing hats might even retard baldspots. Nothing scientific. Btw, I know that tour guides advise bolo head visitors to the islands to wear hats otherwise they get severe sun burn.

Rowena- "hat's off," LOL. I used "hats and caps" for my own search. If you like you might try this site. http://www.e4hats.com/

Here in Singapore, the few times I've gone out without a hat I've regretted it because you can get sunburned easily here.

These are some neat looking hats. I like the unadorned, unbranded look as well. I'm tired of seeing huge logos on stuff.

Brad- I started wearing caps after construction work stopping in grocery stores. Didn't want people to look down on a person making twice as much as them.

Good move Ron. There are so many people walking around with their heads stuffed up their butts these days.
