I have to agree. I normally just wear a CAT ballcap. Prize in guessing why.........

I wear baseball caps because they keep my hair back, but my ears get burnt:

So, Cowboy hats are my favorite except if it is really windy:

I wear a Berkley camo ball cap that came free when I bought some spin line. My step-daughter picked it out and I wear to show how appreciative I am that she didn't pick the pink one.

Default Re: Let's see your hat

I used to wear a bluejays baseball cap but i somehow lost it on the last 5 hours of my 3 week trip to hong kong/china. i had it with me on the very last plane ride and i dont know where it went after that.
Now i wear a Tilley widebrim hat (The LT6B). It was decently expensive compared to other hats but its quite comfortable, good quality and made it canada so i feel that it was worth it. plus i think it looks pretty sharp. No pictures of me wearing it ( though twfitw might have a picture of me. If you're reading this, feel free to post one if you got one.)
I chose the hat not because i fear skin cancer, which now i do, but because i think i look like a goof after i get a haircut and i have a hair-line tan going. My long sleeve shirt i wear most of the time when fishing also has a higher collar than some of my shirts/sweaters and i hate that tan too.

Not exactly a slave to fashion, I'm a cap person and with ears this big they provide shade to the neck and chest areas.

OK, here is SSJ's hat...
Click the image to open in full size.
And mine, which my best mates sister gave to him for Christmas a couple years ago, and when I was out in South Africa I couldn't find my normal hat and seeing as it didn't fit him I borrowed it for our fishing trip. I decided I liked it, and it didn't fit him but he wouldn't part with it easily.... so it took me 2 weeks to wear him down and eventually I had to out fish him on a 3 day trip before he let me have it... I have worn it on every fishing trip since then...
