Alright, I've got an on going thread over on the Texas board asking if people take their hats off to eat. Now seeing how California has it's on far share of hats, Cowboys and Western history. I wanted to ask y'all the same question.

Okay here it goes...

If you wear a hat, either a Cowboy style hat or ball cap, do you wear it inside at the table while eating or take it off? This includes restaurants?


FYI: This is NOT a state vs state thing! Outside of my minor differences in political thinking I have made several trips to California including driving one end to the other. California is a beautiful state and full of interesting people.

Man, you must be lost ... on the California forum you ask about men who wear women's underwear while eating, not hats ... Rue Paul style ...

Anyway, you ain't gonna get away with being nice and complimentary about California here ... if you're from Texas, you're gonna hear about it

Oh, almost forgot:
hats off
(underwear too)

Unless you're under arms, hats off when you come through the door!

Time for school folks. America was settled by the English in the East and the Spanish in the West.
It was and is English tradition for men to remove hats indoors.
It was Spanish tradition for men not to remove hats indoors.

Which is why the inheritors of Spanish hat tradition, the cowboys, do not remove their hats indoors, while inheritors of the English tradition do.

Now, that line has been blurred, more and more men are unknowingly carrying on the Spanish tradition by not removing their hats indoors, generally without any idea they are following Spanish tradition, not English.

And for some, they would throw their hats away if they knew they were doing what "them Mexicans" do.

None of the above. I rotate my ball cap 1/3 to the left like a homeboy.

Interesting, I did not know about the Spanish custom of wearing hats indoors although I see a lot of Spanish people doing it.

Thanks

The old time Spanish Caballeros had such fancy hats there would be no place to set one safely, so they kept them on..

Few people in California wear hats. Those who do usually walk around with their hats on backwards.
