I don't mind when people wear baseballs caps like they should be worn, but when I see guys who wear them to the side, backwards or just barely on their head, the first thing that comes to my mind is...well, let's just say it's a term related to feminine hygiene.

Have you ever socialized with such people and how did they turn out?
I don't try to be cool by wearing a baseball cap... not my thing...
Lol, you sound like a crotchety old man who is complaining about them damn kids wearing them hats in a crazy direction. I wear mine backwards (except when the sun is in my face) and I have never thought of it as a statement or trying to be cool. Its just comfortable and you dont have to worry about your hair, like when you sleep in and are running out the door to make it to class w/o showering Its like the male equivalent of the pony tail.

As sad as it is I think there is an age limit for people who wear that hats in a direction other than forward.. I'm guessing 30 but I dont really know. For now I am just going to keep wearing what I feel like and not worry whether anyone thinks its cool or not.

Around where I live, I don't actually see a lot of men wearing baseball caps at all. I mostly see women wearing baseball caps doing their early morning walk. Or in the afternoons when I'm driving home from work.

Cool is what's under the scalp, not over it.

That being said, inside the house or at the dinner table, or at the movies is definitely not cool, no matter how you wear the thing.

Does the first word start with "D" and the second starts with "B"

Put on a baseball cap and the problem is solved. Or are most people on here the type of people who cover their eyes with their hands and squint when the sun is blinding them? Or are most people on here not outside in daylight? So being able to see is a bad substitute to fashion?
When someone picks you up for dinner at 7, and never takes the freakin' hat off, even at the dang restaurant, I assure you it has nothing to do with being able to see. First, and LAST, date by the way.
