    stupid fucking flat brim ball caps

    Whose fucking idea was that they cuz they sure don't keep sun out of my eyes well enough but I keep getting freebe flat brim hats, the easy fix is soak that hat brim in water strap the brim around a medium sized jar and leave it to dry ... problem solved

    I usually curve the brims by leaving it on the inside of a large coffee cup for a day or two

    Too easy of a fix. Can't you bring 'em to a professional boot fitter and get him to punch, stretch and mold 'em to the absolutely perfect shape to optimize fit, sight lines and shading preferences? I could probably use some Intuitions for my cone shaped cranium.

    I always thought sliding was a better way to describe curling, but what do I know


    I still have some flat brims from when I was a teenager, don't know what the fuck I was thinking. I bend em all now.

    Curved brim baseball caps are about as douchey as Ed Hardy t-shirts, acid washed flared jeans, and Chad Kroeger.

    There's a time and a place for every hat. Flatbrims are good for a dressier look. Nice jeans, sport coat, and a flat brim for when I want to be classy as fuck. Trucker cap with SnapBack for everything else. Velcro back is an old man look...same with those stupid metal clasps.

    I tend to find that not wearing a baseball hat goes best with a dressier look...

    Flex fit trucker. Most comfortable hat ever. And still can pass as classy as fuck. All depends on the shirt

    It can be, totally depends. Christmas party with your coworkers in the beer industry, absolutely.

    Christmas party with your wife's company at a fancy steakhouse with a bunch of 50-60yo professionals...definitely not.

    My eight-year-old son insisted on getting a flat-brimmed hat. Apparently the curved-brim hat is very uncool now amongst second-graders.

    Fashion cycles.

    I remember in the 90s in the PNW when maximum brim curve was cool. Reserved for the 12-22 yo crowd, even for the semi-pro and pro baseball players in the area. Flatter brims were for the old fuddy duddies. Coaches and dads and the almost retired players.

    Give it 10 years. Flat brims will be lame.

    I feel like flat brim hats are the male equivalent of bell bottoms.
