I rarely ever wear hats because I'm picky and cheap. Hats can be expensive and well if it isn't perfect, I won't wear it. They need to be the perfect color or set of colors. They need to be of the perfect shape. They need to fit me perfectly. They need to be affordable. For me to wear them, they can't be too ostentatious. They can't be too extravagant. They can't be too ratty or too common.
In other words, they need to be perfect.
The only hat I have ever really worn was the Boston Red Sox baseball cap. But still I do appreciate the art of hats and hat~wearing.
I go for the traditional fitted Red Sox hat. No lame assed unofficial team colors:
Okay, so the traditional baseball cap kind of violates my last condition but being a citizen of the Red Sox Nation is part of my being, my identity ... so sue me. I never said I wasn't a hypocrite.
So if you love the art of hats and hat~wearing, spread your hat and hat~wearing love here.
