I’m a cap guy. By my own estimation I’ve spent more of my life wearing a baseball cap than without. This is for two reasons.
One, my father was a farmer and had an extensive collection of ball caps given to him by any number of organizations. I took up that collector’s impulse early on. Two, the reason my father and I probably favored wearing a hat was largely genetic. We come from a long line of bald men.
By the time I was a senior in high school my hair line had already begun it’s retreat. This is embarrassing for an 18-year-old and a hat hid that. But now that I’m older and don’t care that I’m bald, a hat is a more functional choice. It keeps the sun and cold out. Now the problem is finding a decent looking cap to serve that purpose.
