Maybe this should go in the fashion thread?
Anyway I have a Lacoste cap which I really like. You should check them out.

Burberry recently released the vintage check caps again...but just looking at their website now its seems to have gone :/ possibly season change so they could be at the outlets now.

If it's a snapback then yeah, the crown on those are usually pretty high compared to caps which sit flusher to the wearer's bonce.

Flexfit actually tell you the size of the crown of their caps on this site:

Snapback: https://www.flexfit.com/hat/classic-snapback-multicam/

Low profile: https://www.flexfit.com/hat/lowprofilecottontwill/

I mostly wear New Era's stretch (39THIRTY) and strap adjustable (9FORTY) caps, never heard of Yupoong / Flexfit. Really like the look of the low profile ones. Will def check 'em out. Ta for the unintentional heads up! :P

Grown men wearing SnapBacks are the worst. Protip - you look like a dickhead.

If it’s cold I’ll wear a woolly hat, if I’m off out in the country on a walk or National Trusting I’ll wear my flat cap. If I’m playing golf I’ll wear a baseball cap.

I'm 42, if I wear a cap I'd most likely end up in prison for crimes against fashion and from what I hear prison isn't that great and they don't serve tapas or seafood.

My advice is to not wear a baseball cap.

Wear a wooly hat if cold.

Grown men shouldn't wear baseball caps.

I only ever bought one and ended up bending the strawberry float out of the peak. The flat look just didn't suit me.

I still regularly rock a baseball cap... Poser has been selflessly promoting one of mine for months :toot: . I also don beanie hats and flat caps according to the climate. Hats :wub: .

I bought myself a Yankee snapback when I was in New York, and I wear it so tilted, I actually walk with a hunch.

Baseball caps are fine for keeping the sun out of your eyes, but I'm more of a beanie/flat cap man at the moment.

Snapbacks looks ridiculous, though I rock all hats that come into contact with my head. :cool:

I don’t see how age is an issue. I’m 34 and often wear baseball caps in summer as they do a good job of keeping the sun out of my eyes/off my face since I’m ginger and burn really easily too.

I'm 4 years younger than Mafro.

I expect kids to wear baseball caps (wtf are snapbacks, just another word for a baseball cap?). Grown men look ridiculous in them. Suit and a baseball cap? Ridiculous. Fully kitted out in sports gear with a baseball cap hanging outside PaddyPower etc is the image of a grown man wearing one.

It's like owning Man United/football team bedsheets as an adult. It just shouldn't happen.

Tbf, hats are generally fairly pointless. Jackets /coats with hoods are better for rain and it's rarely so cold as to need one.*

*I suppose bald people may feel the cold on their head more, but being bald and wearing a baseball cap is arguably even more silly looking and makes me think of William Hague.

Maybe where you live. Harsh winter winds are a lot more comfortable with a beanie/wool hat. Hoods catch the wind and are pretty shite.

Nowt wrong with a cap on the summer either. Hats actually have a practical purpose.

Chavs walking around with their caps flicked up have completely ruined these hats for me.

Ah man, New Era have a lovely new line of basketball caps.

The cap material looks (intentionally) rough but those wee pins are just :wub: The CB and GSW 9FORTY are tempting me...
