Default Flat bill ball caps

Anyone else not like flat billed caps? Just my preference I guess but I think they look ridiculous.

When you have a big fat head like i do, regular ball caps look oddly small on my head. Fitted flat bills look much better (I put a minor crease in them).

Just shave it bald. Not gonna hurt your looks any. Especially considering the extra Beam you freed up the $20 for.

My son wears them but he puts a little bend in them. I told him when he was younger, if I ever caught him wearing one flat I'd put some bend in it with my boot. Same goes for wearing your hat backwards. Only a few reasons thats ok in my book; riding a motorcycle, driving a boat or putting on a welding hood. The rest of the time wear it right or not at all.

I dislike flat bills, but what was the issue with square toe boots? Also, on the balding hair cut note, I have minimal hair but it still costs me $20. If I pay less at a crappy Super Cuts, it's comes out looking awful, which is a feat within itself do to the lack of hair and the fact they screw it up so badly.

1. 4x4 Diesel with low profile street tires

3. Sideways windshield sticker in old English
4. Diesels that insist on blowing black smoke
5. Florida Georgia Line
6. Bedazzled jeans
7. Flat bill hat, cocked to the side just a little bit

All these are typically the same vinegar and water guys.....

Flat billed caps and caps worn backwards and white sun glasses should only be attempted by those not old enough to legally drive yet. You look stupid. I know you think you look cool and none of your friends will tell you this but you do. Slight bend in the bill ( looks just as stupid if you "super fold it") worn correctly with grown up shades ( unless you're trying to look "fabulous"!. Now, get off my lawn!
