Default Cowboy hats & shorts?

I posted this poll a while back, but wondered if we had any additions? How many of you wear a cowboy hat with shorts?

Why care what someone else is wearing

I don't have a problem with any outfit unless we are praying, at a dinner table, or standing for the anthem and someone is wearing a hat/cap and etc

It's their choice but it does irritate me

I was up in Cave Creek, Arizona last weekend to play golf and there was a ranch having their hands play a round of golf. They all sported shorts (naturally) and a straw hat. I don't see anything wrong with it.
Just like doing yard work or filling feeders, if the climate and situation call for it then get after it. You're not beating brush via horseback or going to a rodeo/concert.
I think we can all agree we wouldn't wear it to the local rodeo or a major event.

I say yes.

Youíre wearing the wrong hat, amigo. I had to give up the palm leafs because they are too **** hot, and water makes the crease fall out. A well vented straw is nice though, and skin cancer is not.
