can a guy 30 or older get away with wearing a hat backwards?Page 2 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
The question is...how can a guy get away with posting something like this on a dating site, when it has nothing to do with dating.

I really think we should be asking the HAT how IT feels about all this, shouldn't we?

I think we should go back to when it was offensive to wear a hat INDOORS by men.

There's nothing to go back to. That hasn't changed. Many are woefully unaware of it, but it's still the rule to remove it when you enter a place


For some this thread is a no brainer, but for clueless guys like myself I found this hat discussion very informative and went a got a hair cut

the bill of the hat gets in the way of the scope.

If you're an old looking 30 or older probably not, if you're a young looking 30 or older for sure. But either way who the hell is anyone to tell you what to do? If you wanna rock out a ball cap backwards for the love of God go for it. Who cares what other people think?

And nothing feels better than a sunburn on my scalp as my hair thins the older I get.

As if there are no other options than a baseball cap, and backwards, at that? You can wear a nice hat not made specifically for sporting events, and that has a grown-up appearance, when outdoors and not at a sporting event. As has been pointed out earlier in the thread. There are many, many attractive styles available, for all weather.

However - open Jeep CJs (no doors, no top) I do keep a couple baseball cap style hats handy. Then no, you do not look strange to other Jeepers anyway.....

Looked at my hat. Guess it wouldn't really matter how I wear it, the brim is the same width all the way around. Since it seems to work better pointing forward, will just keep it like that.

btw - some of the folks are correct - if you shoot with a scope, or in my case, shoot archery with fingers only (no release aids) the bill of a baseball style cap will get in the way. So quite a few of those shooters do wear a cap backwards. Not fashion - practicality.

^^ I don't think any respondent would make the argument that it matters at all what a man wears to do something as casual - and sporting - as to go shooting, unless he does this at a club which has a dress code. In which case what anyone else thinks of his attire would still be irrelevant.

AFAIC if he's out practicing by himself, he's free to wear Tickle Me Elmo pajamas, flip-flops with socks, a fanny pack, and a tiara if he likes.

I've done plenty of shooting and never needed to wear the bill backwards! But whatever....so when your shooting turn it then turn it back when you're done....is that too difficult? While we're at it pull your silly pants up too! fashion.....your butt crack!

I like to wear a hoodie and worn out jeans, hang out at the 7-11 and mumble to women as they enter and exit "ya lookin'?" So far I've gotten away with it.

I happen to be in control of dress codes so I HAVE to deal with what others are wearing. Trust me when I say the 90% of people who cultivate a certain look are stereotypically following up the look with actions. People who dress like a$$hats generally ARE a$$hats!

I think so. I wear hats all the time, majority of the times backwards because thats just who I am, to be honest shouldnt worry about what others think. Ive dated some ladies who are very care oriented & it didnt bother them...

well I am 34 and I wear a Bseball Cap backwards, I also wear lots of adidas and nike sports gear and I am not leb or anything. You should wear what ever you like and makes you feel good and represents your personelity.

Mind you I have a baby face and look far from 34 everyone tells me 25 or 26 lol so I guess I am lucky and can get away with wearing shit lol.

In any cse wear what ever you like but don't try to be someone your not or just to impress the ladies, they see right through ya lol so if ya 30 and look ya age or older try the smart casual look clean shaven and wear some deo and good mens perfume like ralph lauren polo double black and use manners that gets the ladies more interested rather then looking like some try hard wanna be gangsta

Personally, I can only think of two times i would ever wear my hat backwards.

1. While I am welding,kinda keeps the sparks off the back of my neck.

2. While I am playing catcher and wearing a facemask.


As for others, well fashion says "ME" Fad says "ME TOO!" just my $.02.

I am a guy in my mid 30's and I think the question is a little broad...the style of the hat is what determines if a guy in his 30's should even be wearing it. I am an athlete and I wear hats all the time, forward and backwards...NEVER sideways or askew in any other way. I don't think guys my age should be wearing the "thugged out" straight billed or ultra flashy ghetto hats at all. And as far as the music thing, if you roll around town with your stereo blasting for everyone to hear you're an idiot anyway no matter what your age is.

Unless you're in a rap video, I would advise against it in the public but hey, whatever works for you. Provided you aren't trying to get a woman in this attire.

Can A 30 year man pull off wearing backwards hat or wearing "young Men" style of clothing?

What about listening to hip hop in a car with the bass turned up?

Remember the movie office space?
It's basically a good group of entry level white collar guys, but every song in the movie is rap! when they pile in the car to get lunch, they play rap. Nothing wrong with that. It's real life, but looked so awkward.
What do you think?


You can be and do as you wish, as long as it's not illegal. lol

I personally HATE when any type of music is blaring out of a car. Annoying as all hell!!!

Just wanna say, I love a backwards baseball cap (think Doug Heffernan). I find it adorable, I love it. And I'm 32 and love it on men of any age.

why are you asking a forum if it is ok? it is ok to do it if you feel comfortable doing it.

i wear a cap backward at times. bc i like the look. then again, i also wear a bandana at times, a beanie, etc.. so i guess i look like a wanna be
