can a guy 30 or older get away with wearing a hat backwards?Page 4 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
I agree with Cookie121603

I'm an African American in my early 30's. I very much grew up listening to Hip Hop music. I still do (just a little more picky about who I choose to listen to now). I very much wear baseball caps (well "fitteds" depending on your knowledge of urban slang) and dress in an urban kind of style (although I've NEVER worn my hat backwards, LOL). Every now and then i switch things up (only a fool keeps doing the same thing over and over). Why should I get older then all of a sudden decide to stop listening to Hip Hop (hell no one stops listening to rock when they get older. Hip hop is a respected art form, so why should I). People stick to what they grew up listening to as with most passions they acquire in life. It's an organic feeling. Being classy and grown to me is a mind state. I don't give a damn how classy and bougie you TRY to look or how old you are, if you ACT childish or engage in childish behavior you are IMMATURE and CHILDISH to me. I've never really had no negative attention about my dress style that I know of (matter of fact I get compliments on mystyle a lot more when I dress in a urban style). I know we as a society tend to stereotype by human nature but I pride myself on not being a conformist and a follower. I just do ME. I get much more respect out of people being that way. Now I admit it's NOTHING wrong with changing your style up every so often (or even permanently), matter of fact I ENCOURAGE it if you truly feel that way. It boils down to your personality, body type, and overall look that determines what dress style suits you.

It isn't about being conformist or non-comformist.

First of all, a man wearing a hat indoors is impolite on the face of it (possible exception for the guitarist Slash, for whom it's rather a trademark. Are you Slash? No? Okay, we're done here). Outside, fine, but when you enter a door, the thing to do is to take it off. That's just a matter of manners, showing respect to others.

Second, wearing it backwards is a teenage thing to do. It just is. Do you want to be perceived as a teenager? No? Then don't do it.

It's that simple.

Yup. As soon as people start genuflecting when I enter the room I'll whip my hat off in a heart beat.. it's all about mutual respect yanno? <SEG>

Sure. It makes him look about 20 years more ridiculous - but when has the perspective of making a fool out of himself ever stopped a man from doing anything? :innocent:

(Personally, I wouldn't date a man who wears a baseball cap anyway, regardless which way it points. But that's just me.)

I've never been a hat fan, so even when I was younger I found it ugly. Hats are good in the summer for protection or when fishing etc. As for backwards, again not really a style I was ever into. I really like what bigbee said though - it depends on YOU.

As for music, people like what they like. I don't like country but have friends who do. It is nice to have a man like most of the music I do though as I like music and like talking about music. I listen to rap, pop, rock, but R&B is closest to my heart and frankly here in Ottawa I haven't met many men really into it. It was more popular in Montreal.

Sure, he can get a way with it, but only because it's not illegal. Which it should be.

Fraid I wouldn't want to date one no matter what age he is or which way round the hat is worn.


Yeah, most classy ladies won't!

Well, if he's taking the main role in "exorcist, the older man edition" then maybe... If the head's facing backwards why not the cap? Makes sense really.

Yeah, 'cuz just like the rat tails, big mustaches, mullets and pompadours worked in the past.....Trendy is for losers trying to be cool!

^^^^^ Amen! We laugh at past fashion trends but the new ones are pretty permanent!

These losers can get away with whatever they want.... and I can discriminate against them all I want!
...for those who are going to say discrimination based on choices is illegal....it's not!

It cracks me up how often people call me RACIST at my club when I tell them they aren't welcome if they have neck tattoos, are sagging, baggy, big dbag chains, hats backwards or sweats.

Bingo. A long time ago I saw an interview with Sly Stone and his comment about clothes and being trendy was: ``Clothes don't make a man. A man makes his clothes.''

``Clothes don't make a man. A man makes his clothes.''

So true. Dressing well is very, very nice.

But dressing like you know how to wear what you're wearing is sexy.

Be yourselves when it comes to fashion, guys.

But skip the baseball cap, backwards or not, unless you're at a sporting event. There's a limit.

And never, never, never wear any kind of hat indoors. Not if you hope to ever marry. It's just rude.

if the 30 + year old guy is bald or starting to bald he can wear a hat anyway he wants.

i guess that the original poster does not have a life.because if they do then they should be worried about that more than how a 30 year old guy wears his ball cap.

OP,
It's considered fine if a man wears his baseball cap on backwards or forwards- but idiotic if he**** it sideways like a low-class gangster. Please don't look stupid and****it sideways!

OP- a man can do WHATEVER he wishes to do, so long as he OWNS it...and KNOWS how to carry it off.

as though he were as comfortable with it as he is breathing.

30 year old plus, wearing a hat backwards needs to grow up and stop cooking with cheese.

A hat backwards.... how trivial.
It's not like you have to see his azz while your walking down the street.
I'd rather think about what kind of person they are then how they wear a damn hat.

The wearing of a hat backwards can be taken one of two ways.
1. The guy is a goof and refuses to grow up.
2. He is young at heart and still knows how to have fun regardless of his age.

I think it looks sort of silly but to me it isn't a big issue. If I meant someone that was right in every other way, I certainly wouldn't walk away from them because they wore a hat backwards.

Wow !

I used to have a buddy who wore ball caps all the time when we hung out at my place , his place - often INSIDE - GASP !

I had no idea that he was being rude !

Guess what ?

He got married !

How the frick did THAT happen ?!!!

IMO it's rude to wear a hat at the dinner table.... that's about it.

Different strokes I guess.

Deal with it...

On that, at least, we agree.

I do realize I hold higher standards than many, even maybe most, on this.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
