can a guy 30 or older get away with wearing a hat backwards?Page 8 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Something about a man working hard, his strong arms glistening in the hot summer sun...wearing a cap backwards turns my crank... It just works I think....

Course, could be he's just trying to keep the hair and sweat off his face....which kinda works too

Sure, I think he can. I mean chicks try to dress like their daughters so why can't a guy do it. Double standard much?

Whenever I see it I remember what era we grew up in and realize that that's just what we do, it's how we grew up it's what we're used to. I mean you won't hear us bumping the emo crazed music but still... you get my point.

I'm 33 and when I'm alone that music is loud enough to hurt anyone's ears.

For me a guy wearing his hat backwards is just fine, because I sure as heck am not wearing the granny panties or granny clothes so all's good. ;) I actually like it.

I am over 30 and I wear what I want the way I want.

Now there are some things I don't like but it's because it looks silly to me not because of age... Pants below your butt cheeks, those flat billed hats with the stickers and tags left on and cowboy boots with shorts are all dumb looking to me.. .. ;)

I'm with him...the day a "woman" can expect me to dress how they want is the day they allow me to make decisions for them. Wearing it backwards is a bit different than wearing it slightly****d to the side or worse,completely sideways. That said there's more overweight women wearing cloths they are 10 sizes too big for than there are guys wearing their hats the wrong way.

A guy can wear what he wants when he wants to as long as he wears it with confidence. If you have to ask, then no you shouldn't do it.

Of course what you wear will attract only the women who are into it.

All women are into different things, so there is a subset of them that are into the backwards hat, and that will be your key demographic. Don't expect to pick up women who are into high end fashion to find that look sexy.

I'm 32, I wear my had backwards. The way I look at it, I don't care about the women that don't like it. They're not what I'm looking for. The way I dress weeds out the women I'm not compatible with, and narrows it down to just those I may have interest in.

I am 34 and always wear my hat backwards. It how I feel most comfortable and I love it. It's not to feel goin it cool. I don't care what others think. I don't line the bill in front and blocks my vision. Do what makes you feel comfortable and who cares what others think. If I could find a cap without a bill I'd probably wear it. Not a stocking cap. Just saying.

Hi there,
I think it is completely okay that any guy at any age except maybe over the age of 50 because I think it would just look weird for some reason.
I think it is great that you wear your hat any way you like it.

I think I am more disturbed by the guy telling me that I can't wear a hat because they don't like women wearing hats. "To each its own" really.

If you like it wear it, it will protect your neck from sunburn. It's a personality identifier so if you like it it says something about you, that's not a bad thing. Be your self.

I'm far from a thug, and I wear my hat backward 90% of the time I wear it. I don't think it has anything to do with age, or even attitude. I don't know why I prefer it backward but that's just the way it usually goes on. I can't imagine myself looking in the mirror one day and saying...nah, this just doesn't look good anymore. It's a hat, who cares!!

I personally feel it has nothing to do with "impressing other people". It is like being in a concert, when the music is turned up loud, it is for my personal enjoyment, not to impress others, and yes i am guilty of it, i also like to wear my hat backwards, and believe me i am no gang banger, never have been and never will be, it is the era that i grew up in, i am 37 with very long hair, and i wear my hat backwards on a daily basis, it is not to impress Anyone, it is a personal choice. I wear my hat backwards mainly to keep the sweat out of my face at work, and the bill gets in the way from what i am doing, that is how it all began for me.
So in my opinion, go for it, do what you want to do,who gives a F**k with what everyone thinks about it. Style is overrated to begin with once you are over 30 anyways.

I wear my hat backwards for practical reason. I ride a motorcycle and it requires me to wear the hat backwards or lose the cap in wind. Moreover, I like to get sun on my face, but not so much on my balding head. A backwards cap works for both counts.

The tone on this thread seems to suggest that a backwards cap is sort of thuggish. A cap alone does not make someone thuggish.

Can A 30 year man pull off wearing backwards hat


Only if he's working. I wore my hat backwards often, but was climbing and biking and doing other things that made it necessary. Now, if I even wear a hat, I wear it frontwards; and only because my hairs messy or not showered. I hardly ever wear bandannas anymore, regardless of the situation. Maybe..on a canoe trip..but only maybe.


wearing "young Men" style of clothing?


Not sure what this means. I'm more unsure I like the insinuation here.

I own an Osh Kosh jean jacket; does that qualify?

Have you gotten into mothball smelling floral print..um...everrythings yet?

As far as music goes; I hope people never listen to the music "designated for their age section". That's real divisive, and keeps people out of touch.

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


Note to self: Chicken cordon blue, lasagna, and a ton of other great meals are now out.

I have to agree with the crowd who says" who cares".

If ya like it; and it works for you (and doesnt hurt anyone else) go for it.

And ot those who like to "dresss and act age appropriate"; I'll be using cheese when I cook ya up,promise. (mooooooo/baaahaaaa)

Office Space....hilarious movie!
The best rap scene was in the beginning when...was it Michael Bolton who turned the music down and locked the car?

Personally...the hat backwards. Its ok if you're at a sports event.....or playing in one. But going out every where with it? Not so much. At least it isn't the hat sideways...

Older guys look.....tryhard when they wear the backwards hat.
In fact, even the young guys look tryhard when they wear the backwards hat.
It's just a dumb look, and it's almost a uniform for a certain type of hiphop wannabe.
