Snapbacks/Baseball caps are somewhat of a divisive issue in #menswear. Some people are all about looking like an adult and don’t think a baseball cap belongs in a grown man’s closet unless he is Jose Bautista, and others of us just like to have fun.
I never used to be one for hats, but recently I realised how good looking I am and that I can wear anything I want. I’ve ironically grown into a more playful style and out of the more mature style I used to try and accomplish. Although I know snapbacks make me look like a 16 year old boy, I have a lot of fun with them and I like to rep my city. I don’t really watch much sports so when I wear snapbacks it’s less for support of a team and more for support of my city.
The last time I was in BC I noticed someone wearing a Maple Leafs hat, now if you know me, you know I am farrrrrrr from a Leafs fan, but it excited me still. It wasn’t the fact that I like the Leafs cause I don’t, it was the fact that it reminded me of home, and that there was someone else from my area. I knew I could approach that guy and talk about Ontario, I didn’t, but regardless it was comforting. So when I make my trip out to move to Victoria on Nov 3, I’ll be packing my snapbacks.
