Joe needs a hat?

I normally don't do hats. Baseball caps just don't look right on me. I'm not sure what it is. However, with summer approaching, I'm realizing from previous summers (and particularly when I was in Mexico) that it's getting difficult to keep the sun off my head without lathering my entire hair and scalp in sunscreen.

So, I decide to get a hat. Not just any hat, but a hat with a brim for hot weather..., oh, let's just get this over with. Here is how it looks...

It's a nice Columbia hat from REI and was only $25. The first person I think of when I see a hat like this is randomcub and ljtourist who have hats like these too. It works for them, but does it work for me? Or, do I look like a dork in it? Like I said, I think I look goofy in hats. They did have a hat in a solid beige or darker green color, but for some reason I like this.

Discuss amongst yourselves...

You really have nice eyes. I would say if you don't wanna look like an amateur then kill that strap with a pair of scissors, STAT. You should see the straw hat I wear when I'm working in the yard...a $15 fishing hat from Dick's, although nobody is going to be seeing that voluntarily.

Excellent point. I may have to snip that off. Guess I'll stick with the color I have chosen.

I only plan on wearing this for extended periods in the sun.

I wear a Mobil1 NASCAR ballcap. I got it free with an oil change. ;)

The hat works on you, but you need to smile and own the hat. You look too much like a grumpy kid doing the sneaker walk in front of the parents. ;)

I think it will look just fine when your face shows a smile and you don't look like it's so painful to wear ;)

Hehe, yeah, I was quite tired last night. Should have taken it when I was more perky. Thanks!

I own a hat like that for kayaking (but mine is dark blue with a black brim). I look like a complete tool in it, but it does an amazing job of making it so my feace and neck don't get burnt to a crisp when I'm out on the water.

And I'm pretty sure I've seen pictures of you in a baseball cap, and you looked just fine.

This is why I wanted it. When I am in the sun, i hate slathering sunscreen all over my head and face (then you sweat and the sunscreen gets in your eyes and stings, etc.).

Me in a baseball cap? I think not. :p

It's fine. Sexy, even. Put the strap behind your head so you don't look like Dennis the Menace. It's a little new; maybe consider tying to a string and dragging it behind your car on a drive down some dirt roads. And wash it a couple of times.

Oh, my, sexy? That hat looks sexy on me? Rubbish!

Point taken on the strap. I guess you have some old hats yourself? I don't think I've seen you in one.

Looks good.

I can tell that you aren't used to hats though :-)
You do rather appear in these photos to have just been forced to sit and wear the hat by an overbearing aunt while she took the picture.

See? See? I told you! Hats are so not my thing.

Excellent critique of my mood, but I was simply pooped out last night when I took this. I should have been in bed.

I like it, though you could be looking a bit happier when you're having your pic taken with it. :-)

Yes, yes, everyone has now stated I look grumpy. I was just very tired last night when I took this when I should have been in bed.

Thanks for the approval though!

How about a hat like this???
snowboardjoe

Well, I suppose if I pull that hat down over my head really tight, it might look like that. :)

Joe, the hat falls heavily onto the 'dork' side of things. Sorry, you just aren't a hat guy....

wear it like you mean it
full brimmed hats are far more effective than ballcaps for yard work sun protection

Re: wear it like you mean it
That's what I'm hoping.
