WHY???, do people wear baseball hats on backwards??? What could be the reason?, other than looking macho!
Don't these people, (mostly young folks) know that wearing the stupid looking backward baseball hat all the time causes premature baldness! Just wondering, wondering about a lot of things lately, must be the times, malvin

The only time I wear mine backwards is when I am taking photographs!

Causes premature baldness? How? Other than looking macho? A lot of guys may want to look macho. I'm with Najataagihe...only when I'm taking pictures...not my cup of tea.

Whenever I see someone with a backwards hat I immediately think about my time in the Marine Corp. Guys serving time in the brig were required to wear their hats backwards to distinguish them from the 'good' Marines. My first thought is always -- "Another Brig Rat."

You better call the fashion police. A cause of boldness, really? If you wear a baseball cap, does being bald really matter?

I have never seen anyone look good in a Baseball cap. NEVER....Now a hat with a brim is very flattering to men and it keeps the sun off the ears.

Cancer of the ear edges is NOT fun.

I gave up wearing hats when I left the navy. Most sailors wore the "Dixie Cup"when not working and ashore and ball caps correctly when working aboard the ship.

It's to be different, so they all wear it the same way and they all look the same. Different?
Never cared for hats, maybe a Balaclava in a snow storm but that's probably it. JMHO

I figure the only people who are entitled to where their hats backwards are photographers and welders (to keep sparks or slag from going down their back, been there done that, ouch!). And no, key hole peeping toms are not entitled to either.

After leaving the military, I never wanted to wear another ball hat in either direction Now a Tilley hat is a different matter. Wish I’d had the good sense to wear one all those years sailing - might have prevented all those skin cancers on my (now) mostly bald head.
