Sports hats are as cool as average guys get. Halloween is the one time guys get a pass on goofy hats.
Few men can rock hats that aren't sports hats; Abraham Lincoln, Indiana Jones and country music stars like George Strait. Most hats for men are thought up as a dare, in a design meeting at a novelty company, "I'll bet you that no guy will wear a hat that makes it look like a fish is poking through their head." Wrong. One call to Sky Mall magazine changed all that. Men are doomed to wear awful hats for the rest of time, unless you're The Edge (guitarist from U2). He's worn hats since 1985, and makes it work.
Hats off to the Edge.
I guess there is hope for us men, after all.
