    Default Why do they wear them at all?

    I see the occasional person wearing their baseball cap back the front and I wonder why?

    More to the point, why do they wear them at all?

    I can't see any use for them whatsoever and wonder why?

    I would not be seen dead wearing a baseball cap. Can't see why anybody would want to wear one.

    With the decline of the mullet another way had to be found to stop bogans getting sunburnt necks

    Fashion never makes sense, don't try to understand it. You might as well ask about visible boxers or oversized pants riding too low to allow walking properly. Or the hoody, glasses , and cap look which seems designed to hide your face for criminal purposes more than anything but is pretty popular all the same and I can't be sure they are all dodgy characters.

    Around the right way caps are good for keeping the sun out of your eyes and stopping your nose getting burnt, also quite handy if you wear glasses to keep the glare or a bit of light rain off the lenses.
    I used to wear them when I went surfcasting for those reasons. Sure there are other hats that do these jobs, but it comes down to personal preference there. Also baseball caps fit more snugly and are less prone to blowing away on you.

    I asked my son what it is meant to mean...as in there is some statement having it backwards?
    Thought he might know what the trendy meaning thing is.

    He said, yeah it means you're a dick

    Great answer.

    The only ones that it really suits are the catches and umpires in baseball (softball what ever you like to call it).

    To Quote one place:
    So Why Do Baseball Players Wear Their Hats Backwards?:

    The reason behind it is that catchers could never fit their catcher’s mask over their hat so they started turning their hats around when they would put on their mask.
    The ones that look even more like dicks are the ones that wear them sideways

    Bit like the idiots that have their pants halfway down their backside

    As a teen I had long hair, Id wear mine backwards while doing woodwork or drilling, wore it normal when I didn't want sun in my eyes... don't see what the issue is. Although could never figure out the sideways one, you don't get swag from caps.

    How about a cap with two peaks. Keep the sun out of the eyes, and protect the neck. How about four peaks, protect the ears as well.

    Why not just don a plastic bucket?

    Why not just wear a full brimmed hat so that the sun is kept off off the neck, eyes and ears at the same time.
