men in baseball hats.... good look or bad look?

DH needs, or thinks he needs, a hat for our short break in barcelona next months.

I think baseball caps are an extremely bad look when teamed with cropped trousers and bare feet with sandals.

Am I right? And what would be a viable alternative to baseball caps?

Thank you all in anticipation.

You are indeed right, themoon.
no idea what else he could wear i'm afraid.

Tell him to stay in the shade instead!

A rumpled straw hat - anything but a baseball cap. They're complete pants.

Bad look, but sometimes Dh has to wear one to stop his poor bald head burning!! He also has an Indianna Jones style thing, which I personally think looks much better!

i like baseball hats but my dp likes baseball so he can carry it off hahah

Dh has a hat - like a...well, a hat hat. With a brim. But soft. Not like a pith helmet or a sombrero. It doesn't look too ridiculous. I think it's AirWalk and he got it in a surfy shop.

Troutpout's dh has a hat with flowers on. Now that looks ridiculous .

It's a bit like this - but beige

very bad look

DH has a panama-shaped straw one for poncing about in and a waxed cotton bush hat for, er, poncing about in.

The waxed one is a bit Indiana Jones I suppose...

i almost hit the kerb in my car today looking at a spectacularly good looking guy cycling up the road in a baseball hat

so it's bad, because if i could have seen him properly i would have been in more control of my car

MrsBadger Thu 12-Jul-07 20:29:52

Like the blue harbour one. Very acceptable!

MrsBadger! Is that your DH stood looking moodily over the syphyx?

MrsBadger Thu 12-Jul-07 20:35:01

might be, might be...

ChippyMinton Thu 12-Jul-07 20:35:24

cricket hat

or panama straw style

or a baseball hat with meaning - ie his team not some cruddy designer or promo nonsense. DH has a poncey lear jet one!

ApuNahasapeemapetilon Thu 12-Jul-07 20:36:22

bloody awful

i like a little porkpie hat like dermot used to wear

themoon66 Thu 12-Jul-07 20:38:25

Perhaps I should just arrange for him to learn how to knot a hankie.

themoon66 Thu 12-Jul-07 20:39:16

dermot's pork pie hat sounds promising.... link anyone?

LordPan Thu 12-Jul-07 20:39:49

Men should only wear baseball caps when they are playing baseball.

Same goes for tam o shanters.

southeastastra Thu 12-Jul-07 20:40:12

sounds awful moon!

baseball hats are nice get one with a curly brim

themoon66 Thu 12-Jul-07 20:40:55

DH says how about this one... 03122?ie=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A53812031&page=1
