|mcbammer||Fedoras was the hat of choice for southerners pre 1970s , use to be if you saw someone wearing a flat cap , you knew they were from up north .|

I still wear a couple of my dad's Fedoras on occasion.
I actually wear one while gardening some times, not as hot as a baseball cap.

|oldandslow||"You get a lot more clothes when you live in the north than when you live in the south." Well, I suppose that makes sense unless you want to freeze your cajones off. I seem to remember some sayings about brass monkeys and witches. By the way, ball caps are available with mesh tops just like hats. I'll confess to having a Barhma and also a Conner hat with mesh crowns that are cool and ear friendly plus very light weight in the summer. They are still a PIA on a windy day though.|

|oldandslow||I'm trying to wrap my mind around the "not practical, and usually ill fitting" statement. I've worn them and liked them since I was a kid. They can be found sized or adjustable. They don't blow off in the wind and do a very good job of keeping the sun out of your eyes. We have plenty of both those items in this part of the world. Probably 90% of the head covers you see here are ball caps.|

|Sandhillbilly||Ball cap at work, resistol straw off work in summer, 10X felt in colder weather, only reason I wear a ball cap at work is because I am required to wear a hard hat and the bill on the hard hat don't block enough sun so I wear the ball cap under it. Wear the ball when hunting too.|
