I think the Puma hats are sweet. I don't look great in them as I have a small dome. I do like them however.

Looks bad on Watney.

You have to have a smaller head other wise it looks strange

12 or so.
If they released something in a fitted design and a standard brim I would wear them. Otherwise pass.

They have them. I have a fitted puma hat that has a regular brim. Same design as the monoline, except not oversized and funny looking.

I have an imposing melon so I steer away from the flat brims, they make my head look like a Mac truck.

I hear ya. When I see "one size fits all" I know it won't fit. I wear a 7-3/4 from New Era. It's a big head.

I don't wear them because I look ridiculous in them even though I have a smaller head. I bought a flat brim Yankees hat once and immediately returned it and got another fitted "MLB Fanchise" one. I don't think there's necessarily an age limit to wearing flat brims but I'm in my 20's (albeit 29, haha) and think they look ridiculous on 90% of people that wear them. If you can pull it off then go for it but most people can't.

I won't lie I hope bstone comes out with a flat brim. They look best on me.

I'm with this. I could rock a Bridgestone Flat brim. I looked the Titleist flat brim, and I didn't like its fit. It had an odd shape and weird way the bill came into the crown.

Just anout everyone at my school knows me for wearing hats backward. I have two flat-brimmed, one from alcatraz and another metal mulisha cap, but they dont fit too well so i typically wear my pukka hat. If my hair isnt that long i wont wear one at all tho. Thats why i want to get a hair cut, i dont like having to wear hats just to keep my hair down.

but then again, i am only 16. My opinion on anybody who wants to wear anything: i couldnt care less as long as you look good while wearing it.

My hell that looks like a county jail! I dig RF and everything, but he is a bit loud. Take Tiger for example, he looks sharp and up to date from hea to toe. He shouts young/hip and old school/classy all in one breath. Rickie says "look at me" with us baby blue pants or neon orange shirt. But if you can rock it, rock it. No matter what your age is

I don't wear them myself, but Watney is sporting a sweet two-tone Nike today.

I've seen some older guys pull them off no prob. Just depends on the person style I think.

I'm loving the new Cleveland flat brim hats. I just wish Cleveland would respond on twitter or FB to my asking if/when they'll be available.

Not really. I judge people how the dress all the time. If a kid shows up for an interview in sweat pants and a hat in backwards, I'm not hiring him. I know this is completely different from the topic of this thread, but at the same time, in a professional setting, whether its business or sports, appearance speaks volumes.
It might be absurd but ""that's the fact, Jack". People are judging you by dress and context all the time. A tuxedo on the golf course would look as out of place as Bubba's overalls. Those same overalls on the farm are just fine.

I hear the argument that "my jeans cost much more than your Haggar slacks"; my response is "so buy some cheap slacks and live with the dress code".

I've stayed out of this thread simply because I think flat brim hats look ridiculous, even with no head in em, let alone on someones head, but I have to say that I agree 1000% with this post.
