My buddy tells me it was born out of the "sticker" trend where kids would leave the sticker on bill to show it was new......now the bill is left flat to show its new?


I still think Lebron James should get on T.V after a big game and roll the bill like a John Deere hat at a 4H event and see how long it takes to catch on....

The way I have seen it the sticker/flat bill thing happened at the same time.  It's been going on for years.

i know.  i was always taught that a hat bill should have a nice curve to it.

i should take one from one of my students, pick off the sticker with my fingernails, curl the bill properly and hand it back saying "there, much better" and post the results

Whats worse is they leave the stupid sticker on the brim.
 



Every hat I have ever owned spent the first week or so rubber-banded around a can of soup and spray starched to get a good curve going

I like the flat bills.  It's an easy to spot visual clue that the wearer is a fucknut and to be avoided.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:53:29 AM EDT
Started in the inner cities.... been like that for at least a decade.  I made it my own note that I avoid people who wear hats like that as they tend to be major douchebags or gang banger wannabes.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:53:36 AM EDT
It's to show everyone how "fresh" you are.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:53:48 AM EDT
i remember when i switched up how i folded  the bill on my hats from a single crease in the middle (a-frame) to the full rolled curve....that was the off season between coach pitch and player pitch baseball.

ah, the good 'ol days...

First I saw it was the motocross culture with Metal Mulisha....Mid 90's??

But around the same time I also saw it with the Ghetto culture with the FUBU crowd.

I thought it started in the 90s.  I was thinking vanilla ice but I can't find photographic evidence.  Maybe the skaters?

That's a totally different style of hat, not just a hat with a flat bill.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 6:00:34 AM EDT
Skateboard culture.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 6:00:49 AM EDT
The idea is to have your hat look like you just stole it, even to the point of leaving the sticker on it.

This.


Although, we've got one of those shops in our mall where there's eleventy-billion different colors of hats for each sports team, all of them with about 8.7x10^87 stickers plastered all over the fabric.  I'm tempted to go in there, find a very expensive, near one-off Cards hat, buy it, and then proceed to take off the stickers and tags, throw them away in the store can, and walk out shaping the brim properly.  All while rubbing dirt into the wool.

Yep. These hats are a pretty reliable shitbag indicator, with a better than 90 percent efficiency rating, in my experience.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 6:05:36 AM EDT
same time they started getting ones 3 sizes too large so they can tuck their ears in to them.  I just want to slap them off their heads and run.  Its not like they could catch me with their pants around their ankles.

This has been talked about a few times.

Basically, it's done to show it's new. "Hey look at me, I've got money for new stuff". It's the complete opposite of someone who buys a single hat and wears it while doing hard work for years in that hat.

I've also read it makes it easier to swap hats at will. Walk into a store with a "brand new" hat with all the stickers and tags attached and leave it there while grabbing a new one off the shelf without paying.

Looks almost as stupid as the hicks who fold a big crease in their hats or the frat boys who artificially age/fray their hats.

Fashion trends that need to die:
1) Flat billed baseball hats
2) Baggy pants worn down around your thighs with your boxer skivies sticking out
3) Earlobe plug earrings that stretch your earlobe out (or whatever the hell it is called that makes you look like Shaka Zula)
4) Dudes wearing those over-sized fake diamond earring studs

Fashion trends that need to stay around longer:
1) hot chicks wearing skin tights leggings or yoga pants (with no shirt/sweater covering their rear end)

No. This is a trucker hat.
























Trucker hats has mesh backs, and are generally well used

All of his bills are curved, some more than others.  His Puma hats are usually as you see them in your picture.
