Groupthink alive and kicking right there. Almost every single woman wearing those hideous cloche hats.
It was interesting fashion at the time.
Far far better than the ubiquitous baseball/trucker shit caps now worn by everyone - even often backwards by actual adults.

Give me Tibor any day over the baseball caps.

Yeah but it’s not ‘either / or’ is it?
It’s possible to hold two thoughts in your head - baseball cap and cargo shorts are the absolufe nadir of sclubbiness, and cosplaying Tibor is laughably ridiculous.
 
Having said what l said....despite baseball cap wearers looking silly....if he has a good heart and is a decent man i'll value him very much.

it's all gone downhill now, everything. Not so long ago cricketers wore the traditional baggy green, but now everything including behaviour has gone to the lowest common denominator, and the baseball cap symbolises that. Men are not real men anymore.

I don’t know about that one shooey. I see quite a few baseball caps here going back through the years.

no, they are not baseball caps, they are the `baggy green'. No silly advertising all over the shirts either, and real men with real jobs (not professional sportsman...silly jobs).

No baseball caps. Even I know it's the baggy green.

Which is functionally so similar to a baseball-style hat that normies from most of the world wouldn’t know the difference. Like saying ‘oh that’s not a two button suit, it’s a 3 roll 2!’

Theres nothing wrong with, and it totally appropriate - to wear a baseball cap playing baseball or to wear a baggy green playing cricket . Sheesh theres nothing wrong with a USA farmworker or labourer wearing a baseball/trucker hat on the job.

Its wearing them outside USA everywhere - even in restaurants . Yaaaargh.

Who remembers the research in the 60s when they compared the baldness of hat-wearing bus conductors and hatless drivers? Which one had less hair loss?

I don’t think you can make much of a claim for good behavior by australian cricketers at any time or do you consider ‘sledging’ to be the pinnacle of gentlemanly conduct?

See Don Bradman and the Bodyline Series. Compared to the English, the Aussie team was once (long ago) made up of gentlemen.

Yeah I heard about that too which kinda adds to my point!

It’s all a bit silly trying to hold up the ‘gentlemen’ of the past as paragons of urbane and polite society just because they wore top hats, frock coats and button boots. These were the same people who held others in indentured servitude and shit all over the working class while they were sipping their tea from China cups and nibbling cucumber sandwiches.

I don’t know the names of the Australian equivalents of Ford, Astor, Vanderbilt etc but I don’t much doubt they were just as vicious a set of bastards.

My intuitions must be correct about grown men in baseball caps and shorts looking like children. Jordan Peterson says the same thing, and others do too. I think it is because in living memory men always dressed better, so when they dress down it looks odd.

Welp, guess it’s time I bought my first baseball hat then.

hmmm. JP and I are of the same vintage. In my "living memory", the 80s and 90s spawned the adults-wearing-shorts-in public-with-or-without-ball hats. Nor did children only sport shorts and caps. I'd hazard a guess that if we transport current members back to then, most of us would be shabby dressers. I sure was. But I grew up in the hood.

Long cargo shorts are an abomination.

A group of us once wore our fathers' short brimmed fedoras with faux feather in junior high in ironic fashion to get a rise out of mall-goers because the picture of adolescents in fedoras was a peculiar look. In the late 70's.

People in boater hats are generally seen as peculiar for part of some circus or sideshow. I've never heard someone say "bitching boater".

I find tailored shorts strange.

I haven't worn shorts in public since the 90s when the guard at the regional government palace in Trinidad Bolivia told me to show some respect and not to dress like a child. But it was a Ron John surf shop tee! Men did wear long pants and buttons up shirts in public. Now, I did not dig on the black poly slacks and rayon printed shirts with RayBan belt cases. But I saw the light. In the end, like in Winter, it is all about thermoregulation and wearing long pants in hot weather, for me, is as comfortable as I vaguely remember shorts to be.

Do I wear ball hats in public? From time to time with casual attire when a toque is too warm and some head cover is desirable. I don't find it causes any sartorial dissonance when wearing something like shirt jacket or field jacket. Brown in town.

I think wearing tailored clothing to sporting events is whack too. At least the ones I frequent. I wear a ball hat when I take the grandkids to the monster trucks, hockey games, etc.

You should be rattling on about the young'uns who wear "bottoms" like sweat pants and gathered hems like pjs or thermal long underwear as everyday clothing.
 
Never wore a baseball cap and sportswear as a kid, and never wore tracksuit pants in public, never liked the look. My uniform was always trousers, western shirt and conservative dress shoes. I have always been the same way since l was a kid.

Some of Jordan's videos are good and some are not. No man imo is truly wise, wisdom only comes through spiritual enlightenment gained through a life time of undergoing practise of the ancient teachings from the Masters.

Come on man. You blather on about the ancient masters but you’ve been taken in by Donald Trump so your ability to judge character is non existent and that makes anything you have to say about pretty much anything null and void.

Just one point before l get back to clothes.....

there are probably a lot of things you might not know about Donald Trump. Most of the media never reported on many of his accomplishments due to their anti Trump stance. During office he did many of great things for the people. Here are some of those things:

70 Ways President Trump Has Changed the Nation Over the Past Two Years


The Complete List of President Trump's Accomplishments


Also look up the 200 accomplishments of Donald Trump. It's a pity people don't realise how great this man really is.

I know Rambo, l will get back to clothes now.

Hey Thruth Thruth , lets talk about hats. Here is my experience with the Homburg and Boater hats. They are not the type of hat that many men can pull off, but if you can you can have the world at your feet and can rule the day with great aplomb. It seems like l am one of the few guys who can pull off the boater and homburg, and they suit my face really well, but evenstill I don't wear these hats willy nilly; they need to be carefully selected depending mainly on one's mood, and also the occasion. The boater is the happy hat, and the homburg is the boss man hat, and you wear those hats when you really feel in those moods and have the attitude to pull them off.

Some of my best chats and moments lately have been wearing the boater or the homburg. I find that most people don't even notice what l am wearing (a good sign). I've had numerous compliments from women on my homburg, i've had university girls come up to me and ask me directions and questions and offer seats on the tram while wearing those hats instead of coming up to anyone else. The fact is....if you can pull off the look people are drawn to you, people feel at ease with you.

On Australia day l visited my mum in the hospital. I wore a boater that day and was feeling super cheeky. I channeled my inner Rodney Dangerfield and had the whole ward in stitches laughing, doing crude jokes and making funny voices and facial expressions like Rodney used to do. The nurses even let me into areas closed off to the public because they liked me.

You see....these forum folks are all theory. In reality life is not always what people think it should be. People like well dressed people, people like people comfortable with themselves who don't give a stuff, and people like interesting people who are different. I have even had homeless people come up to me for a chat when i've dressed to the nines with a flower in my lapel and a cravat. Why? Because people know l am good, they sense my good energy and know l don't take myself seriously. That is what it is all about....being a good guy and taking life lightly; people can feel it, that's how you pull it off. If l didn't meditate everyday l wouldn't be able to do it.

Grayson used to wear three piece bespoke suits to sporting events and to the local dog show.

Donald Trump is human scum and one of the biggest pieces of shit to ever live. Everyone knew he was a joke back in the 80s.

Fuck off! If you can't see what a fucking massive piece of shit this guy is and what kind of damage he and his cronies have inflicted not just on the US but the whole world I feel truly sorry for you. Please crawl back to whatever right wing conspiracy shithole you got this crap from and stay there.
 
First sentence of that link refers to the “China virus”.

Blathering on about gentlemanly values in the same breath as Jordan Peterson.

What an absolute clown.

‘Oh everybody loves me and thinks I’m so cool’ - where do we hear that kind of horseshit from on a daily basis?

Shooey
Why not reopen that old dedicated to Donald thread that ran a few years ago? That was often a good laugh.

Sammy, while it may make for entertaining reading in another thread for some people, having seen the train wreck that one post has made in this thread, it is probably not a good idea. There would be too much of this (see below), and that is not good for anyone. In this day and age you are not supposed to have a different opinion; you are supposed to know CNN, NBC, and Washington Post talking points off by heart, and if you don't the mob will come for you.

Here is what happens below when you hear someone with a different opinion. Who is this human? Why it's Triggly Puff.

Oh, come on The Shooman The Shooman , you are being sensitive now.

You can have your opinion on a subject (no matter how asinine) and have shared it here. People also have a right to proffer theirs.

It is never personal and for every CNN, NBC et al, there is Fox, Daily wire, truth et al

I am glad you have wonderful public interactions wearing your homburg or boater and that they feature as part of what you wear as well as looking stylish and flattering. It is great that your features are flattered by wearing such hats. Keep on rocking them in good health. You make the hat not the other way around. I am sure young girls will still give you their seats if you wore your pith helmet, a doo rag. Even bareheaded.

I'm old enough to remember men wearing hats with tailored clothing, including my father, and to have witnessed their disappearance. Today, the rare sight of a man in a fedora or other such hat rarely looks good to me. The hat does not seem to flatter their appearance or personality. I have a couple of colleagues who wear a fedora in winter. It looks good on one of them because he reminds me of an old 1940's cop in a Bogart film. The other looks like a dork.

Your vision of the child represented by peaked school uniform cap and shorts is not shared here. Does every child wear a school uni in Australia or just the posh ones?

My old man wore peaked caps casually in public and he was born in 1918 so whilst you shit on ball hats making men look like children they have been part of the culture in the US and Canada for generations. Many of us play organized baseball growing up. Consumer team-branded ball hats were introduced in the 1940s. Non-sports team branded hats exploded in the 70s. Many of us play organized baseball growing up. Affinity for teams or brands just like tee shirts. The most common choice for sun protection.

Like I said, it is part of the culture.
