The Cap Doesn’t Fit By Clinton on June 2, 2009 | Filed in Essays | 3 comments so far What can I say? The man doesn’t like baseball caps. Share this:FacebookTwitterRedditEmailPrint Related
Baseball caps are utilitarian at best. The fact that they’re worn as “fashion” nowadays says much about the degeneration in public taste.
I agree with Daniels that they lend no dignity or air of intellect to their wearers, especially when worn outside a relevant setting (such as a lake or baseball stadium) by idiots who can’t even wear them *properly*.
Ah well. De gustibus non est disputandem.
Jason, in spite of the flippant wording of my post, I do agree. It seems our attire nowadays is either uncouth or obsessively concerned with the latest trends (which are not mutually exclusive, of course). There’s not much interest in timeless style any more.
I think someone can look intelligent in them. But he is right, no one can look dignified in them. “Dignified” is the sort of word you’ed never find in modern media. I think TD was kept in a timewarp when he came back from his travels in Africa, although that not a bad thing.
