Title: Bucket Hats
Post by: cloudy on July 13, 2018, 03:12:49 PM
fitted caps been getting too much shine lately. we're in the middle of summer and it's time that the bucket hat got some appreciation. before the boss even knew what a flat bill was, he recognized the importance of protecting ya neck.

good call, good call. in my opinion though, he spent too much time in a flexfit to be able to deem the bucket hat the "creager hat." i think his menikmati part offers a nice encapsulation of his career headwear choices - a healthy dose of both buckets and flexfits throughout, and a dash of beanies here and there.

Puig in this part. I own that exact same Helas bucket hat, the white and blue. It's hard to not make a bucket hat look fedora-ish or safari-ish, it has to fit your head comfortably without sticking out and the brim can't be too long either. The Helas one accomplishes all this and Puig pulls it off in spades.

i nearly shed a tear due to how beautiful that bucket styling was. thing was more textbook than gilligan stranded on that uncharted desert isle.

I was very into bucket hats like 5 years ago, but they got played out fast by chubby Taylor Gang wannabees and college dudes that read Barstool. I need that stench to wear off before I adorn one again.

Creager also rocked the next level safari style hats with the drawstring.

Bucket hats tread a fine line between "fucking stupid" and "pretty fresh". I wonder if I could pull one off?

Ronnie Creager looked pretty fuckin' cool in beanies back in the Menikmati era. Him and Penny, they looked like total G's in those straight beanies that don't fold up at the bottom (like all the modern ones do).

Iíve been thinking about this for about ten years now. Still undecided but I figure once I hit 40 all hats get an auto pass
