And one of these that I actually wear. :D

So what makes you think you look any less of a pratt for wearing one rather than the other? :wink:

One cooks my head and makes sweat run in my eyes. The other keeps the sun and sweat out of my eyes and doesn't cook my head.

Hats don't really suit me anyway, so, with the possible exception of a fez, they all look rather silly on me.

I can relate to that...

...just before I called it a night I took my Bell Slant down off the shelf where it sits gathering dust ( :facepalm: ) and tried it on in the mirror; first time I've done so since I started shaving my head...

...F*cks sake! I look like the f*cking Mekon wearing a dustbin lid!

Thank God for the Specialized Max XL I haven't worn since I bought it; there's no dignity in growing old! :cry:

Hi, my helmet was unfashionable when Noah was a lad.

Whatever new one you pick will still be a crime against looking good.

Naffest. Product. Ever.

I must confess to wearing a tweed trilby on the Guvnor.

Why do they all make you look like a Super Marion Mega Mushroom?
