thanks for the encouragement folks. I started wearing proper hats when I started getting dark skin spots showing up on my cheeks. Now, I go for a full ring of hat brim to give a little sun cover, and I like them unique, interesting/creative, custom made, and conformed. I fear that there will be a lot of my generation that regrets the ball cap era…no protection at all for ears, neck, and cheeks. Previous generations wore hats with more of a concern for sun protection.
