    I am not a hat wearer, never have been so I ask those who wear them this;
    why do I see guys wearing wool toques in the middle of summer?

    A famous song once opined:

    All the bald guys,
    are wearing hats
    When your hair falls out
    it's down to that...

    I’m bald. I like hats.
    I wore hats when I had hair; I wear hats now, I do not care.

    I prefer a beaver fur felt. A bit warm in the summer but duty calls and I'm not into the rice paper stetsons.

    Still got plenty of hair though so not for reasons related to chrome doming.

    Not hats in general, I get the reasons for that, I mean specifically, those wool pull over your ears things that you would want to wear in winter.

    I’m bald and paunchy enough that I look good in a Kangol hat or a ball cap.

    I used to wear a cap at almost all times. Specifically, always a Cardinals ball cap. As I get older, I don’t want a hat on me. I have hair, but I buzz it off. Nowadays, I wear a hat to block the sun outside and less and less for any other reason.

    Not a hat guy. Never have been but I do have a few ball caps I'll wear when the sight of my unkempt hair might cause seizures in old people.

    I do not wear one with a cat, I do not wear one with a bat.

    It doesn't matter where I'm at, I do not like to wear a hat.

    I wear a hat on sunny days despite any fashionable craze.
    My baldness keeps me on my toes for lack of cover is when it shows.

    Some people look good in hats. My father did, both his Navy Chief's hat and a fedora he wore with suits. He cam from a time when men wore hats when properly dressed. He was bald by the time he was 30.

    I have four sons, two were bald by their early 30s. The oldest has passed away. He mostly wore ball caps and looked good. My youngest is in his early 30s. He is bald and wears a ball cap - looks good and maintains a very heavy beard.

    My two other middle sons have receding hair lines. Neither wears a hat all of the time, but some.

    I still have a good bit of hair. I wear hats for sun protection, sometimes a ball cap sometimes a wide brim Fedora, think Indiana Jones. I don't look particularly good but it helps minimize skin cancer.

    Gotta do what ya gotta do....

    I like hats but they don't like me.
    Now the hair has all but gone I need a summer hat for sun protection and a winter hat to keep me warm.

    One of the 'joys' of getting on a bit.
