Apparently now I have told him to change his appearance to avoid harrassment. No, I said that women don't have a choice. Not the same thing. This guy has met me, so knows I do not present myself conservatively. In fact, I am marginally more 'alternative' on a daily basis than he is, yet I don't get harrassed on the street. Maybe it's an attitude thing?

>>When Brits and Americans argue about petty things like which side of the road is superior for driving on and odd tidbits of slang.<<
Haven't we grown out of that yet? I'm sure that if it does happen it's either in jest or by someone who's under 15.
Driving on the right/left? I am continually swapping. Live with it. Surely having to speak a different language when you go to another country is more of a challenge.

Pastey, flat caps are fine, but I want a big peak to keep the sun out. A simple flat topped cap would do, and I have bought them online, but always too small. I never see them in shops.

On caps, have you considered an Afghan karakul?
A style very well adapted to either hot or cold conditions
On long hair, I can remember being occasionally accosted inappropriately during my long haired days.
They usually changed their minds very quickly when I casually flexed a 6"/16cm wide biceps at them in profile.

The Karakul looks a bit cosy for my purposes, and crucially, lacks a peak. Basically, I just want a cap which does what a baseball cap does. Obviously, the simple answer would be for me to start liking the baseball cap.

A panama hat would be more stylish.

I have a Panama, they are indeed awesome. I would make sure though that you get one that fits properly (tightly) so that it doesn't blow off in the wind.
quotes Posted Yesterday
I already have two Panama hats, one for the garden and one for best...they're great, but a cap has its place, too.

If we're selecting hats for Quotes, then how about a sombrero?
Or a more practical suggestion might be a hunting cap. Maybe not the kind with ear flaps - there are types that are similar to baseball caps but don't hug the scalp so much.

Checking and re-checking the paperwork sent in for debiting the clients.
Next month, realise that I STILL sent the wrong file, or correctly named file with wrong content.
Fiddle and tweak to compensate current files for past errors, and hope the Project Manager can accept.
It doesn't make things easier when I have about seven parallel projects each month, but not always the same seven... two or three may change at every month end.

On caps, one of the nice things about retiring from the army is that I don't have to put a right-to-left curve in the bill any more.
Instead, I can go back to wearing it flat, Okie style.

Lusus, a hunting cap would be fine, I'll pop into a hunting shop when I next pass one, thanks.
