I started wearing hats when I moved to the sunny north 11 years ago. I quickly discovered that they are handy for eye shades, and for covering bad hair days. Those are frequent, because I often wear a bike helmet. It has a rear view mirror attached, and if I forget the helmet, I try to glance behind me as soon as I hit the road, and see the sky following me. A winter hat is almost essential here, and is also big enough to conceal a sound system to mask the agonized cries of the cattle on their way to your tables.

I've worn a hat to protect my head from the worst of the summer sun while I was in the southern States. Otherwise I can't be bothered. Don't like the hassle of the wind blowing it off, don't like trying to hide my baldness. I've toyed with the idea of a hat as a prop when I'm performing music, but so far I haven't. But I do wear a hooded coat in winter because I hate the cold wind chilling my ears.

Don't like the hassle of the wind blowing it off, don't like trying to hide my baldness. I've considered using a hat to shield my eyes from the sunlight but I've not tested it, and the obvious choice of a baseball cap seems too modern mainstream for my sense of aesthetics.

So mostly it's protection, comfort wins over style with me, but I like the idea of dressing up in principle.

Sorry about quoting myself above, I must have hit the quote button instead of the edit button :-( But the message itself is what I wanted to say.

I wear a hat for protection from the sun when I'm on the tennis court. Otherwise, no.
