I think its dumb to actually buy one like that. I have a few hats that are in pretty crappy shape but thats because I've worn them nonstop for years on end.

Y'know those bandwagon fans that get mentioned from time to time... to time.. to time... to time... to time. . . ?

Those hats are for them, so they can "pose" as long time fans... Image

Crosby has to do something with his old hats, no?

It could be worse. They could have gone along with the retro 80s thing and made them stonewashed torn denim.

I remember when this style of hat was very popular when I was in high school. I never understood it then, and I still dont. I have some dirty and ragged hats, but that is from wearing them.

buying any clothes, be it hats or jeans or whatever, with holes in them is stupid. If you buy a pizza do you want 3 slices eaten by the time it gets there? It just makes it easier to ruin them completely. I think that style is horrible.

it's still popular whether it's hats or jeans. and the funny thing about it is that often times the ones that are made to look worn and old are more expensive than ones that look brand new... pay 20 bucks for a regular pair of jeans, take them home, grab a razor blade and make them look old, you'll save like 30 bucks!

Just you -- it has a certain asthetic to a certain audience. Obviously you're not in that targeted audience.

Not too old to understand, just to intelligent to understand. Pre-worn out crap is moronic. They've been doing "relic'd" guitars for a few years now that are already beat up, so they have a vibe of a guitar that you've owned for years without having to.

But then there wouldn't be any left after Malkin snatched them up.

and to add to this thread, I have a blue Pens hat that I paid maybe $5 on clearance a few years ago. Wearing it to a lot of inline games, running, etc., has caused it to probably rival Crosby's hat as far as being worn out and nasty. In fact, the hat doesn't even move if you were to shake it.

Not that I haven't bought something that was frayed before, but in this case I saved $15 :)

I am old and I kinda dig the hat.

Sid made famous the salt/sweat stained look, when it comes to hats. But before him it was Pokey Reese for YOUR BUCCOS.

Ah I remember my ratty pens hat. I bought it right before they were taken out by florida in the east finals. I had it up until 3 years ago, when i sacrificed it to the gods of drunkery. In a desparate move, i gave it to my friend in the car to prevent him from vomiting all over his monte carlo.

Which is the same thing i want to do to these hats when i see them.

You could make $20 if you sell it.

That's the style now.

People also buy ripped jeans.

Nothing beats 80s ripped jeans though.
