Q for the PLEBA ladies

i'm a young guy (22yrs old) and i work at a hat store, and we just got in the military style hat that bono has popularized. we've got the camo print as well as the olive green. I am thinking of buying them to wear backwards like B-man (i know it is lame to copy him, but i legitimatly like the look)

My question is this, do you like that look on guys? Do you think those hats look good or not? forwards vs. backwards? Please consider that i am NOT bono, nor do i look like bono, so try to make an unbiased comment, not whether or not bono looks good in them, but whether a joe-nobody you see in a mall would look good.

Also consider, my hair is cut short (basically the pop-chop) , so i would not have the long shaggy hair sticking out the back like B does.

i know that i shouldn't care if others like it or not as long as i do, but i'm still interested in your fashion advice ladies, THANKS.

I'm not around pleba that much, anyway ... I like that look on guys, but you have to consider that bono's military style was a "performance" fashion so you can add some military "details" in your wardrobe, cuz if you dress all like that you will look like an olive

It depends on the guy, in my opinion. Some guys can pull off wearing certain hats certain ways, others can't.

I don't know what you look like, but I would say wear it if you want to wear it. I personally love the military style hat look, but only backwards. Forwards, it looks a little too military for my taste.

And IMO, any guy who emulates Bono's style is cool!

I wish I could say I haven't been around PLEBA a lot lately. I don't know what to say. I think, in general, that hats on guys look dorky! ...including, especially including Bono's

I like the camo bucket hats. I hate the way backwards hats look, mostly b/c it's what my boyfriend does as a last resort when he has nasty bedhead or his hair is dirty.
