You dedicated a whole post to your caps. Impressive.

I've always liked the plain Nike ones with just the tick.

Guy who wears cap are cute. There is tis boyish charm in them. Usually I get nike, nautica or some fisher’s man hat for my daddy. Cos he paints (watercolour) alot outdoor. His collection are mostly in beign and navy colour. I personally like Ed Hardy (think the koi one is soooooo damn cute:P), but seein so many B-grade stars here wear them:( So I decided not to buy...Anyway, I find gers who wear trucker hat damn sexy.
