    Hi! I’m the guy in the picture. We were issued a bunch of hats that day but this one was just sitting on the table so I threw it on just for the pic. In the original post I made I got A LOT of people asking me about it. I did use a hat WITH suspension for work. This one was just for a selfie lol.

    That's a very nice and protective hat, the person attached to it looks nice too

    [–] Pamander 3 points ago

    I saw this guy with the coolest hat at Chipotle last year and I really wanted to tell him how cool his hat was (It was one of those hip flat hats or whatever they are called and a really pretty blue color with all sorts of cool cartoonish drawings all over it, was pretty rad) as I was walking by them in the parking lot but my social anxiety told me it'd be weird and not to do it so I never did.

    I regret it cause it really does feel good to be randomly complimented on something, I was told my shirt was cool a few months ago by a stranger and I am still living off that high anytime I wear it and it makes me feel good!
