Leather=Bad

I hate the leather baseball hat. It's so....trashy. And I know, it's leather and therefore should be considered classy. But it's not. It's so trashy that when I think of it, pictures of pale, bleach blond 40 something women with fat asses and turquoise jewelry flash in my head. There may or may not be droopy cleavage involved in this picture of mine-ok, there is, and perhaps this is why I hate the leather cap more than I should...

It also conjures up that nasty stale smoke smell that often seeps out of this imaginary leather cap wearing hag. You know the smell-it's the one that lingers for at least a half an hour after they leave the room-it's so bad that when they are with you, you can actually see the smoke coming out of their pours. And they always have a rhaspy voice, and a constant cough.

These women? They go to flea markets in Maine on Harley's and buy those pictures of lions on foil paper-the kind you used to win at local fairs when you popped a balloon with a dart. They drink coffee from Cumberland Farms and think that Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is a delicacy.

In conclusion: Cotton baseball caps=good. Leather baseball caps=bad.

Thank you. Class dismissed.

Personally I've always hated the baseball cap, no matter what its construction!

I used to wear baseball hats all the time, when I had hair. Go figure. But for the past 7-8 years, they just sit around in my house, all 30 of 'em or so, collecting dust.

But never, ever a leather cap. Leather pants? That's another thing altogether (for a woman, that is). Heck, I'd take that nice, shiny vinyl that some woman wear as pants over a leather hat.

Just goes to show you I ain't a snob.

I also hate Harleys, though. How does a loud muffler give anyone a rush? It's beyond me.

Well, the baseball hat actually rocks my world when a cute boy wears it backwards-even regular is hot. I don't know what it is...it gets me every time.

Harley's are cool too, but only when a particular type of person has them...not the type I described.

Hmmm, I've got a leather biker jacket, but apart from the odd belt and wallet, that's the only leather object I posess.

Im like you, I love a cute "boy" in a backwards baseball cap. And you are definitely right on the mark with the irony of wearing leather. It's expensive so it seems as though it would appear classy, instead it appears trashy. Why is that? The only leather that actually looks nice are leather shoes and leather bags. Other than that, leather should stay on the animals. It looks better on them.

I actually like the leather jacket-unless it has spikes and studs and such. I own 2 leather jackets and I think that a good looking man in a leather jacket is hot.

But again, I guess it depends on the person who's wearing it...

Now shoes and pocket books-we all know I love them!!
