What is it with those dickheads that you see wearing a visor cap UPSIDE DOWN with the bill pointing up???

You've seen it... I've seen it... we've all seen it...

Why do people wear those visor cap things upside down with the visor pointing up??? You know the visor things, the ones with only a visor but no top.

I have also seen dumbasses wearing them with the fucking bill turned sideways... what are they trying to do, keep the sun off their right ear???

An excerpt from an article from Stitches Magazine:

"Visors have become the hip and stylish headwear item for today's youth. "They're turning them around backwards and flipping them upside down," says Ed Glenn, vice president of sales, Kati Sportcap Inc., Houston."

Here is an interesting article from the Johns Hopkins University News-letter:

Visor advisory: Avoid 'em
Hey! A Vegas poker dealer called. He wants his headgear back!

BY TOM GUTTING
From the Gutt
Let me start with a disclaimer. I don't know anything about fashion. I don't pretend to. I will claim, however, to have common sense. Not much. But enough to know that wearing visors is stupid.

For most of the year, I thought wearing visors was just a little fad that had caught on among a few over-zealous Phil Mickelson fans.

Then I went to the lacrosse game last Saturday. There were visors everywhere. And it's got to stop.

I had always been under the impression that visors were something my grandmother and other golfers wore on the course. Who the hell decided to make it "cool" to wear visors on a daily basis?

And what's wrong with a good, old-fashioned baseball cap?

The Visor People are pretty much unmistakable.

The dudes usually wear cargo pants, a solid-colored T-shirt and a North Face or EMS vest. And let's not forget the visor.

Gals who have been caught in the visor craze are dressed the same, except they can wear jeans sometimes, too, instead of khakis. Without exception, their hair is pulled into a ponytail. And many times they'll attach sunglasses to the top of their visor.

I don't really care how they look, actually. I'm no fashion maven and have no right to tell people what to wear. But what I want to know is how visors have developed into such a popular method of head dress.

Do people not want to mess up their hair? Is that why they simply won't wear a baseball cap? If that's it, it doesn't really work because the tops of their heads look extremely bizarre with a mass of hair poofing out from the visor's open top.

I guess people might not want to mess up their hair.

That's the only thing I can think of that would universally concern so many different types of people. Almost everybody - except my roommates and m - cares about what their hair looks like.

And, while baseball hats can be cool, your hair isn't so hot once you take them off. That doesn't work so well when you're wanting to flirt with the opposite sex.

It's interesting that the visor fad doesn't seem to be indigenous to any particular group. Such instances are rare with these fashion infatuations.

But all the other traits of fad-dom are present.

Visors come in an amazing variety of hip styles that advertise many hip clothing and shoe companies.

The hot visor seems to be a plain, solid color with an optional Nike or Tommy Hilfiger logo.

Clearly, anyone can wear them around and feel accepted into today's gotta-have fashions. In a way, it's a beautiful thing. There's no discrimination in visor-wearing. I've seen whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics and several other ethnic groups sporting visors.

There also is no established way to wear your visor, which is quite surprising to me and speaks to the free-spirited nature of the young people who wear them. One of the first things a fad usually develops is a strict code of how it may be applied acceptably.

Most people wear visors as you would normally wear a baseball hat.

The Visor People also often rest their Oakley sunglasses on top of the visor when they're not wearing them.

But many people, as I observed Saturday, wore their visors backwards, which was really cool. A couple were turned sideways, and that was fresh, too. Of course, it made them look awkward when they propped up their sunglasses.

One girl even turned her visor upside down and backwards. That was my favorite. My friends and I couldn't stop laughing.


That's really the crux of the matter for me. Other than a few people who feel compelled to wear visors, I've yet to meet someone who finds it attractive.

My experience has been that, if you're with a group of people and a person with a visor comes along, you non-visor-fanatics will feel much closer and have a hearty chuckle.

Visors have become the biggest causes of group laughter since Hammer pants.

People in those giggly groups also feel much better about their own appearance.

And that makes me think that maybe these visor people are just folks hired by the administration to make us feel better so that we'll boost Hopkins' student satisfaction percentage in the next national rankings.

Anyway, let's not dwell on this too much. Visors will probably be gone within a year, replaced by carnival masks or something.

But I would like to give one piece of advice to the Visor People: take lots of pictures of yourself. Put them next to that picture of you from fifth-grade. You know, the one of you with a mullet haircut and wearing jams.

That way you'll always remember what you looked like in your visor.

An excerpt from an article on uncool fashion from WeAintCool.com:

9. Visors worn upside-down and backwards
Lately, this seems to be a fashion kick. What is the number one purpose of a visor? To keep the sun out of your eyes, right? Well, wearing the visor backwards gives a big "Screw you" to society by making the statement that you are not going to follow the crowd, and not wear a visor in the normal way just because 'it is the proper thing to do'. To further this statement, it is also worn UPSIDE DOWN and backwards! If my dear Great-Grandmama could see this outlandish behaviour, I'm sure she'd have a heart attack on the spot! What does this particular fashion tidbit say about you, besides the fact you don't give a damn about the rules!?! It says that you are one bad mamma-jamma. Remember guys, its well documented that girls like the bad boys. If you are a 'nice guy', buy a visor, turn it backwards and upside down, proclaim 'THE ESTABLISHMENT BE DAMNED!', and just watch the respect you get. Additionally, you should spike up all your hair so it sticks out the top like Kid from the greatest Hip Hop band of all time, Kid N' Play.

Another entry:

Date: July 2001

Location: Twin Cities Minnesota

Our first entry into the world of dumb shows us the intelligence of today's mid-western youth. I have noticed a new fashion statement being made recently. You know those sun visors you can get that are just the visor with a band that goes around your head? Well it seems that many of today's mid-western youth have taken to wearing these visors backwards and flipped upside down. When I was a kid people thought wearing a baseball cap backwards was dumb, but the 80's and 90's teens have been topped by a bunch of idiots who think they look cool. Well you don't!! You look like a bunch of dumbshits!!!

Another enlightened individual on the internet said:


Tonight I was watching television and napping and we saw this stupid-ass commercial for Best Buy. It's one of those goddamn ones where we see some dumb-ass guy in a situation where it is inappropriate for him to be fucking with stuff, and he's fucking with it, and then you see him fucking with stuff at Best Buy and having a grand old time. Then he and his lame-o friend are suddenly walking away with shitloads of merchandise sacks with Best Buy in the background and now they have hot girlfriends.

I couldn't help that within this one commercial, the dumb-ass consumer is wearing a visor that is upside-down and backwards. I pointed this out to everyone.

Barb said "Apparently, Best Buy's target audience is Assholes."

It's totally true.

Ahhh

What you dont realise in your obvious visor cap ignorance is the "cult of parnevik"

Jasper Parnevik:
the legendary swedish golfer who always wears his visor tilted upwards so much so that his sponsors logos are on the under side proudly displayed for all to see!!

check out www.cnnsi.com/golf/1999/u.../profiles/

for you to be ignorant of this great ambassador for both golf sweden and upturned visor cap wearers, leaves me feeling somewhat dismayed at your obvious insular "typical" american attitude!

for the love of parnevik edit!

This is more of an assault on that really shitty movie "XXX," but it also addresses the visor issue:


"Can I digress, for just a moment, to talk about XXX? Never in film history has a ticket purchase spoken such volumes about a moviegoer. The wife-beater-clad, baggy-jeaned, visor-ed (preferably upside-down and backwards, thank you) brain-dead pre-teens, teens, and (SHAME ON YOU) twenty-somethings who flooded the theatre, for whom the advertising promise “from the producer and director of The Fast and the Furious” was a selling point, got, I can only hope, the film that they deserved. Should I see the film before dismissing it and the hoards who made it a summer smash? Not on my goddamn dime, thank you very much. You don’t have to get the Ebola virus to know it’d be less than enjoyable, and I don’t have to see XXX to know it sucks to high heaven."

This, the best auction description ever in the history of all eBay auctions, touches on the subject of the upside down visor:


"You are bidding on a 600 Watt AMP + 2, twelve inch MTX subwoofers in an enclosed box. This system is pretty sweet, its got loud distinct bass, nothing to obscene, if you have an SUV or a truck this is perfect, it comes prewired already, just enough to feel your music, but not to irritate anyone else, or you can if you tweak it, or if your a loser who drives a Civic with a type R sticker, racing stripes, blasting really bad rap music through your suburban area with your pretentious "I’m 21 but I’m still in high school girlfriend" while driving with your hand up on the top of the steering wheel exposing your underdeveloped pasty white vitamin deficient arm and wearing your backwards BS upside down visor hat while feeling the tacky as a "Florida vacation" single diamond earring in your ear, If you are this person...with any luck the sun in its precise celestial positioning as you putter on by...will reflect its scorching rays into your earring, bouncing intensely in your rearview, and finally making contact with your eyes through the thin cheap lense of $5 gas station Oakley rip off glasses.. then burning your retnal cones into smoldering melting gobs of ocular material as you are blinded by the purest form of energy in our known universe, and as you scream no one can help or hear you because they don’t know what’s going on since the weed whacker sound of your shitty tiny little muffler which makes the Civic sound like a 747 rages on underneath making everyone turn at disgust and comment to thier husbands or wives how much of a dickweed you are by attaching that automotive abnormality to your stock economical daily driver engineered by Japanese Automotive specialists to fit the needs for entry level business workers in their early 30's, however your pathetic looking $11,000 car which you want to look like a friggin spaceship with redundant ground effects is now out of control since you are blinded, and as your car plunges off the side of a cliff while you scream in the purest form of terror while knowing you have lived a horrid excuse for a life, by doing the bare minimum in every facet of existence, while getting fired from one pathetic job to another, the majority of your time spent slacking smoking dope, getting kicked out of school, polishing your "game" on sweet innocent underage girls you eventually 'de flower' through exhaustive yet succesful attempts to get the date rapist drugs you have stashed in the glove compartment, into your poor victims drinks while offering them to take the "Pepsi Challenge" while making your mother hate you, and your poor father who wishes he had a daughter instead of your pathetic ass, since a girl would be more of a man than you ever were, like the occasion when you were hit in the arm by a wild pitch in little league, then you cried like a fat kid who dropped his ice cream cone, I'm already envisioning you impacting the rocks below, in a spectacular fireball ignited from the residue hairspray from your girlfriend plastered in the fabric passenger seat, blinded by your earring, deafened by the loud "Bling Blingin", and I will smile and roll around on the ground in orgasmic delight while you are consumed by flames whose intense heat and fury will liquefy your bone marrow that I will use to make jelly beans out of and eat them happily at your funeral as midgets dressed like Alex 6005321 from "A Clockwork Orange" dance around your coffin to loud industrial style techno music and strobe lights, and I will sleep soundly at night knowing another successful conquest of Darwinism has been attained. So...you can either use the system I'm selling like the fore- mentioned guy did, or you can buy it from this Cadet and use it properly and enjoy the compliments people will give you as you pass and let them listen to your outstanding taste in fine diverse music. Disclaimer: -No..Im not crazy...Following my 8 years of Military Service as a Naval Aviator, I plan to be a screenwriter. And no, you cant hire me...yet. I almost forgot, the RESERVE is UBER low, like dirt cheap. Shipping might be a bit expensive so if anyone is close to THE CITADEL, in Charleston South Carolina I can arrange a delivery, or you may pick it up. Thank you, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. My profile and feedback is immaculate. Thank you. EMAIL [removed] if you need to get in contact with me for any reason."

From the Penn State University... an article making fun of people trying to chase trends:


"Recipe for a typical PSU male

Start out with one Jeep bumping with either Limp Bizkit, Eminem or DMX, add Abercrombie garb with a visor (which is turned backwards and upside down for maximum effect and is worn fashionably at night when there is no sun).

Top it off with a sleeveless Gap fleece and a cell phone."

"upside-down backwards tennis visors

i'm a little out of it, so maybe this has been going on for a while, but what exactly is this about?

I was in O'Hare airport in Chicago and I saw 3 different teenage boys wearing upside down backwards visors. It kind of looks like they're trying to catch something with this scoop on the back of their heads--like it's part of some weird game. (Fashion IS a weird game, isn't it?)

Anyway, does this trend have a pop star antecedent that I don't know anything about (because I don't have the MTV)? Or is it something far more sinister? (ha, never mind that. i already know that it is.)

i'm excited to climb aboard the upside-down backwards tennis visor wearing bandwagon, but i think i need a little more information first. if i just jump right onto it, i could later find out that it's something that neo-nazis wear to say to other neo-nazis, "Hey look at me! I'm a neo-nazi too! We can be friends!" which isn't something i want to accidentally say via my choice of headgear."

A creative and understanding person said the following:


"In the spirit of being a true American™, with all the nationalistic rights and privileges thereunto appertaining, I have decided to declare my own personal war!

Beginning today, every college boy who wears a golf visor is an "enemy combatant." If worn backwards or upside down, that person is a terrorist. If worn backwards AND upside down, that person is officially on the axis of evil."

Why question others fashion sense? Clearly it is about fashion instead of function and I think that it can look okay. I'm sure that there are people who think the way you dress is funny as well.
