baseball caps + korea

i haven't been going around the blogosphere for a while.. just visiting a blog or 2 a day... i have so many things in my head, and stuffs that i need to finish and/or settle. my mind's mostly blank, and im mostly in a stare...

but as i was browsing through my past albums.. i saw this.


(the photo was taken from hangzhou, china may 2006.. i realized i should be blogging here since ~haha.) anyway... i was obsessed with baseball caps then, and i bought this one from hongkong. i still have alot at home (but was soon "stolen" by my male cousins huu..) and i remembered even saving (before) of getting myself more von dutch and ed hardy's.. until i realized it wasn't really cool wearing one in manila, as it was in hk/china. WHY? because usually, when i wear baseball caps here, they thought i was korean (or maybe because my bff was korean?) and i was having fun with all the guessing games ~hehe. while if im in manila, they thought i was just a stupid "tomboy" whatever...

so i looked through korean street style (now) again, and they're still into it. i usually ask myself, "whats with koreans and baseball caps?"



and if im not mistaken, all my korean classmates (male and female alike) also wear them, if not 24/7, at least 5x a week!

do you know why? or am i that bored for even asking this? (haha.. yes.. i am so!)

How strange, I used to think it was rather hard to pull of the baseball cap and look good, but those photos are all remarkably good!

I am glad you ask - I am curious to know. It is not like one seasonal trend, but an evergreen. Probably, the trends among baseball caps change, but never do they vanish. I, personally, am not much of a fan of this head gear.

I think you really suit this look-not many girls can, but you look stylish!!

I agree with Dapper Kid.. I think it's hard to pull off baseball caps, but these pictures all look so good!

My take on baseball caps: Leave it to the Koreans or else... I'd end up looking like my brother's twin! heehee... I seriously can't pull them off without looking like a MAN...even though I love them...booo! so I just settle for fedoras, fishermans and painter hats...

You're lucky you can wear them and still look CUTE!

I look so weird in baseball caps too. Ahhh I want to go to hangzhou too! My mother's from Fuzhou ! Hahaha so the only places I've been is Guangzhou, Fuzhou, Jiangxi, Yunan, Xian & Macau!

PS. You look as good as those Koreans!

mary said...

You are honestly the only one who looks good out of all of them, in my opinion.
Really!

yesss Korean girls all wear baseball caps, it's the craze here!! i never understood why, i thought it was awful at first, but it's starting to grow on me. i went to a MLB store last weekend and it was PACKED with Koreans trying on baseball caps. i almost feel like buying one, even though i'd never wear it back home. i love how you can wear anything you want in Korea and not look silly. by the way it looks great on you!!! you rock it.

Man, I wish I could pull off a baseball cap! It's just not meant to be :(

kitty kate said...

I used to be into baseball caps too. I used to have all different kinds and wear them with everything.. These girls all looked heaps better than I did.

London summers are incredibly weird, it'll rain all year and then for like a week or two the weather will get amazingly hot, but because of the humidity it just feels muggy and nasty :(

Dapper Kid said...

Oh oh and I tagged you!

Francis Girard said...

I think its a bad hair day thing, esp when you're at uni and you're more concerned with parties and good times...than blow drys - thats why I wore them back then anyway... xf

Times of Glory said...

Wowwwwwwww, not every girl looks chic and stylish in cap (many look more sporty and casual), but you definitely do! I totally love it on you, dear xxxxxxx

Winnie said...

I've never worn baseball caps, they just don't suit me! Maybe I will catch the end of the summer sales when I get to HK!

pammish said...

thanks for all your answers... haha.. so maybe it is:

1. "bad hair day" thing
2. a cultural thing like "kimono"
3. being dressed up, but putting these on so u can say, "i didnt dressed up today (but i just look good) - REALLY.

I don't really like how baseball caps look on me but I think they work really well with long hair - that may be the secret to pulling them off! You look so great in yours!

Thanks for your comment, doll! Haha~ I know, it's so funny about the strawberries. I got hungry mid-photo session. lol, so I went "with it" ;)
PS: I love baseball caps, when running errands or working out (ex. running, tennis, basketball...)
