The Internet Is Divided Over This Flat Bill Cowboy Hat

At this point, the fashion world just confuses me more than anything.

Seems like every other day, something that is on the “cutting edge of fashion” pops up on my social media feed and it makes me immediately turn into the old guy shaking his fist at the sky.

Everything that is supposedly “modern fashion” just seems stupid to me. And don’t even get me started on fashion shows and red carpet events, where models and celebrities wear strange garments of clothing that have more monetary value than my entire net worth.

But here enters this unique cowboy hat, if you could even call it that. I’m not sure what exactly defines a cowboy hat, though it is one of those “you know it when you see it” types of things, isn’t it?

I think that’s why the internet isn’t exactly sure what to think about this hat, which is basically a brimless cowboy style that is instead paired with a flat bill (and what appears to be a rope belt).

Go ahead and take it in real quick:

How are you feeling about it? There’s something so wrong about it, right? But then again, it’s certainly not the worst looking hat you’ve ever seen?

Believe it or not, the mash-up hat actually has a name, and is for sale. Or at least it was, before all of the available “Texas Bandillo” hats went flying off the shelves.

Clearly there’s some demand for the hats if they’re out of stock. However, it seems as though there’s an equal amount of people that don’t get what the hat is supposed to be.

Just for fun, I personally think this hat would be perfect for the following:

-Those who enjoy “Bro Country,” or produce it

-Your trying to make a fashion statement in a post-game NFL press conference

-People who want to “feel” like a cowboy without the big ol’ brim getting in the way

-Florida Georgia Line (oh wait, I already said Bro Country, didn’t I?)

Only time will tell if this style of cowboy hat will catch on, though I’m going to go ahead and say that I hope it doesn’t. Let cowboy hats be cowboy hats, and let flat bills be flat bills.

But enough about what I think, let’s see how the internet reacted to this unique cap:
