People just don't want to look like douchebags. That's why they bend the brims.

Low profile 59/50 with a curve. Doesn’t stand 6” off your head and doesn’t have the fold on the side. Looks clean!

If u want flat buy a flat brim. If u want bent buy one pre curved. Don't bend your flat brim that's as rediculous as straightening out a curved brim

I find that the bent brim does a better job of keeping the mid-afternoon sun out of my eyes.

Can’t understand folks that wear baseball hats with a straight brim. Curved brim all the way.

Flat bros tell other men that you suck c*ck for money and fame. That's why rappers, and entertainers where the flat brim....FYI

Umm...obviously?
ramon ortiz (2 months ago)
whatever don c said is bull, the bent brim is G, is the rapper OG rapper style, the real GANGSTA style, just check the pictures of N.W.A, Snoop Dogg, Biggie, etc... when real gangsta rappers existed and they all wear bent brim hats... 'NOUGH SAID!!!
Alex (2 months ago)
dude, it depends on the size of your head, if you have a big head, you have to wear the bent brim. If you have a small hat, it does not matter.
Sunset Rider (2 months ago)
It’s just a hat to me. Nothing more, nothing less.
Adam (2 months ago)
You bend the brim to keep the sun out of the corner of your eyes.. that's the point. Flat brims are a fad, nothing more.
Greg Herman (2 months ago)
Bend however you like, just for the sake of everyone do not tuck your ears into your hat like a 9 year old would do

my nights Ben brimming there for years it's crazy how y'all just now figuring this out
Neil Blundz (2 months ago)
Get bent
Adam M (2 months ago)
you sound like your acting like your high even tho you clearly have never touched it, the reason not bending the bill started is you don't bend the bill so you can wear it once and return it. which is what everyone did before they caught on now people just do it to be cool.
Neshy (2 months ago)
Completely flat looks stupid on my face, completely bend looks even dumber, a mellow curve always looks great i think. Always kinda envious of people who can pull off a flat brim hat properly though. :D

Or buy a hat with a bent brim
DFS KRAKEN (4 months ago)
Was told many years ago by a hat store guy that fitted flat brims weren't made for bending, something about the shape of the brim,and the hat part being taller, makes then look goofy after bending and it tends too break as well,even way back in the day they sported them flat. He said the best hats too bend were the snap back style or any that come prebent. Many years of buying both styles and bending my own I'll agree with him.

When I see a hat for sale, a flat brim snapback always looks more attractive, but then I put it on my head and it looks disgusting.

Mr. Bill Whittle: i was perusing your back catalogue when I happened upon an extraordinary idea of yours. MR.VIRTUAL PRESIDENT.This NEEDS to happen. I think the time is ripe. It is time the Wild,Wild,West (www lol) got it’self organised against threats both internal and external. This platform ( the web) is the future of the world, and leaving it open to the whims of fate and bad actors is criminal.Imagine: the race for the Virtual President of the W.W.W. What would the conventions look like? What would the news coverage be? What would the new constitution of the GLOBAL W.W.W. Contain? Who would write it? How would it be financed? ( 20$ to vote/ donations / taxes? Discuss) what POWER would it have? How would it be wielded? Would the www be policed? Would the president hire firefighters to destroy viruses? How would the “real countries” react? How could you MAKE them react? Should you make them REACT?would there be a “department of industry” that would write code to replace the corrupt operating systems currently in place?................................................ If you are not thinking about this, you should, because it will happen..and it may not be what you want to see. Your pal ScottThere are billions and billions of dollars out there, looking for a new leadership system

Rick Legendary (8 months ago)
Growing up flat brim hats did not exist. I tried one on...thing looked awkward, I love my caps, wore a slightly brim cap some chic I was dating said that's how girls wear hats. I responded by saying, you ever watch baseball ? Not one player is wearing the brim flat. And not one has a tall tee. This was years ago when they well in style with long shorts
NoJuice (8 months ago)
not the voice i expected.
TheReal_MrBacon (8 months ago)
hats with bent brims block more sunlight than a hat with a straight brim, these hats are supposed to block sunlight whilst being comfortable instead of wearing sunglasses/shades that can some times fall off your head a lot, and sometimes it is hard to find sunglasses that fit the shape of your head and are comfortable to wear. so these hats are an easier option of blocking sunlight than sunglasses. I like hats with bent brims because they do a better job at blocking sunlight, and are a bit more comfortable than flat brimmed hats, and they look better. a hat with a bent brim acts like when you use your hand to block sunlight, and you can still use your hands for other stuff.

truth is that in the projects, kids that get new stuff like caps and hats will wear em flat with stickers still sticking on it n all cos it's a sign that their stuff is brand new and earns them brag points as most of their friends are in poverty. Then these kids some of then became hiphop stars and they brought this trend up n the rest of the idiots saw them on tv n music videos started copying them.

I like a lightly bent brim, it all the depends by the brand, new era brims are way too bent for me, and some flat brims look way too big.
Elian Herrera (8 months ago)
Always curve that brim fellas, if it’s a baseball cap. Nothing grinds my gears more than a baseball hat that’s flat :(
G0Z Holmes (8 months ago)
i want one
circusboy90210 (8 months ago)
if this is the real gq you lost substance points by allowing non gentlement to comment on style and going to the thug side. gentlement if they do wear a ball cap do it like a player does . bent to keep the light out.
circusboy90210 (8 months ago)
there are not virtues to the flat brim. bending ti is to keep the light out of your eyes. only stupid wanabe thugs wear a flat hat with the sticker on it. that is not a fashion statement. it's pure stupidity.

I love bent peak adidas hats or nike 🔥👊

the more bend the more racist
Ascot Top Hats Ltd (1 year ago)
It is simple reason; A curved bent peak fits the contour of the head comfortably, people have different shaped heads, so an individual has to take a standard shape and curve it to their own shape. When new being delivery in bulk a flat also may be easier to package.
