I'll be in NY in a week. So excited, can't wait, but thats not the point of this question.
I have a method of packing where I pack from the shoes and moves upwards so it all went pretty smooth until I got to my head. I instinctively reached for my hat bag where my half dozen baseball style caps are kept, and my subconscious wacked me with some advice on NY that I must have heard somewhere and that is "don't look like a tourist or you might get mugged" and "baseball caps make you look like a tourist".
Aside from getting mugged which is something I don;t want because I'll have my most valued Apple possessions with me, I would also like to not offend any locals when I wander around or rock up to restaurants looking like the country hick that sadly, I am.
So to cut to the chase, I need to know what type of hat I should pick up and wear while I'm there (and take home and set a new trend in my home town, or get beaten up, whichever comes first).
To give you an idea, the other clothes I plan on wearing are either black wash like jeans or tan coloured khaki trousers, and some kind of button down long sleeve polo, or tshirt with LS shirt over the top. Fairly basic casual wear I believe.
Do I even need to wear a hat? Well, I expect to be outdoors a lot of the time and I'm a bit thin on top, so apart from the fashion side, it would also be sun smart, so it feels like I should.
Any opinions on hats would be great.
