Random Commuter Observation

I have noticed from time to time in my daily wanderings a certain phenomenon that puzzles me, namely that of certain young men wearing brand new-looking baseball caps with all the manufacturer's stickers still stuck to the brims.

I say this puzzles me because I'm sure there's a point to this look but I don't really understand what it is. What, exactly, is it meant to signify? Purchasing power? Too cool to care? Pure anti-establishment statement? Frankly, I think the practice fails on all of these grounds.

Then again, when worn this way such caps simply look stolen. Perhaps that's the image these sportsmen seek to create.

Just curious.

Maybe they're Minnie Pearl fans?
