All you have to do is look at all the doofuses (btw, just what IS the correct plural of 'doofus', anyway?) who persist in wearing their trucker hats 24/7, indoors or out, to know that men in hats have never gone away and are still with us.

Although since most of these hats have some sort of slogan/logo/saying on it, a case might be made that hats have become more of a wearable bumper sticker by which we can display our thoughts, opinions, or loyalties.
