    just saw the black/white nike trucker. how ugly it looks like a homemade job the way the nike is stuck on the front.

    definately going to wait for the new coloured reebok ones to come out

    bad job nike or should i say GINEPRI is that who they are for?

    Yes, they would be much much better if they only had the swoosh instead of that huge patch that says Nike on it. Later

    The 'swoosh' logo is recognised everywhere, nothin' else is needed. I guess subtlety is something you learn(?).

    Nike trucker hat

    Aren't the trucker hats supposed to be somewhat "retro"? I think they are supposed to be "ugly". Isn't ugly cool?

    You can thank Ash Ketchum from Pokemon for single handedly spurring the return of the trucker hat. WT sheek baby.

    I love trucker hats, the shoddier they look the better, it's sort of meant to look home-made, i want a Von Dutch one!

    I've got truckers, and they seriously are like more comfortable. They are bomb, and look awesome if you wear them backwards (IMO). THe Nike one and Reebok though? Ugly. Gotta just get plain colored ones.

    lol...they look ridiculous backwards...wtf is wrong with you PCMD! The reebok one is ridiculously comfortable, specially for people with big heads (like myself, i can sparsely wear reg caps with my head and hair now getting big) Von dutch is gay and so is thierry henry. Screw arsenal, go milan.

    IMO trucker hats are coming back as part of the resurgence of 80's paraphernalia. I've got so many old trucker hats stuck away somewhere, it's not even funny. That said, in the 80's, these were not considered "trucker hats", they were just baseball caps.

    The point of the trucker hat is to have the ugle Nike poofy front that exhibits that of 70's truck stops. However, the new version, a fitted hat by Reebok is a much better hat for tennis. I haven't seen anyone wearing a Nike trucker hat for tennis or exercize, it's a show item. The reebok one is for sport.
