The only reason for doing that is to upset people. Mission accomplished.

The real question is why do people in Switzerland even wear Baseball caps? Other than a softball game organized by US ex-pats, I've never seen anyone here who was really interested in baseball!

Sunhats to shield the face from the sun. is a reasonable reason. However, the back to front hats seems to be a growing trend amongst quite young children - providing no sun protection at all and one of my pet hates. C'mon parents. Turn those hats the correct way.

The US of A is 'cool' therefore all those young people wearing caps incorrectly are merely aping the 'coolest' of those from the US of A - rappers.

Don't try and understand it, it is fashionable and the young do it, don't try to understand the young, only fear them.

Re: It should be forbidden to;

Wear baseball caps perched high on the head (is it so they don't ruin their hairdo?), the ones with the mesh at the back, are they called trucker caps? I always want to give them a tug down, whereas I'm always tempted to pull up the jeans of young guys who wear them with the crotch hanging around the knee area.
