Why don't men wear visors ?

I can only remember Andy Roddick wearing a visor in 2004 but stopped because his friends made fun of it.

Visors suit me way more than caps do and I want to wear one, but why is it that men don't wear them ?

Unfortunately, I think it's just because it's not the "manly" thing to do, if you know what I mean; but then again a lot of gold players where them.

I assume guys don't wear visors cause their hair is too short. I personally find caps uncomfortable and the idea of all that sweat in the cap is frankly kind of nyasty.


SO i think u should just wear what u want. don't live according to other people's expectations.

Didn't Andy Roddick used to wear visors? I think his coach told him to ditch it at some point.

I think he suited them, whilst he still had an abundance of hair

Re: Why don't men wear visors ?

Why are visors better suited to people with long hair ?

I don't have long hair - all all, yet I still look wayy better in visors than caps. My head is too big for caps

I assume women wear visors so that their hair can go through the hole at the top.

But if you look way better in visors what exactly is the problem?

I wear visors. I'm a guy...it's no big deal, you just look like Fred Couples or another golfer. I'm comfortable, it keeps my vision alright, it shouldn't matter.

Why don't men wear visors? Because visors are wimpy, that's why. Next topic, please.

Visors don't provide any sun protection.
