    Do you eat with your hat on?

    Sitting, at the moment, in a fairly posh Italian restaurant. There's a bloke opposite with his wife, probably early 40s & he's wearing a cap. I would never in a million years dream of doing this. Is it because I'm old? Have fashions changed & left me behind? What's the world coming to?

    No - I'm 30 and I would find it bizarre if I saw a man wearing a cap inside a restaurant. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, I'd just think he was a bit of a weirdo.

    American culture

    Men and women wear baseball caps, and think nothing of eating with them inside.


    I think it is rude, but would not say anything as it doesn't really affect me.

    No, I would never wear a hat indoors never mind sit at at table with one on. Also, I would never use social media when sitting at the table either!

    Re: Do you eat with your hat on?

    I might if I was eating outdoors (but rarely wear a hat if not playing golf so that kinda muddies the water a bit)

    No way indoors but just because i'm indoors not because i'm eating (& you don't need a hat indoors, (Gandalf was a bad un for this) )

    Also folk that drive with golf/baseball cap on, why? I just wouldn't
