    Like I said, if I want to eat next to someone in a baseball cap I'll go to Wetherspoons but I don't expect it in a posh restaurant. I guess you and I have different standards.
    I have been to lots of golf clubs that have dress codes but I have never been to a restaurant with a dress code that prohibits hats. We clearly have different views. How are the 1950's ?

    I think the disagreement is on the difference between good manners and outdated manners. Each to their own.

    Re: Do you eat with your hat on?

    Im 25, and I wear caps regularly (I follow american sports so i own a good collection of NBA and MLB 59fifties) when going out. My girlfriend doesnt like the fact that I wear one but if we were in a pub for lunch i would keep it on, if we were going out for a meal somewhere in the evening I wouldn't wear one. It all depends where we are going and for what purpose. I would always remove when in a golf club though, thats just a given.

    Re: Do you eat with your hat on?

    Who wears hats these days ? Didn't they go out with driving gloves ?

    I wear one for golf when it is very hot or cold, but can't think of any other time. Certainly not when going out for a meal.

    Just remembered I will be wearing my flat cap to Goodwood revival this year.

    Very rarely wear a hat so I wouldn't wear one indoors.

    Bad manners, simple as that. I would say using your phone is as bad though!

    Seriously though, I do hate bad etiquette and manners are a big thing for me and my family. Old fashioned that way, but each to their own. I wear hats a lot and always take them off when going indoors.

    Did remind me of this classic from The Sopranos
