Old School for this guy. I'm 6'9 and have a big head. New school looks like I'm wearing a band aid on my forehead.

Oh, and in my opinion Imperial Visors are the best. http://www.imperials...oduct.php?cn=85

I convinced our club to buy four colors embroidered with our club logo. They stock them, and they sell a ton.

I could not agree more.  Every time I try on a "new school" visor, I feel like I look like I'm wearing a headband or something.  I don't know how those things gained popularity, and I don't understand the sentiment that they are somehow more mainstream than "old school" visors.  If you're gonna wear a visor, wear a visor.

If I was going to wear a visor I'd go new school but seeing I always have a bad hair day and it sticks up like a mess I don't wear a visor only a hat.

Full size for me.  It's actually the item I'll usually buy as a souvenir when I play a cool course on vacation or get an opportunity to play an exclusive or famous club.

Beyond being classic, they're comfortable, and block way more sun than a baseball cap for me.

Fwiw- I wouldn't wear a new school visor if you paid me.  They look like you ought be playing women's beach volleyball or something.  Or you really wanted to try wearing a visor, but don't have the swag to go all in.

They have started to make a comeback of late, especially in the south.  Almost any decent track will have at least one type available.  Most of them are Imperial Visors with the courses logo.  Pick out your favorite course logo and see if they have them available.

OLD SCHOOOOOOL!  Love the big brim B'stone visors Freddie and Stuart sport.  Been trying to get one for years.
I've been thinking of going back to a visor for a while now. I prefer the look of a cap, but visors are definitely cooler in summer.  Maybe I will just buy one visor for really hot days only. But am going a little thin right on top so might get sunburned.  Quite the conundrum.

If I do get a visor it will be old school for sure. I grew up with them in the days before caps and they were cool.
