OK im interested now, I wear 'beanie' hats in RL on two occasions: its winter here in the UK and I want to put my roof down while I drive = put a hat on or my ears freeze and drop off. Second occasion is when my hair is all stuck up on one side and I need to go to shops, so i put a beanie on.
My GTA character does not get cold ears and he doesn't go to the shops with bad hair, so I have no need for an in game beanie. Having said that Im fully aware that fashion is important to the 'YOOF' of today (guessing 12yo - 25yo?) and then you stop giving a sh*t about following fashion and 'fitting in'. Maybe its cause I don't fall into that young category and i dont give a sh*t these days.
Then another thought, i did say to my friend during SP time "oh I like Michael cause he wears my shorts and shirts" which proves I DO notice and i do care. He has the exact same stuff as me, how tragic for us both!
Now to load up GTA and have a look at these beanies!! See what all the fuss is about!
