Cheap Toupee?

"The Chicago Uniform" (at least for Guys)

When one person does it, it's an expression of one's individuality, a fashion statement, etc.

However, when everyone does it -- or at least the male of the species -- it instead becomes something else entirely: a de facto uniform. An act of conformity. A cliche.

What am I talking about?

The requirement, apparently, that every guy in Chicago between the ages of 15 and 75 goes around wearing a baseball cap.

(And no, if you're bald and have a paunch, simply wearing a baseball cap doesn't suddenly make you young and hip.)
