Hats Off - Photos

A rare example of an all-denim family photo where the denim isn’t the most awkward part of it.

    I like little Eminem on the far right…he’s goin’ along with this crazy thing, but he’s keepin’ his cool intact.

    Wow……Total Canadian Tuxedo’s…Denim Jeans and Denim Jacket…Priceless

  3. Stevo says:

    Come on, everybody. Let’s gather ’round the hat box. Everyone pick a very special hat.

    I know these lovely people and they not only do themed pics – they do themed parties (great ones), themed house decor, themed trips, etc. A really fun bunch! Who posted this pic…………….Luke??? He’s the little kid on the left….famous in his own right!

    Oddly enough, I think this picture is cute.

  11. RYNO says:

    The President, Vice President, and CEO of Levi Strauss…and family.

    That is my family, I am not even kidding. Worst partvis the guy posed laying down is my dad. I go on this site everyday and when I saw this I was shocked and could barley catch my breath, I laughed so hard.

    Oh, and the person that says this is from the 90′s you are right. I am 16 and this was taen the year before I was born.

    Also, I get together with most on a weekly basis. We all live super close XD.

  13. Alan says:

    Well that caps it off nicely. Brim full of ideas.

  14. Mimi says:

    I give them a “hats off” for effort! Do you realize how difficult it is to get that many family members in the same place these days?

  15. SoMuch2Say says:

    I like the sombrero! That’s HOT!

  16. skyeleo says:

    I bet they bought the giant 8×10 for max-hat exposure.

  17. Skipster says:

    How come we never see people wearing denim shirts in the real world? Can you only buy them thru your local portrait photographer?

    • Ryan says:

      I used to own denim shirts back in the early nineties. Luckily, they were quickly outdated. Seems like the right era for this picture, frizzy perms, hats worn backwards with bangs in the front. Early nineties perfection.

  18. Amanda says:

    I was thinking, that’s a lot of denim in one picture.

  19. Tina Vinson says:

    what were they thinking…did they use their thinking caps…?

  20. Don says:

    10 points for the Indiana Jones hat…however minus 4 points for the armshelf pose on a fluffy, fringed pillow.

  21. DrStrangelove says:

    Out of ALL those hats and caps, not ONE single Thinking Cap! Pity.

  22. John R. says:

    In what alternate universe do people think a photo like this is a good idea?

    Less metaphysically … did some/all of them have to go out and buy denim clothes just for this photo?

    • ketchuph8r says:

      …or had they all been standing around at the ol’ family reunion when they suddenly realized that every adult at the party was in a denim shirt, which sparked a spirited and humorous discussion about being “on the same wavelength”, which, in turn, tied in beautifully with the already established debate over What to Wear in the Next Family Portrait?

      *snappin’ fingers* Problem solved!

    • ketchuph8r says:

      On that note, it’s really funny how they all picked out the SAME exact type of denim shirt…

      Note the pearlized snaps and identical breast pockets.


      One of the aunts ran out to the nearest cowboy shop and just bought the same shirt in every conceivable size. She even brought one for the photographer to lighten the mood.

  23. Richard says:

    family togetherness – so overrated!

  24. Moss Morris says:

    It’s like I always say, some people can pull off hats and others can’t. And some just need to find the right hat for them. This looks like a few just got some of their hats from the photographer.

  25. KJ says:

    The woman in the middle had the right idea. Wear a denim hat and sit in the middle of all the denim and you almost look like the normal, hatless person in the picture.

  26. Nicole says:

    Call me crazy, but I like this picture.

  27. ConchordsFan says:

    Whose kids are those?

  28. Jon says:

    When the photographer cried “EVERYONE, find a goofy hat” he had no idea what this family had in store.

    • ScoutC says:

      At our elementary school, we occasionally have “Crazy Hat Day.” Some of the parent class helpers get into it more than the kids. I think this family may have just all climbed aboard the school spirit bandwagon and forgot to climb off again before their photography appointment.

  29. Lauren says:

    Granny has triple denim!

  30. Janellionaire says:

    Uncle Bob, always the non-conformist, insisted on wearing a YELLOW hat despite rules stating that all hats should be denim, black, white, or straw.

  31. Megan says:

    Aunt Peggy is wearing a Blossom hat.
