Mike was in the front passenger seat. He was wearing a beanie and had the Limp Bizkit look of a rock-rap singer from the late 1990s.
(Stick with It; S. Young)

A beanie seems to look like this:

But I have always associated the Limp Bizkit look with this kind of hat:

Would you be so kind as to tell me whether the red hat in the latter picture can be called a beanie as well?

Thanks.

    But the sentence doesn't imply that it was the beanie that made Mike have "the Limp Bizkit look of a rock-rap singer from the late 1990s".

    I wonder what else could make you have "the Limp Bizkit look of a rock-rap singer from the late 1990s" if not that (red) hat? :)

    If I were to choose a rapper to compare to somebody wearing a beanie, I'd rather go with this guy:

    I agree with VicNicSor:

    I don't think it's saying that Limp Bizkit's hat was a beanie....more just that Mike had that "look." Maybe baggy clothes, a big open jacket or hoodie, track pants... that kind of "vibe" about him. Maybe the hairstyle/facial hair, too. All those could contribute.

    And, yeah, it looks like Limp Bizkit is wearing a backwards baseball cap, not a beanie.

    Why, the grey cap looks like a beanie to me... (or did you mean Che's beret:D?)
    The grey cap in #1 and the blue one in #3. I would call those "knit caps" or "watch caps." This is a beanie:



    But I know there's at least one thread on this somewhere around here....
