"Its also nice to see a windsor knot in the sea of four in hands! " Amen!
Yoked suits are not cool. They were gimmicky a hundred years ago and never really saw any wide use other than TV and movies. Businessmen in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, etc. wear normal cut suits. Often tailored suits are worn with western boots and western hats by those so inclined. I have seen some very nice suits with conservative (not pointed toe) boots that look every bit as good as any bespoke English shoes and topped by a nicely shaped fine beaver (not any part...
I love the colors. I think it looks great on you. Great dents, is it a diamond bash on crown top? I am planning to commission one of similar color but a but larger proportions. Taller crown with no taper and 2 1/2 or 2 5/8 brim width. Seeing yours has hastened me to act.
Hat jacks are intended only to enlarge the hat the amount that drying sweat in the leather band would contract it, i.e, keep it sized to as new sizing.You can stretch the hat with one a small amount but stretching fordoras, homburgs, and other lighter felt dress hats will usually result in brim distortion that can affect the appearance of that hat.How much too small would your estimate that it is?
I love Western hats. Thanks for posting. Stetson looks good on you and love all the scenery.
There is a third choice you do not list: add two piece suits in staple colors. Navy, dark gray, and a medium gray would be great. 3 piece suits are often a bit out of place and may make an expensive impression to potential clients. The variety you will find out there and pricing makes them less attractive to buy and wear without vest.
Which did you wear to interview?
Homburgs are historically dressy hats. You can wear them as you like and as a more casual hat but I personally would not. I think a wider brim (2 1/2 to 2 3/4 inch) with bound edge fedora is a hat that can go dressy but also goes casual very well. Here is a black recent Stetson. Black would not be my first choice. Gray is far more versatile.
Which one makes you happy and which one makes you sad? The association can't be assumed.
Tibor's hat looks great to me. I like that crown crease and favor wider brimmed fedoras. There are no rules to this and one's perspective determines your impression. I wear fedoras and also wear western hats almost daily. My perspective is hat brims should be large and shield the sun well. Wider brim style looks best to most with a larger crown. This is the proportion part. Crown with little or no taper is a personal preference but I fall into the group that thinks a face...
