Can you pull off a hat (i.e fedora) ever?? - Page 4

post #46 of 116
I wear a hat in cold or drizzly weather - like today. I've lost a lot of hair, so the utility of a hat is strong with me.

I wear a homburg now and then. People have told me it looks good, and I like it, so as far as I'm concerned that's good enough for me. However, I suppose I should submit to the judges here....

I would certainly wear a hat if it suited me, but of the several I have tried on, I feel they don't suit my face size and shape.

I would love to wear hats, but find they don't suit me. Also:

I think it is all about the attitude of the wearer, you have to show confidence in what you wear. I have trouble with hats, once I take them off my hair is all messed up.

I wear hats for a purpose -- typically sun or cold. I have no use for a purely decorative hat, though a purposeful hat need not be unstylish.

To say "I tried a hat and they don't look good on me" is like saying "I tried suit and they don't look good on me." Hats may be more finicky in appearance since they are on top of your head and frame the face, but I would find it hard to believe that a person simply doesn't look good in any hat. Like shoes, suit, tie, etc. would it not be a matter of finding the right hat? Color, style, fit, texture, brim, curl, crown, bash, ribbon, finish, etc. all come into play.

This isn't to imply that one has to wear a hat or even has to like or want one. But like a suit, chances are good there is one, or likely several out there that look good on you.

I tend to think fedoras are less conspicuous in a cold drizzle, say, than on a balmy spring day. For guys under 50 or so, they need the right setting, and they need a certain attire, either very dressy or a little eccentric. (My stuff leans toward the latter category.) The hat and T-shirt combo so popular with fat guys ought to be eradicated.

In summer, I wear a panama, which my girlfriend considers equally crazy. But I think she finds it more appealing than the beat-up fedora.

I approve of all of this. Try an akubra stylemaster for a slightly more casual hat.

I used to wear a fedora before I moved to the south. In the summer it's a Panama hat or a skimmer. Borsalino makes a nice wool cap for those casual cool rainy days.
