I wear felt fedoras occasionally and prefer them only on overcast days/evgs spring/fall/winter Never in summer ever...they're just too hot for me. I am told that I look stunning wearing one. I lost one Biltmore in a bad storm recently but I do have 2 other Biltmores and one Borsalino which I have only worn once because it was $400 and I never want to sweat in it ever. It's still virginal. In summer, I have a very light wool open weave fedora that breathes very well but only wear it to church. My dad took my panama hat from me, saying I was too young for it...heh. I used to feel self-conscious about wearing the hats, but not anymore. They serve a purpose, and are fun, and they also give everyone you pass by something to look at. Women gravitate to a man of mystery. Hey..if you don't have a dog to walk, or a kid..then at least wear a fedora. It makes a good conversation piece. Just don't wear it cocked like a G-Man. That's my $0.02 worth.
