Can you pull off a hat (i.e fedora) ever?? - Page 7

post #91 of 116
I'd like to think I can. But my only fedora at the moment is a grey one with a bound brim, so it's kind of too formal for anything less than a suit.

But one of these days, I'm gonna get a brown one. Then it's on.

The only cowboy hats that I think look good are the Spanish style ones - Lee Van Cleef, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Clint in 'Hang Em High', Dean Martin in 'Bandolero' ... these wide brimmed monstrosities that people like Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks wear are absolutely hideous.

Amen.

I lived in Arizona 20 yrs and cannot stand those wide brimmed Garth Brooks hats.

Wear hats all the time and get compliments from strangers. Sometimes the hat pulls the outfit together.

When you look like this in a hat, you can wear a hat.

^Roger Sterling is the man.

I almost always wear a hat when heading out for the evening.usually a variety of fedora,straw for this intense Vegas summer heat, I'll switch to wool in the F/W.Last year,my felt bowler was a huge hit,can't wait for the weather to cool off.However,now that I've found this little gem, I may be able to pull of the bowler almost year round: http://www.villagehatshop.com/jaxon-...ts-bowler.html

it's all in the outfit. hats can put looks together, or they can completely tear them apart. personally i can't really wear hats except for one midnight velvet vintage stetson fedora i have, and even then it's in my closet 99.5% of the time.

I have a thoroughly beat up grey fedora - Dobbs brand, I think. It works for a casual "depression era" look, and usually brings compliments.


Summer hats are trickier, so I'm trying to get used to it.

Wish i could pull off a hat. But too often wearing a fedora screams trying too hard. Difficult to toe the line.

It's really not hard to pull one off, as long as you have the confidence to do so. I'm only 29 and look like I'm 21, but I got a couple for Father's Day and have had nothing but compliments (especially from the lady folk). Just as with suits or anything else you put on, you have to wear the hat, not let the hat wear you. If you're nervous about it...it'll show.

^I'd say that first one looks a little too Smokey Bear.

As someone with me medium length hair ( think jim morrison) i don't even know how i would go about wearing one with out looking odd.

I don't think I could pull off a felt hat, but I wear a panama hat in the summer and constantly get compliments on it.

Skin cancer's on the rise; what other accessory prevents signs of aging and could save your life? Time for a revival and I don't mean those damn stingy brims.
Amen. Unless you have a very small face a stingy brim looks pretty naff IMO. 2 5/8" is about as small as I go.
