What is the most stylish social response to being told "Nice hat!"?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Whenever I walk around with my fedora on, random strangers on the street are always telling me "Nice hat!" all the time. Often they will shout this at me from ~20 feet away.

Sometimes women will say it to me after they have already passed me.

I would like to know what the most stylish social response to being told "Nice hat!" is.

Normally I just say "thank you" but that seems very cliche, and even worse, it doesn't help me keep in touch with the women who have told me "Nice hat!"

Thank you for any insights you can provide regarding this question.

A quick "thank you" is the most appropriate response, considering that all of these compliments are probably not sincere. I have no idea how you dress, but considering how difficult it is to pull off a fedora without looking ridiculous, and that these women are saying this to you *after* passing you, I wouldn't be surprised if the comments were sarcastic.

"Nice tits!" If you think it might've been sarcastic "FUCK YOU"

give 'em a little tip of the hat along with the "thanks", or keep it silent and give a little wink along with the brim bend/tip

Just smile and/or say "thank you".

PS - Just read past your first line. Following your smile, say "Thanks. Nice tits."

Probably 75% of them are being sarcastic. Sounds like something i'd do

Put one of those fake dog poops you get at the clown store on top of your head. When they say "nice hat", smile then raise your hat to expose the "thing" sitting on top.

Stop, turn back a bit towards them (assuming they've passed) and say, "Finally, a woman with a good sense of style". That gives her a chance to stop and come back to you. If you want you can tack on "Where did you get your (whatever)". Again, that gives a chance for her to come to you. It won't work every time, but if she does, you're in.

If you're feeling a bit dick-ish, "I know."

Occasionally I've thrown a "That's why I bought it"

That's a good tip for women but what should I say to men who say "Nice hat!" to me, because I get quite a lot of that as well. I remember once reading a link posted on these forums about fedora etiquette and IIRC it said you must never tip your hat to another man.

A smile and a thank you are appropriate.

"WHAT? Don't you tell me I have a nice hat!"

"Thank you: it keeps the wimmenz eyes away from my massive cawk"

"My hat thanks you for your kind comments"

"My therapist told me I should try something new each day."
