that reminds me-- you have an Adventurebilt fedora, no? I totally missed any photos of you in that hat, if you don't mind reposting.

Perhaps I should simply wear NFL team sock caps.
I have no ill will toward you, and I certainly admire your taste in clothes. You have a tendency on the forum to be rude and dismissive. If you want to be that way don't be surprised if someone objects.
Again, if someone doesn't like hats or my hats on me, that's fine. They can feel free to say so, and I'm not really concerned with converting anyone (not that I wouldn't like to see it). But I have my own views on it, and plan to follow those views.
I've more than had my say, and will stop derailing the thread.
Actually, I have thought that you and Tibor are two of the forum members who carry their fedoras really well. I have started looking for one for myself. Winters here are brutal and a fedora looks like the only sensible option for covering your head if one is wearing a suit.
Point on the shoes, yes they're fresh out the box, but there is too much snow and salt on the pavements to have broken them in yet, I don't know if people regulary point out brands etc, or wait until asked, but they are pair of Ducker and Son's Oxfords, probably the nicest pair of shoes I've ever owned, sorry if its a sin to post them in such a condition, also I have honestly never posted on this site before, not really sure how I can prove I'm not the person you think I might be, I'll take some proper full length shots in the future, unless this other chap is over 6 feet and dresses from big and tall shops, I don't really now how I can go about proving I'm not them...heres a blog that I compile, maybe that'll help with this case of mistaken identity? www.colorful-language.tumblr.com
