Is a hat that doesn't even cover your ears really a cold weather hat? Never had one, kinda like the look, but not sure how this beats a Fedora on a day that is truly cold.

To handle the brutal cold they often have ear flaps (felt, I recall) that fold down.

BTW, the new Prada collection features some fantastic Astrakhan-lapelled overcoats and the like. Man, I want...!
I saw a very nice looking Astrakhan hat at the Prada shop last month. Unfortunately, it wasn't in my size, and the folks weren't able to get one for me.

You also need to have a very particular personal style to pull of fur hats of any style. If that's you in your avatar, I'm not sure I would recommend a fur hat for you.


Word!

The Persian Lamb Ambassador have ear flaps one can fold down...if one does that I believe onw would look really ridiculus though.

- Persian Lamb...well, its more iconic..think: Malcolm X, Thelonious Monk, Vince Lombardi, Hakeem (Eddie Murphy - Coming to America)...also, I personally agree with Gdot in saying that the mink seems a little feminine for a guy. I have a persian lamb ambassador hat that I wear formally and casually (urban chic)  ...But hey, u do what YOU want!...haha

Or they just have different standards for sheep and humans. :) Which most of us actually do, so let's not be hypocritical.
