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.

Astrakhan looks amazing, despite the politburo associations. It never really gets cold enough to justify the hat here, but if I lived somewhere where it does, I'd be very tempted.
BTW, the new Prada collection features some fantastic Astrakhan-lapelled overcoats and the like. Man, I want...!
Astrakhan looks great, but not as a hat like this. For reference, LabelKing has a coat with astrakhan lapels. That's freaking awesome. 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.
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.
