Since I thought all hot girls have been practicing total depilation for the past 15 years or thereabouts, I believed using references to small furry animals--beaver, pussy, monkey--to denote that portion of the female anatomy was quite out of date!

I have no direct experience but have heard that where I live at present the ladies actually rather "add more to it"...
To display fertility and attractiveness, or something like that.
If I say 'horses for courses' to that, don't take it the wrong way.
(so much pun, wow...)

 Was in NYC a few weeks ago and visited JJ Hat Center. They really know their stuff. Picked up a Panama for next summer as I can only assume it will be as sweltering and awful as the last one. Maybe climate change will spur hat sales? Also grabbed a fedora for cold weather. )I put one hat inside the other and creased the headband on the Fedora. Will have to steam it out)

Just discovered this thread and I have a question.

 

What would the black cap toe oxford of the hat world be?

 

I mean to say the quintessential dress hat which transcends time and will always be the understated and classy option.

 

Thanks in advance.

A bound edge fedora with 5 to 5.5 inch crown unbashed and 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 inch brim with bound edge. Wider ribbon or 1.5 to 1.75 inches. If you have larger round face the brim width , crown, and ribbon should be the larger size.
Medium grey with similar colored edge and ribbon is a good choice but black ribbon and same color edge binding is also a very nice look.

You may have some other colors you prefer based on your prevalent wardrobe color.

Narrow brim (stingy brim) hats are faddish and go out of style cyclically.

​This is what I like. Not just your standard answer but a detailed (to the half inch) response - thank you.

 

I would be edging towards black.

 

Is black acceptable for day wear with say a grey suit? I ask this because black grey is my most common wardrobe colour and I would be conscious that too much of a good thing (grey) would be too much.

I think a dark grey with black ribbon might be a better wider ranging choice. I have a black fedora similarly shaped to the one in photo and I find that it looks to me to be too much of a hat to wear to a funeral. (I may have a bias against black...)Not the best photos, not always ready when the timer takes photo but they show the black and charcoal grey hats

As a long-time hat wearer, I will have to side with suitedcboy on this one - grey is a much more universal color for a fedora than is black, for the reasons that the gentleman listed. For myself, I have only one black hat, a Homburg, and I find it too severe for all but the most formal of occasions. As shown in the photo examples, wearing a grey hat with a grey suit is not overkill.

I might as well throw in my two cents. I have one black hat, from Bates. I virtually never wear it. Black is just not a versatile color. Grey is a much, much better choice.

Pretty unanimous decision then guys.

 

Looks like dark grey with a black ribbon would be the most acceptable whilst still offering the look I am after.

Dear Hat Aficionados,

 

Im a looking into buying my first hat, in specific a Fedora.

 

Which brands in general would you recommend that offers a good quality? 

 

My budget is limited to  ~300€.

 

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure what brands are available for you, where you are somewhere in the EU. My strongest recommendation would be that you buy a hat from a brick-and-mortar hat store, rather than from a department store or on-line, as department store help rarely know anything about men's hats, and buying something as personal as a hat online is a very chancy thing. Hats rank with eyeglasses in terms of their "site-specificity" - one can rarely tell what one hat will look like on one's head merely by seeing it on a computer screen.

Some examples:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality





Preferably, I'd like something in grey.  Something around $100, give or take, would be ideal.

I'm also posting a picture of myself, to gather a consensus of whether I can actually pull it off.  If not, what kind of hat do my features best lend themselves to?

It's a Borsalino!!!! I just found this pic on imdb and cropped it a little closer up!
