Will of A Suitable Wardrobe has a lot of interesting things to say about hats. Here is just one of his columns:
Do you guys think you can id what Andrew Bird is wearing in this video?
I can't tell if it's a distressed fedora or maybe a tyrolean hat.
Thanks a lot!
Hello Hat thread! I've only worn "caps" in the past but want to step up to a Homburg. I guess as a "Rookie" in this world I wanted to see what you folks thought of this Hat as my first? It's a Biltmore Oxford Eleganza from a local hat place in Chicago. I don't know if thats a decent brand for a starter or if thats like the Cole Haan of hats but I like the way it looks.
The link for that hat I mentioned is from Hats-Plus I hear ya about Fedoras, but I carry a negative stigma with them due to their popularity and they generally don't look well on me at all, none that I've seen anyway. I saw Graham Thompson on a local TV station and his store and everything in it look amazing but out of my range at the current time. I appreciate the tip on a porkpie..

My mother just mailed me that she found me a hat from my late grandfathers collection. I have never worn a hat so (although I don't know yet if it will fit me) I was wondering the following:
Would be much obliged for any info on the hat.
Is this something I can do myself (any vids/info on the net maybe) or should I visit a specialised hatter of some sort?
