Now that I'm learning to love hats I start to appreciate that nice collection sitting behind you - you have the swag to pull them all off. Thinking of getting something like the one on the far left for an incoming trip to Naples in October. I bet that brim will come in handy when climbing the vesuvius...

 

Is it unconfortable in any way to wear a hat with such a wide brim?

 

By the way, nice slippers smile.gif

Thanks RDiaz. I have always been a wide brim guy so they have never been uncomfortable for me

     Bellow, a photograph to illustrate how to wear a hat without looking like a fool. A good challenge to all of you!



When does the poll go up, VE?

P.T. Williams, a man in his element.
Way to go, Paul!

You are the best by far.

They were all great guys
Hmm, perhaps I should have gone with one of my other options, but even then, I don't think I could pull ahead of KDiaz. and others.
This was fun.

Señor Diaz wins this one. Not only for the tastefully restrained elegance of his outfit, but also for the relaxed pose and the beautiful surroundings. Chapeau!

Several great attempts, gentlemen. I'm inspired to go hat shopping at some point. RDiaz's effort was just out of this world for me, though.

I agree, RDiaz killed it, but the idea that someone's outfit is judged better because of the surroundings, picture quality, pose, or whatever, has always confused me. I suppose there is no getting away from it completely, especially when a picture is so bad that you can't see what it is clearly, but is this a photography contest, or a CM contest?

The photo can't make up for a crappy outfit, but it can certainly accentuate a good one.

Hence the problem, as I see it.
