Fantastic look! Someday I will be able to pull off a fedora. Were you on the phone with Tank and Dozer to get pulled back out of the Matrix? Didn't know phone booths still existed down there! :lol:

Looking fabulous in tweed, as usual, Gerry.

BTW, in follow up to our earlier correspondence about wearing tweed and DB suits, I've taken the necessary steps to indulge myself in both this season. In about a month from now, my new jacket and suit should be ready, and I'm very excited about both.

Once again, thanks for the helpful stylistic advice on details that I may otherwise have overlooked.

Re the fedora, why the hesitation? Just try it, you're bound to love it. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I think you are right. Maybe I will try a Panama hat for my next island excursion. Wearing all linen today as it's going over 90 with an air quality warning. Ugh. Hat would have been useful!

Hats are something you have to wear with attitude. It helps to remember that they are NOT an affectation - they are a functional element of the elegant man's wardrobe, and they complete one's look.

 

Most of the hatless fits we admire would have been considered woefully incomplete, back in the golden era of menswear.

 

Select your hat carefully, wear it with pride, and give no thought to those who might disparage your choices.

Sage advice. Was just playing on NY Hat Co website. Had looked at Optimo from Chicago but they are a bit pricey.

Tell that to the Friday Challenge thread! The hat debate is heating up in there

That was very sage advice indeed and with which I (as a rare hat wearer) fully agree.

I always say for those nervous about taking a plunge in the hat pool, get a Panama fedora or if you're on a more modest budget, a sisal type straw hat, any of which will be functional in hot weather and as such will give you a more robust reason to wear it and thus bolster your confidence. Once you get through the day and survive hopefully without any derisive remarks, you'll be all the more confident the second time.

Also, as me and Crusty among others have said on his forum, it's OK to browse online hat shops but very difficult to buy based on online photos. Much better if you can get to a bricks and mortar hat shop where you can try hats on for size, fit and look, and be all the more confident in your purchase.

Along with the obvious old time shops in New York and Chicago I've seen Goorin Brothers shops popping up in several cities with hats at a reasonable price and they encourage customers to try as many as they like. Good luck.

The purple jacket and hat are smashing. I can tell you and your husband have great fun. Congratulations on your new digs.

I know the forum as a whole is not a fan of grey jackets, but, I really love this jacket and I like how it looks with off white cotton. It is a scorcher in MI today, enjoy the beginning of your weeks gentlemen! Lighting throws off the colors a bit, apologies.

Corneliani, BB, Polo, Incotex, Walnut AE strands on the bottom.

Smashing jacket! Gray s/c's are perfect for getting away with a subtle FU pattern.

Red and blue. Me and you. Forever not true.

What do you do with your hat when you are indoors?

I used to wear a hat every day.  There used to be hat check rooms, hat racks, places under chairs in restaurants to put hats, and porters on trains used to have hat bags to put hats into while on the train.  Now, it seems like all the places that hats used to go when men went indoors are gone.

Things are so bad now that you see men wearing hats indoors, and (worst of all) wearing hats while talking to ladies.
