When wearing a Panama I have the ghastly habit of crumpling it up and tossing it into a corner. Other than that I mostly wear flat-caps in the winter and do the same with them. Fedoras, and other shaped hats, are simply too inconvenient to wear today, as you mention.

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.

 

You're quite right. It's a pleasure to walk into a place and find that there is a coat (and hat) check facility. But that is rarer than hen's teeth, it's true.

Crumpling it up? Instant destruction, surely?

 

I have developed a few ways of dealing with my hat when indoors, especially at a restaurant. As a last resort, I'll place it crown-down under my seat, where it is reasonably safe. Quite often I'll ask for an extra napkin which I will place on the floor under the hat if the floor looks especially unsavory.

 

For me, wearing a hat is not a question of convenience or inconvenience. It is a necessity. Preventing skin cancer (for which I have already had one surgery with no desire to have more) trumps all other considerations. That I make a virtue of necessity is neither here nor there.

Hey, man, you brought it up! :D 

 

To your post, though, a flat cap is a lot more convenient to carry around than a stiff hat, certainly. And I bought a nice linen cap while I was in London a few weeks ago. But a cap does not offer protect to my temples or my ears. I think many years of wearing baseball caps out in the sun has allowed considerable damage to those areas, unfortunately. So I hardly ever wear caps any more. If I do wear a cap, I also dip my head in a big vat of sunblock lotion beforehand. ;)

That part of town is Murray Hill - an area due east of Fifth Avenue, and approximately due south of Grand Central Station.

Longest day of the year and hottest day (over 100F) so far this year.  The giant Agaves behind me (where the sidewalk ends) are happy today but some of the people don't seem as happy.  (The Agaves are also probably happy people here don't make Tequila out of them so they can grow to be really big.)

Brooks Brothers blue blazer, blue PPBD shirt, and BB#1 stripe tie, Squarextraordinaire pocket square, Banana Republic grey glen plaid linen-cotton blend trousers, and Allen-Edmonds for Brooks Brothers black Strands.

Since you're at the Huntington Library, walk around in the cactus garden and see how happy all the cacti are.
