    I don't thinks that's technically a fedora. It's more Roger Rabbot.

    That is a great image. I think the hat looks great in this pic because the suit also has a loose fit, wide lapels, lower button stance, longer length, etc. Your outfit from earlier does not have the same drape as this suit and to me that makes your hat look disproportionately large on you. I think some of your other suits look much better with the hat.

    You are reading too far into it. The same hats were worn with slim suits and more often with higher button stances.

    I really like this outfit. Great color scheme, pattern mixing, and the drape on those pants is amazing. I also like the way you're wearing your scarf. Very jaunty.

    I'd love to see some pictures of that. Regardless of how/when it was worn, it doesn't change my feelings about the proportions of your fit. Historical context is not an excuse. But beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder. Carry on, cool cat.

    My view of beauty can be radically different than certain posters but at least it is a lively and vibrant exchange.

    I have to admit my initial reaction to your posts when I first came across your photos on this forum wasn't far off from the detractors in this thread. But over time you have become one of my favorite posters and I appreciate your participation.
