    Yes. In fact, my challenge now is discovering which hats I can't wear

    If you don't wear one to the next SF in SF, I'll have bmulford lay an aikido whuppun' on you. That, and with whatever LabelKing is wearing, no one will notice your hat.
    Perfect. It will give me an excuse.

    I rarely wear a fedora, but I wear other types of hats often.

    Since I travel a lot I usually buy crashable type hats like hunting, or summer straw-like hats.

    Have you tried a ten-gallon cowboy hat yet?

    I always wear a fedora to school. I've had a cheap black wool felt one for a few months, but now I've got a Christy's Foldaway (just in time too - the black hat has become horribly tapered and looks ridiculous now). People are more shocked when I don't wear a hat than when I do (they're probably expecting me to wear a monocle to the prom).

    Ask yourself this question:

    "Am I Phat Guido?"

    If the answer is no, don't bother trying.


    I'd add "am I barmis, Labelking, or Man of Kent" to that.

    Regrettably, some people just look stupid in fedoras. I am one of them.

    Only you and Junior Brown can pull that off

    I cant pull of a hat in any weather it seems to make me look a bit like a clown.

    I went without a hat the other day, and that felt odd.

    Hmm... Now that the April NPC is over, I should probably buy another summery hat...

    How can you not wear one of these and maintain the classy look?

    FTFY.

    Nah, all though I really like to look of 40's/50's suits, the fedora died with that age.

    I think wearing one you risk looking like a super dork/nerd who's trying to look like indiana jones.


    Kinda like the guys who wear the star wars stormtrooper costumes.

    So,
    No. Not in our current state of dress.

    Summer Down Under ...you want skin cancer and heat/sunstroke? ...walk around in midday for an hour or so without a wide brimmed hat...straw or felt...
