I have a couple of very nice fur hats - one is a "trooper" style hat in rabbit, with ear flaps and the metal decorations removed. one is a persian lambswool "ambassador" style. I wear them when I am outside of the US, but I haven't worn them here yet. I don't wear rimmed hats because I haven't found one that I liked on me very much. Now I am considering buying a borsalino "newsboy" style cap. the question is - can I get by wearing a fur hat in the US, or is that just going a little overboard? should I just get the cap and leave the hats for Russia and Eastern Europe.
