Hat question. Not Baseball caps.

I was wondering Where I could find a hat like the one below. Also would a hat like it be something that would look good on everyday wear.

Is that a black felt fedora or trilby? Shouldn't be too hard to find at a decent hat store or online.

I love the look of a nice trilby or even a porkpie in a dark brown or grey, but I doubt I could pull-off that whole 50s retro thing. With modern streetwear you might end-up looking very emo or crustie.

I wear hats from time to time. I used to do it more when I had a regular job and wore business clothes every day. I do occasionally now, but only when I don't want to hit the emo-ironic look that Justin refers to. I've gotten hats numerous places, but my two favorites come from a specialty hat store in Georgetown.

Well I mostly wear Button Ups with DH jeans or cords and leather boots.

I just recently purchased one of the Engineered Garments railroad caps which is a more casual cap.

The Rag & Bone hat does look fairly similar, but if it were me and I was going to spend $150 on a hat, I'd get one from an actual hat maker that was made out of good wool felt rather than cotton.

Upon seeing SoCal2Nyc's recent purchase of the diamond hat by Victor Osbourne, I looked the brand up. I have to say almost all of his hats seem very wearable by young people; much more than almost all of his competition. SoCal said they retail for around $250.

Perhaps you would like the "Miles Fedora", the "Anthony", or the "Porkpie". You might also like the Diamond hat Socal ordered.

According to their site, the online store should be up in a week or two.
