    Thanks, I had doubts about the PS too, but I felt the gold detail would make the outfit a little less sober.

    Thanks, I can imagine your surprise, but the tie is a navy grenadine with white stripes. Here's a closeup:

    Down below, there's tan moleskin trousers (need to be taken in through the legs) and burg LWB. Any feedback would be wonderful.

    I think the second one works well for you, the first one not so much.

    ...which is funny because I'd have almost no occasion ever to wear a boater IRL. In a few years, I can imagine wearing the homburg, though. :devil:

    What the heck, man. You don't get to wear a linen blazer in California? I might get crucifixion from this but I believe a linen DB blazer with discreetly patterned cotton trousers and a boater is a great summer look [​IMG]

    I have and wear a fedora.
    :fistbump: Oy, the limitations of internet modesty...
    Even if I had a linen blazer, the boater would feel like wearing a costume, and that's my limit. I would feel more comfortable in a panama or similar.

    Humm, do you really feel a boater is costume-ish? I was thinking about getting one for the incoming summer, but you might be right in that something like a panama would be less flashy.

    I am new to this...sorry if I sound ignorant...am I nutty, or old fashioned, or have no taste when I think the brown monks don't go well here? I mean, I look at his guy and say "wow--great taste, well thought out...but why not black shoes?" Is the whole rule about brown shoes not really matching up with a blue-ish/grey-ish suit out the door? Was that ever a rule? I am all about being comfortable, and confident...and this guy looks like he is better put together than me on 99 out of 100 days...but I am just thinking that the brown clashes and this would be just a touch *sharper* if the shoes were black. OK...have at me!

    Not if you wear it with a red and white coat and sing harmony.

    Otherwise, it needs to be worn with a wink and a nod.

    Boaters and bowlers (a.k.a. derbies) can be quite hard to wear (beyond the "costume" aspect). For myself, I find that neither suits the shape of my face, whereas the shape of your average fedora/trilby/Panama suits me very well. It is a very personal thing - I would not purchase any hat without trying it on first to see how it looks in relation to my very large skull and my roundish face.

    Mr. Butch's assay of a homburg was interesting, if inconclusive. From what little can be seen from the photo, it looked (at least to me) that the homburg might have been a touch small - it was sitting a little higher on his forehead than mine does on me. I do like its color - when I bought mine, the store had only black in my size, which is a bit stark, which also adds, I think to the "costume-y" aspect of wearing it. (Of course, "costume-y" never stopped me entirely from wearing something that I wanted to wear, possibly to my detriment, but there it is . . . :embar: .)

    Alrighty... Guess I'll try to decide if I should buy either a red and white coat or a panama hat. [​IMG]

    upr_crust, my face is just the opposite - rather thin, almost frighteningly so after weight loss; that's why I thought a square-ish hat like a boater could work. But yeah, wearing a hat nowadays is so costumey by itself that it may be just too much.
