Is there a rule against wearing a hat without also wearing a jacket?

I don't know, but there ought to be. It looks stupid.

I think a panama can work with shirt-sleeves in summer, but generally it doesn't work.

I wouldn't say a rule as much as it just looks incomplete.

No, there isn't. However, I recommend a long sleeved shirt with a collar if you plan on going jacket less in the fall or winter. You can get away with a lot more in the summer with a panama or a cuenca.

No. Fedora + sweater or panama + shirtsleeves is fine.

Check out the Fedora Lounge (thefedoralounge.com) for the most knowledgeable hat aficionado's.

It works if you like it!

It reminds me of those scrawny unfortunate looking geeks with bad complexions who wear cheap wool felt fedoras with poly-blend short-sleeved dress shirts.

I hope not, I usually wear a panama hat on my walk to work in the summer while carrying instead of wearing my jacket.

If it is warm enough for just a shirt and no sweater or jacket why would you wear a hat ?

Yes, unless your name is Slash, then you can get away with both
