    +1 But for now I'm sporting a more economical Greek Fisherman/Captain's hat. [​IMG] Gets lots of comments.

    Definitely straw fedoras, but it seems everyone is going for this look and it annoys me when everyones following the trend, you just look like one of the sheep and not an individual mind - especially with uni students!

    Cant go wrong with a Gucci buckett hat.... I am into the fedora's but not as an everyday wear. Some of the trendy sneaker boutigues have some pretty interesting baseball hats (example Supreme, Dave Quality Meats, Etc.) I like those as an everyday wear.

    Yeah this definitely valid. It's getting a little ubiquitous in LA but I think as long as the rest of your outfit isn't as thrown together as tee + jeans + chucks and you can make the look more cohesive (think BoO runway), straw fedoras are still a great summer choice.

    Please tell me you don't mean the insanely played out, and insanely faked Gucci monogram bucket hat. The only thing those are good for is name dropping.

    fellas seriously... following the herd cmon... ever looked at a picture from the 20's or 30's or hell even watch american gangster (lots of cool hats by the way) every man on the planet had a hat.. and for the most part looked the better for it.


    The whole thing about hats in my opinion is anybody can buy a hat... not everybody can look good in one.. your style comes through in your selection of hat and how you carry yourself with it.. i dont care if every guy in my town buys a hat aint none of um gonna look as good or find one cooler than me...


    and by the looks of this thread you guys are already hunting in the wrong places to find a cool hat... Dj skillz that hat is god awful sorry i wouldnt be found anywhere near that thing... its a hell of a skill to hunt down a good hat or fedora or ivy cap or whatever... but ill tell you this alot of good ones can be found on the cheap side..


    and please do not buy designer hats from gucci or paul smith.,.. its the epitome of douche in my opinion... or banana republic or whatever other designer is tryin to put out... buy a hat from a hat designer not a fashion designer please/./

    and dave walker... i dunno i love ivy caps really love ivy caps and lookin into gettin some cotton ones myself for the summer.. but as far as plaid goes mmmm... i dont really think its a cool look. maybe with some solid color shorts and white v neck or whatever it might look aight,, but id say the fedora over a plaid ivy at this point anyway...

    I have a kangol or two, but last summer I saw a guy wearing a hat with a great striped self-band and asked him where it was from...

    It was from this place deep in Brooklyn, I haven't been yet but want to visit and may get something like this short-brim fedora:

    For 65 bucks it's not bad at all.

    Yup thats one of the ones I had in mind... What does it matter if it was faked or not? If you judged what you put on by that you would be walking around naked. Almost everything is bootlegged now from denim, to eyewear, to footwear, to bags.... I am starting to think that some of the air we breathe might even be knock off. To me I consider that style hat a classic Gucci piece that is timeless (if authentic).
