    To fedora or not to fedora...

    This question always plagues the interwebs, and there is no simple answer. If you are Matt Bomer or Frank Sinatra, the answer is yes. If it is poorly fitted, you wear it with the wrong clothes, or are currently in possession of a neck beard, the answer is no. Fedoras (especially the one you chose) have become more casual in our culture, and ought to be worn with a grain of salt. That said, I personally would recommend that fedora with a lighter material jacket such as this or even this (if you are feeling peacockish).* Also, if you happened to stop by the Kentucky Derby... well you can extrapolate from there.


    *please note that I am only linking to H&M in the "Classic Menswear" section because that fedora probably oughtn't be worn with anything Zegna or Brooks Brothers.
