I value my own pride and worth, therefore, top myself with good style, and good style means the right clothes--they do make the man. Cool

And there's not many things around like that any longer. Maybe that's why I like smoking a pipe...other than it's just a damn good thing to do. It's something that's almost totally exclusive to being a guy. And I think since it's really pretty rare, like the fedora, it's not something that you do for anyone else...and that aspect is obvious to everyone around you.
Well put, Blackhorse! cheers

If you want to find some like minded "fedora guys" give this Forum a look over. I've been a member for a couple years now and there are some folks with fantastic hats over there. : http://www.thefedoralounge.com/forum.php . Some of 'em even smoke a pipe Razz

By golly, GQ couldn't have done better on a hat question. And a special tip o' the hat to the BoBs who helpfully rustled out their own headwear and cams to illustrate. Well played, gentlemen.

I should have included in my list my L.L. Bean fisherman's hat (no linger offered) which looks fedora-ish, has to be 20+ years old, has just enough brim to ward off the sun, has held its shape admirably and has often done stylish double duty on rainy days.

I should also have added that a modern hat buyer should avoid offerings with a plastic head band, which is uncomfortable and often leaves its impression on the forehead for quite some time after the hat has been removed.

P.S. I once observed that Moby Dick was the only Great American Novel candidate in which the pipe played a significant part. Book worms among us may recall how Stub, one of the mates aboard the Pequod, carried his day's supply of pipes -- safely tucked in his hat band. Of course, Stubb favored clays which wre common in those days.

Not at all Mr. K. I was eye rolling at the 'clothes make the man' mantra. I think that a guy makes whatever he wears look right by his attitude, carriage, etc. - regardless of what all the fashion forward that my wife watches on TV would have one believe. Not that you're saying that. There's nothing at all wrong with lookin' sharp, but if a guy thinks that wearing sharp clothes will make him anything more than he already is...well, I just think that's deluded. The truth will out. But I also think that a guy canbe 'enhanced'.

Scum sucking freak with sleazy outfit = scum sucking freak.

Scum sucking freak dressed to the nines = scum sucking freak.

Great guy in tattered faded jeans and a Red Sox t shirt = great guy.

Great guy in tattered faded jeans, a Red Sox t shirt and a Yankees ball cap = great guy that needs therapy.

Great guy in cool duds, wearing a snappy fedora and smoking a pipe = great guy women want and fish fear.

It is what it is. Cool

There is no such thing as a great guy in a Red Sox t-shirt.

Okay, need help from you guys again. I can't find a freakin R/N number for this product, but I want to find where to buy it. I bought a hat, very similar to this one...




It's not quite the same, but the closest I can find. The brand name on the label is "Kenny K." but heck if the interwebs are giving me anything useful. I'm finding some listings with the brand "Eurosport" but that seems to be a little bit of a red herring.

The reason I like this hat, is because it fits my bulbous head. Smile I'm so frustrated, I'm going to call the hat store in Charleston, to see if they can send me the plaid version. It's unlike any hat I've seen. The plain version has plaid patches instead of a symmetric pattern. Very, very cool looking hat, at least to me. Smile

Any help would be helpful.

Just be warned - if you are in the south, any hat built this way is going to be hot, hot, hot. I would look for a straw or paper fedora for this season. My favs are a stingy brim like above.

I have three styles for summer, and others for rainy season plus a couple for more formal occasions. Since I shave my head completely bald, and my very light completion (white!), I almost always have some sort of hat.

I would also recommend always going somewhere you can try on the hat before purchasing. The sizing is never as it seems, and even with a measured hat, you'll want the dealer to steam and shape it for you.

Today's hat

Fuzz nailed it. Being uncomfortable in the wrong hat sucks.

This is would be a heat-comfy little number:

Fuzz, you are a handsome bastard in that straw. I like it much. I am partial to Irish caps (or whatever they are officially called). But I do own one straw that I purchase from a Cuban clothier. I like it very much and enjoy a cold pint and a cigar on the front porch wearing it when I get the chance.

Cheers!

Fuzz and Kyle, thanks. I bought a nice, light and airy linen hat yesterday that I think will work for these hot days. I have often walk across the campus and I need something stylish to wear as I traverse under our hot sun. Smile I looked at a nice straw hat as well, but couldn't afford both. Sad

As long as we seek to be throwing pictures out right and left, I might as well join the fray.

This is a pic of my Fawcett Beaver Custom.

Gentlemen, this is a fabulous thread! I am greatly enjoying the style and class you are showing with your hat choices. When I have returned home I will take some more respectable photos with my collection of caps, and hopefully I will have found a few more to add to the collection.

Cheers!
