    Trilby, of course.

    Or a cowboy hat (Stetson) if there were any cowboys around, natch. I like beanies. And I reckon hats are cool and we should wear them more.

    A flat cap usually.

    Good album.
    Sorry, real hats, usual one is one like this:

    Keeps the sun off the thin bit, rain off my head and glasses, and shades my eyes, and goes in a pocket. Cost me six quid from a stall at the local folk festival, and I’ll be getting another this year in black, and a grey check one, ‘cos they’re really comfy, look ok, and cheap.
    Did I say cheap?
    I sometimes wear a Tilley, either a Canadian Winter, or Waxed cotton.
    Oh, and a nice thick, warm OBEY beanie, plus I got a proper Russian Ushanka for real cold weather.
    When we get it. I hate cold ears.

    Today I’ve been wearing two different hats:

    Exhibit A:

    For togging around in the MX5 with the top down before the heater kicks in.

    Exhibit B:

    For painting ceilings and high walls, bought years ago for a fancy dress do.

    Tweed flat cap and felt version might be more usual, though. I did go into a hat shop last year and try loads, but didn’t really think I suited anything more flambouyant. I do have loads of outdoorsy hats for more when the occasion arises.

    Yes definitely. But hats (other than wooly ones) don’t seem to suit me.

    Depends on the occasion as to what hat I might choose.

    Ordinary day wear would be my brown chenile Kangol or a flat cap.

    But I may go for a bit of a straw number in summer.

    I only wear hats for riding. Can’t stand wearing hats, watches, or jewellery of any description for that matter.

    Each to their own though πŸ™‚

    Or I will switch with my other flat cap if the above is wet.

    You’ve just described elephant shit.

    I have a hat just like that. Though I may have to burn it now that I’ve discovered Chewkw has one. (-:

    You know, this is the sort of topic that would work in some form of men’s lifestyle magazine, if only such a thing existed…

    This is my winter hat. Worn pretty much non stop in the colder months. Gonna start wearing caps again in the spring and summer as I’m bald and skin cancer is an issue.

    There must be 60 to 80 different types of hats out there, so what would you wear if you were to wear one ?

    I thought I have been trendy wearing my flat cap with my Clarks shoes πŸ˜†

    My colleague described my other flat cap as wearing turtle shell on my head. 😑

    Ahhh … small world I see … he said the same thing before. Typical banter would be me transforming myself into Mutant Ninja Turtle. 😯 London humour or what? That’s the most boring cartoon ever. He should watch more of the Manga animation and not those lame stuff. πŸ™„

    My reply is always “What’s up fat boy? I will wear my stormtrooper’s (Castro hat) hat next time.” (he is in his mid 50s and a J*w 😈 Then people overheard it with disgust πŸ˜† and then we carry on as usual back to boring bureaucratic work). When he has difficulty walking fast I would suggest to him lying on the floor while I use my feet to barrel roll him to the destination. πŸ˜† There is no PC between us as I can accept whatever label everyone has on me. All labels welcome but in return I should have my fun too.

    Always feel a bit of a **** wearing hats, except when it’s really cold.
    Then out comes my rabbit fur ushanka, like this :

    I know I still look a ****, but at least I’m a warm ****.

    EDIT- What, you can’t even say ****???

    Interesting, only time I wear a hat is when skiing and its usually just a beanie.
    But I think for me it would be a beret πŸ™‚

    I’ve never really been a hat person but I’ve taken to wearing a cap under my helmet when riding. That led to buying a wool cap from some nice folks in Oregon, Randi Jo Fabrications.

    Is “covering your head” not specific enough?
