Is a deerstalker hat ever appropriate outside of deerstalking?
An outfitters near my office is selling rather fetching ones.
Now, when riding my Brompton or cargo bike I tend to wear either a broad-brimmed Tilley hat, a Gore-Tex winter cap or a silly white beany. It occurs to me that a deerstalker would keep the ears warm and stay secure when tied flaps-down, provide a peak and neck coverage and might even fit reasonably well under a helmet (again, flaps down).
What is the collective view of such headwear?
(and don't start on me about helmets. I am heavily insured, have private medical insurance, have no dependants, pay more tax than many of you and am capable of managing risk. This is a style discussion only)
