    Summer’s just about done, and it’s not quite chilly enough to put the heat on. Since the you know what shut the barbers for a long while, I’ve got in the habit of just shaving my head every few days rather than the monthly no1 all over, I’m now cold. What do you wear about the house? I have a range of “outside” hats, but feel a bit odd wearing one inside. Is it just me?

    Blimey how cold is your house? I clip mine with just the blade once a week and I’ve never felt the need for anything on inside.

    ‘Number zero’ all over once a week for the last 15 years or so. I might occasionally slip on a beanie outdoors in the winter or baseball cap on a hot summers day, but I’ve never once felt the need to wear a hat indoors. Where do you live, ice station Zebra?!

    I number one mine every couple of days and I’ve never felt the need for a hat indoors, but now you come to mention it I reckon I might get a fez and wander around the house doing random Tommy Cooper impressions

    Beanie when it’s cold. Definitely not at the moment though!

    I usually wear a baseball cap, but not for warmth just habit.

    the monthly no1 all over

    Monthly?? Day 1 > 30…

    If your cold. Let it grow
    I do sometimes. It looks a right ****t.
    Professor bun head!
    If fact my shavers had it. Any cordless bonce trimmer advice.
    It’s like that strong guy with the long hair. But the other way around. The more shaved the stronger We get. And with the right vest. Anything is possible.

    Hoodie > hood up.

    Job done.

    Also agree it’s not needed yet!

    Just poked the thermostat and it suggests it’s 19.5C in this room now, but we’ve been in the habit of keeping a through draught until dark and the daddy long legs all want to come in when the light goes on. Might give the Pantani bandana a go.

    Sometimes it gets a bit cold in the shop.
    I’m not happy wearing a hat indoors but will wear a peaked woolly hat if needed.
    I think a beret would be the right thing to wear….not that I would.

    Remington RX5.

    Dry, wet, in the shower – all good.

    Monthly? I think I look like Iain Duncan Smith if I leave it a week 😳

    A month would be the full Will Gompertz

    Well I’ve had a rummage in the cycling kit drawer, and I’m now sporting a thin cotton polka dot KOM cap from the publicity caravan of some long past Tour de France stage. Must up my beanie and beret game.

    +1 on the Remington RX5.

    Just shave it properly with a razor. Feels nicer once you get used to it too. Can’t say I’ve ever noticed the cold inside but I’ve been bald since about eighteen so probably well acclimatised

    How about a beret?

    Eh? Outside of boulderers down the climbing wall who wears a hat inside?

    If I’m in by myself I’d rather wear a few extra clothes than turn up the heating.
    I prefer Tupac style to Pantani fashion.

    The hipster fashion around town at the moment seems to be a kind of shallow beanie (say half the normal depth) that sits just on the top of the head. Just looking at them makes me nervous that it’s going to fall off.

    If it’s a bit cool out, and I’ve got windows open a bit, or I’m in and out of the house I wear a cotton jersey double-layered beany, slightly stretchy and nice and snug, perfect for when there isn’t that much hair as there used to be. Also ideal for preventing embarrassing sunburn!

    I’m presently strutting around the house in my blingy men’s fashion turban and Hugh Hefner style smoking jacket

    Remington RX5 down to the wood in one go. Still wet shave me face, old habits and all that

    Remington RX5 here every 2-4 days and if I want a really smooth feeling head, I follow it up with my Babyliss Foil shaver that I use for fades at work.

    If the price of gas goes up we will all be wearing beanies at home 😉

    Wet shave with a double edged safety razor all over for me 2 or 4 times a week give or take. A cap or beanie if it starts to dip cold outside, particularly in the mornings, but generally nothing around the house or when the temps are double figures.

    Want a turban now! I use either an omnishaver, headblade or sometimes a safety razor if I’m feeling brave stupid

    Having gone from a head of long, luscious locks to a thinning collection of grey, pube like stragglers in 18 months, this thread is of interest to me.

    I burned the top of my head in the Lakes last week.
    First time.

    Ah well, all part of life’s rich wotsit, I suppose…..🙃

    I am old enough to have been brought up to regard wearing a hat indoors was a bad thing, so I never do, and if I’m out in the winter with a hat on outdoors I’ll always take it off going into a shop or pub etc. let alone someone else’s house. Strange how conditioning acquired in the mid 1960’s persists into my 6th decade even though I have very little hair left.

    I got a bollocking for wearing a beanie in Canterbury Cathedral as a tourist. It was winter, temperature was less than 5C.

    Premier Icon midlifecrashes

    Well I had a miserable night shivering and have woken up with an obvious headcold. I guess I should have been looking at my own temperature, not the central heating thermostat. Thank you for all your kind words though.

    Mostly flat cap but beanie when I sleep.

    A jumper. Head looks after itself. It has to be icy cold indoors/heating must be broken for me to break out the emergency bathrobe with hood.

    Hate hats indoors.

    I might occasionally slip on a beanie outdoors in the winter

    Occasionally? I don’t leave the house without a beanie on from about Oct – May. The date I start wearing it varies, but once it is on, it stays on until spring.

    This is the sort I wear, not too thick so ideal for cool windy days like it was today for a while.

    I could wear my six-panel duckbill cap, but with virtually no hair, as soon as it gets a bit windy the damn things try to take flight!
