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) 8)Posted 9 years agoMosesMember
You will look like a prat, especially on a Brompton or cargo bike.
Somehow, I don’t think this will worry you, so go ahead.
If you want warmth, I recommend a motor-cyclist’s balaclava which sill provide full head insulation and will fit under a helmet. There again, that won’t look suave and city-slicker-like, either.
