  • What fancy hat?
  • One very fancy hat that would definitely look out of place at a baseball game.

    Has one tried a fascinator?

    Don’t struggle with hats, dude… Start with a beginner’s hat – a beanie, maybe – and assert your mastery over said hat from day one. NEVER let your hat control you. Remember, you are a human and your hat is just a hat.

    When this first step is mastered, move on to more complex and frisky hats.

    Do not begin your hat phase with a Stetson or fedora. That way madness lies.

    I have a Fedora from here and very nice it is too.

    I also have an Australian Akubra and a flat cap…

    Lets narrow this down.

    Are you from the North?

    or are you from the South?

    Or maybe you’re not English at all, Scottish?

    Welsh?

    Possibly of Nordic origin?

    Dang, that’s a fancy Homburg… I can really see that working with my New Biggles ‘tache. 😀

    An oversize Rastafarian Tam, stuffed with socks and worn centrally on the top of your lovely bonce could be a good place to start..

    The Rastamouse look..

    What’s wrong with baseball caps for men in the summer? Nice big peaks keep sun from your eyes

    I saw a chap wearing one of these at Waterloo Station a couple of weeks ago. To his credit he carried it off pretty well.

    Taking the pith?

    That website is pretty dangerous, now looking at trilbies to go with my summer Tilley hat. And the freebie straw hat I got for drinking too much beer.

    I am a man who has always struggled with hats. I can’t abide baseball caps, so what other hats do people wear?
    I am aware that this is slightly ridiculous, but it’s a niggle I have.

    My girlfrinend has a pink cowboy hat that I could try, I guess.

    I just don’t feel comfortable with a baseball or trucker cap. I feel like I’m pretending to be something I’m not. What I am, is a Welshman, so I think I have my answer above, thanks to MW again.

    Whatever it is, just avoid those leather Australian waterproof thingies.

    I like a baseball cap as long as its not one of those silly oversized ones with the size label and price tags left on.. WTF all that about anyway?

    Yes but if we all listened to Wrecker….

    Keeps the sun off my head and neck, great thing. I’m also living in Oz so much more acceptable.

    Take the advice of the bard, Rabbie Burns, and “cock up your beaver”

    Some fancy plumage brightens any mans headgear.

    Avoid traditional ballcaps by sporting a military-style cap.

    Is the sensitive caring man look obligatory?

    Do go on…..

    An Australian hat in Australia is acceptable. Coupled with a barbour and hunter wellies in the home counties; definitive c***.

    Look closer. Notice, it’s Jonathan Trott pulling his ‘damn, I just got out’ face…

    EDIT: even if wrecker doesn’t agree (although I do agree about the wellies and Barbour)

    I too am often seen wearing a fedora, and it does indeed go with a good ‘tache.

    How’s yours going Camo?

    How’s yours going Camo?

    Not to shabby, Pinkster – I’m about 85% Selleck, but obviously nothing like your abundant ‘tache magnificence! Still, there’s some nice width going on now, which makes for good twirling!

    To my shame, I actually was looking at…

    …a snip 😯 on eBay for £45!

    I reckon it’s just the hat for my ‘tache – but can anyone seriously stroll about in a Homburg in 2013?

    Can’t beat a good twirl. 😉

    but can anyone seriously stroll about in a Homburg in 2013?

    If you have the confidence you can carry off anything on your head.

    I’m currently considering a beret.

    Not Frank Spencer stylee before anyone comments

    nothing specific wrecker but this place is not somewhere anybody should take fashion advice from 🙂

    Wearing appropriate clothing for the situation is fine, barbour and hunters in the UK is OK on the farm – that you own. Cleans up better when shooting and plucking pheasants (or what ever that sounds like)

    I think he’s looking down at a bug he just squished.

    Well, I am a self-confessed hat lover.

    In the past I’ve worn Berets with Gallic panache, military caps with ‘nam vet flair and my stetson gets a rare outing, always at a jaunty angle a la Douglas Fairbanks in The Gaucho… but I worry that a Homburg may be beyond even my hat-wearing confidence…

    Mind you, it worked for Winston:
