- What killed off the hat?
Another confirmed hat wearer here! I started finding my head got cold in the winter in my early 20s, and since then have had a selection of hats that make me look like a prat.
Currently favouring a Harris Tweed flat cap that I do think make me look dapper. As I’m now over 40 I think that I can carry it off.
Skull cap under the helmet for riding in cold weather, woollen breton hat (which my wife hates) for working outside / playing football etc in the winter.
I caught the end of the Terry Pratchett interview too last night, what a fantastic hat. Top fellow too, a real bugger about the AltzeimersPosted 4 years ago
Um, maccruiskeen, my Pendleton shirt, is a regular blue-grey check, wool shirt, like my check flannel shirts.
Not unlike this one:
I don’t do bright, apart from the occasional red fleece, most of what I wear is subdued or camo.Posted 4 years ago
The Beach Boys were originally called the Pendletones, because surfers wore Pendleton wool shirts après-surf, in the cool evenings. Small pop-culture factoid, there. 😀
That thing you posted is ghastly beyond belief, only an American could wear something like that, without irony…CaptainFlashheartMember

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Terry Pratchett not wearing a hat! I’ve met him several times, at book signings, and he’s always had one on.
The hat is a part of his ‘persona’. Without it, he’s just another chap with a beard sauntering around Salisbury. (Or at least he used to be, haven’t seen him for a while now, sadly I suspect due to his deteriorating health.)
Likewise, if Slash were to tie his hair back, take the hat off, and wear something other than leather trews, he’d be largely anonymous. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
