    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.

    Beanie at work, sealskin one if its raining. Just got a new leather widebrim to replace an ancient stetson that finally died. I like hats – they keeps me head warm and I don’t care if folk think I look like a dick.

    Currently following the progress of one of these across the Atlantic:

    Proper fur, not synthetic. Toasty! ๐Ÿ˜€

    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 Altzeimers

    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.
    The Beach Boys were originally called the Pendletones, because surfers wore Pendleton wool shirts aprรจs-surf, in the cool evenings. Small pop-culture factoid, there. ๐Ÿ˜€
    That thing you posted is ghastly beyond belief, only an American could wear something like that, without irony…

    Not a fan of TP’s books but that topper was a thing of beauty.

    I know, I’m only teasing. Their shirts are quite handsome. Can you imagine life in the factory where they make those jackets though. Those workers need counselling.

    Only Hats I wear are a cycling cap (or Casquette) for riding or a baseball cap for sailing.

    I say let your locks flow ๐Ÿ˜‰

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would say, if anything, hats are going through a revival at the moment/ last few years. You see loads wearing flat caps out and about. I have 3 or 4, and generally don’t go out without one.
