    the business hat. I want it back. IT IS UP TO OUR GENERATION TO DO SO.

    i blame the baby boomers and gen x for being lame as shit, so far as hats are concerned.

    I think dudes like JFK predate gen x by quite some time if we're going to point fingers.

    edit: so the demise of the hat is a little earlier than i said. that doesn't make it any less of a problem

    Interesting. I didn't think JFK started it, I thought he was just a highly visible example of the trend. But live and learn!

    Your face is terrible. :P

    In all seriousness how many iconic characters have rocked the fedora? Dick Tracy, Indiana Jones, The Shadow to name just a few. Hell, as much as I hate to admit it, Michael Jackson actually looked pretty cool with the ferdora in his video.

    See, these are all make believe characters. Yes, I'm including MJ in that.

    99.5% of people in real life wearing Fedoras look awful.

    Hats look almost universally awful. Baseball caps are generally ok if you're in a casual setting, toques are good in winter (I put beanies in with toques since I own one :P)

    Are you going to wear it with 3 layered polos with all the collars popped?

    I thought about doing it, but if anyone didn't get that I was supposed to be an asshole wearing it, I might just cry.

    I wore caps for a long time, and still do when the weather requires it, but I finally sprung on a quality fedora and it's probably the best purchase, clotheswise, I've done. Also the most money I've spent on a single thing, clotheswise.

    I think if you want to wear a hat, wear it like you want it. I've never heard anyone assume that I'm wearing it ironically, but I have been stopped in the street several times by people asking me where I got it.

    So yeah, I wuv my hat and bemoan the lack of hat-wearing in todays society.

    I had a fedora it got ruined sadly. I wore it as part of my suit, and man I looked swanky. I also have my baseball caps mostly Cardinals. I also have one of those hats that are worn by like paper boys. It looks decent. I have a high hair line now so I don't mind hiding it with a hat.

    the paperboy hats are definitely awesome, but have a strong working class association. As such, I think if you were to wear one to the office you would risk marginalizing your image.

    Or looking too irish.

    Are you talking about flatcaps?

    ah. apparently I am.

    these:

    I guess a paper boy cap is different? Is that also called a newsie cap?

    I used to wear one of those when I was 18 to 20.

    I had a Kangol Coral Newsboy, just like the red on in the picture except the lip on mine was also red.

    Of course... in classic B-Boy style, I wore mine backwards so you could see the white Kangol Kangaroo.

    Just say no to hats.

    I've seen three people in person in my whole life who wore a hat appropriately. There are few situations in day to day life for the average person where hats have a functional purpose and are well placed with the outfit.

    JFK had a good idea. Forget hats. When people realized that was fine the world became a better place.

    Hell, it isn't just fedora or bowlers or formal hats. Flat caps and gatsby hats are still worn poorly.

    Baseball caps seem to be exempt for some reason partly because it actually goes with any t-shirt/jeans. It is unfortunate it is associated with hiding a receding hairline.
