Every man is what his hat says, what is your hat /class/?

Ivy cap is mine, but mine is grey.

All of the above in a multitude of styles, colours and fabrics.

I don't usually wear a hat, but when I do, a simple ball cap. I guess when it comes to hats, I am unrefined.

A flat brim? Surely you jest.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/01/09(Wed)21:51 No. 1935

Usually for more formal affairs I go hat-less, however when I am about I find that the "cadet" style of cap has a wide range of capabilities in both urban and outdoors environments, fitting in any simple and casual style (with an addition of intelligence, with the advent of more contemporary headwear.)

While I am respectful of other gent's choices when it comes to appearance, I'm afraid that just won't do at all.

I belive this is a variant though a common style called a "flat cap"
Its waxed or oiled fine canvas, wool lined and loose fitting so as to not cramp my style.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/01/13(Sun)13:12 No. 1965

A simple ball cap is my fancy. I have brought up quite a collection.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/01/14(Mon)03:08 No. 1967


I too prefer and have acquired a collection of ball-caps, which has now expanded to a total of 15.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/01/15(Tue)17:04 No. 1977

I'm surprised no one has brought up the fedora yet. It would be my hat of choice, were it not so hard to find fedoras that were flattering to my overlarge head.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/01/15(Tue)23:26 No. 1981

i have a number of hats.

1 a wider brimmed black fedora with my choice of either white gray or red hatband. lined interior. its very nice and formal.

2 a wide brimmed boonie hat. it has a chinstrap-retainer cord, venting eyelets, snaps on the sides, and a nylon strap that is bunch-stitched around it as a hatband.

3 a tricorne hat, black felt and unfinished edges, with a high 'prow'. it also has a number of feathers. Arrg matey !

4 a Czech steel helmet. purchased at a surplus shop, because they didn't have any german stahlhelms, never mind any actual kevlar helmets. im thinking of putting a pvc 40k Aquila on the front.

Gentlemen, please tell me those of you saying "fedora" do not in fact mean this bastardization of such, the trilby. Too many mistake the trilby for it's father, the fedora. Trilbies are embarrassments, almost never looking anywhere near decent. The broader brimmed fedora, on the other hand...

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/01/26(Sat)21:48 No. 2011

I would be inclined to disagree with you on both fronts. Both the Trilby and the Fedora have the ability to look horrendous in social events, depending on the rest of ones ensemble. Wearing a v-neck shirt and skinny jeans topped with either is a mistake that shows up frequently in hipster locales as well as magazines showcasing actors. Wearing a trilby or fedora with a suit, and both toppers take on a more distinguished and complimentary appearance.

' im thinking of putting a pvc 40k Aquila on the front'

I love you.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/02/12(Tue)19:24 No. 2060

Fedoras and Trilbies are much the same in terms of being mostly out of style today. Even with a suit, both virtually always look dreadful on anybody under about 50 years old. If you absolutely must wear one, please match it to your suit, and (it goes without saying) never wear it indoors. The safest bet is probably a grey/black Oxford cloth fedora, rather than a plain black or white one, though this may admittedly be more a matter of personal taste.

I own something like this because it cost me something around 2 dollars. So obviously it's not a real hat, but it's a fun little plaything.

I also wear a top hat on stage. I play music in a suit, complimented by said hat. It's one of the handful of hats in existence that actually suit me. I just don't have a hat head. That's why I prefer to remain hatless in everyday life.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/02/23(Sat)05:31 No. 2084

I'm not jesting when I say that I wear a top hat. I had to use a cane at some point in my life, and I found that the had complemented it.

Newsboy cap, tailor-made as it is.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/04/11(Thu)09:55 No. 2249

hats are for men losing their hair. I still have a full bushy head so I go cap-less

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/04/11(Thu)23:46 No. 2251

I agree. Hats should not be worn without logical or for frivolous reasons.

I only use a hat when I'm outdoors.
Image related. Tilley T3.
Starting to show some balding. Since I won't take treatment to prevent it I'm forced to use a hat as a protection against sunburn.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/05/11(Sat)22:59 No. 2332

It seems I share the same hat as you albeit in dark brown.

I too have a penchant for Ivy caps. I used to have a very nice London fog one which I outgrew so now I only have this canvas one but am looking for a tweed one.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/05/12(Sun)23:14 No. 2334

I used to own a black tirlby until a friend of mine borrowed in and crushed it all to hell by by leaving it on the floor of his room for 2 months (later I found out he did me a favor). While I mostly agree with you, I actually bought a wicker trilby last summer for going to the beach and I've actually grown quite fond of it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/05/15(Wed)14:19 No. 2336

surely you are pulling our legs?
For me I have an ivy cap but is plaid green and I am in the market for a plaid red one my fine gentlemen.

It keeps the sun off.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/04/01(Fri)08:50 No. 3147

I stick with a beanie - and here is why:
1)My beanie is tall enough. Enough to put away, let's say, a pack of fine cigarettes, or, maybe a joint.
2)It is made of hood fabric, warms my head and ears during winter, and protects from sun stroke during summer.
3)It was a gift.
4)Beanie never constricts blow flow to the head. Which gives me some time given my bald-after-30 genetic makeup.
5)Generally, it's on point with almost every other outfit, be it jeans and jacket or summer shorts and a tee.

I'd love myself a snow cap with those stringy orb things at the end of each ear flap though, or a neat flannel textured flat cap that meets all the previous statements.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/06/17(Fri)16:01 No. 3174

Head wear can also be beneficial for keeping the sun out of your eyes and for keeping warm when it is cold.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/07/02(Sat)19:55 No. 3183

>4)Beanie never constricts blow flow to the head.

Neither do properly fitted hats of most other varieties.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/08/13(Sat)01:26 No. 3187

Only the finest fedora.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/08/28(Sun)22:15 No. 3196

I'll be either getting my grandfathers western hat he wore as a sheriff steamed and fitted, or i'll purchase a new one. I'm a Texan so it seems fitting and won't be very out of place. I hope you all take your hats off when going inside.
