Comments on: Fedora Hat – The Hattitude Is Back We Show You How Tue, 12 Dec 2017 17:31:02 +0000 hourly 1 By: The Capatin Fri, 06 Oct 2017 08:53:00 +0000 I wear both bowlers and fedoras. My latest “new to me” lids are a 1955 Champ fedora in “as new” condition and a 1970’s Stetson gray bowler that is also in “as new” shape. I have eight bowlers including 3 in black, 1 in navy blue, 2 in dark brown (one has a tan binder and ribbon) and I have a tan bowler with a chocolate brown ribbing and edge binding) being delivered by October 15th. I have 5 fedoras (one is wool) and a custom made hat for me from Northwest Hats in Eugene, Oregon. It should be here by November. I have about 4 caps for casual summer wear and a Panama for the really hot days. (I even have a “dressage” or “Deadwood” low-crown wool top hat for dressier occasions)! I am complimented all the time and enjoy the positive attention that I receive for dressing well. A dress shirt, sports coat/blazer and a hat go a long way toward gaining respect on the street.

Too many wear a t-shirt and jeans and athletic shoes with white socks (yuck). These, coupled with a camouflage ball cap/”dad hat” makes an adult male look a bit juvenile or like a poor ignorant country bumpkin.

Grown men need to dress the part.
