Still no bloody hats

Recommended Posts

I heartily recommend Marks and Spencers' range of flat caps. Always on stock, and always stylish.

I'm unable to wear a flatcap... I'm not old enough or northern so can't get away with it as genuine headware...

If I was to wear one I'd look like I was trying to be one of those guys from shoreditch with tight jeans and pointy shoes...

The issue is it's difficult to find a piece of clothing that hasn't been "hipsterised" now. I get people assuming my beard is a fashion statement as opposed to a hatred of shaving...

I'm northern & often wear a bowler hat at festivals.

thinking of getting a top hat next

Both of those are fine... No bowlers or top hats around brick lane on a friday night, everyone wears a flat cap to indicate their individuality and nonconformity...

I wouldnt be happy wearing a flat cap.
First because my old man wore one every day of his life and it would feel like taking the piss. And also, for some reason they usually look a bit camp nowadays.

Trilby or a pork pie every time for me.

I saw a guy in the street the other day wearing an American Civil War soldier's "forage" cap. Didn't have the badge on top though.

It's impossible to dress or groom your way out of everyone's idea of fashionable.

I can get our embroiderer to do hats, but it would take a minimum order to get the ball rolling. I'll speak to him and confirm prices etc - in the meantime, how about a show of hands of those who would like one?

Set up a vote (easier to count..? ;) )..?

Meanwhile...

One for me, please; any colour, any size, as long as it's warm (winter draws on... :) ).

Being concerned about [i]not[/i] looking like a 'hipster' or being trendy is just as bad as following a trend - you're letting what you think other people will think about you dictate what you wear.


Wear what you like...it's just a hat, unless [i]you[/i] invest it with more meaning...

Actually, the problem is the meaning my wife invests it with,

Well I wear what I feel both behooves me and isn't too much hassle - what people think? at an interview or something like that, sure I'll try to impress - otherwise I couldn't care less...

It is just a hat. A wonderful item for sun, rain, or snow. Especially freezing rain and hail now that I think of it. But not always the same type!
Something with a nice broad brim is perfect:

I have hats very similar to these (In fact I think I own one exactly the same as the second one)... good in the sun, good in the rain, no danger of being regarded as fashionable by anyone...

Me too! Mine is an Australian bushmans hat and it does for all weathers:

I don't wear it for gigging though, maybe I should and then stick some corks round it and include "Horse With No Name" in the set. Perfect.
