    Smile Hat acquisition syndrome

    How many hats you have you own/ in rotation?
    What kind of hats? I'm not talking about baseball caps here, sorry. Fedoras, pork pies, Panama straw, fur felt, bowlers, cowboy, etc is what I'm asking about.

    Have any pics?
    I'll try to show you some of my hats. I've had issues w HAS prior to uke and guitar but now heading back to it. It can get worse than UAS.

    Pic isn't the best, but this is my cashmere blend, high crown fedora. It is real lovely in person, trust me. It is my favorite now and wear it everywhere even w shorts and tee. I m hesitant to show pic of me wearing it cuz I don't want to show my face closeup but maybe one day

    Cool hat. I love a nice hat and would wear one more often if they didn't give me hat head. I will only wear one when I'm confident that I can leave it on. Otherwise, I hate the crazy hair look when I take it off in public.

    I have a great black Trilby for winter, and a Stetson "Gentleman Rancher" (Anyway they usta be called that -- small, straw -- western.) for the summer. I also wear a coupla different straw, snap-brim fedoras in the summer.

    I also wear snap brim caps, but not baseball type. My head's too big for ones that connect in the back. I only wear sized caps.

    Anyway, I've always worn hats and caps. They have been part of me for 21 years in the air force and even as a kid.

    Hat head is not good, luckily I don't have too much of it so just a couple of run-throughs with my hand and my hair is good. I usually keep it on all day if I'm outside anyways.

    I thought I had a big head! Let's see your hat Dick.


    Here is a few more of mine. The olive diamond crown and the grey straw porkpie are my (used to be) daily beaters. The other ones are on rare certain occasion. Let say, playing ukulele at the beach one day!

    I always wear a hat.

    Partial to Kangol hats, the classic caps and especially the Tropic Playa porkpie for this hot climate.
    Jaxon makes some really nice straw fedoras at a good price.
    I've got 2 custom made rabbit fur fedoras that I got in Colorado that are pretty awesome.

    Yes jaxon does make some good straw hats. The grey pork pie straw I have is jaxon.
    I would love to get a nice rabbit fur or beaver but they are so expensive! (But that of course shouldnt deter a 'acquisition syndrome man' lol)

    Here is a small sampling of mine. I usually wear a hat on stage, but a few of these I will wear when I'm not performing as well.
