    Nice! I love that top hat on you, I always thought of getting one but I would look ridiculous in it. You do it well (has a little intimidating factor to it ). Love your black derby as well. I'll have to take a pic of me in mine too.

    Maybe time to put the Trilby away, although I really like to wear it. The weather's been pretty warm lately, and it's supposed to rain in SoCal starting tonight for a coupla days. Time for my visored felt cap, or my white snap brim cap.

    I got my hair cut really short, so I don't know how they're gonna fit. The beach hat that I sometimes wear around the house fits kinda funny now.

    I'm looking forward to Easter when I can probably wear my straw Stetson and my ventilated Pork Pie.

    Well, my Trilby and my felt, waterproof "snap brim" cap and my wool snap brim cap are on vacation until the fall.

    Time for my ventilated straw pork pie and my white straw one too. I'll be wearing my white cloth and straw snap brim caps too. I'll wait until Easter for my Stetson "Rancher".

    It's great to have new hats to wear. Even though I wore them last summer.

    I bought some indiana jones branded felt hat on sale at amazon some years ago...okay apparently not from amazon, but the same as this one: https://www.amazon.com/Indiana-Jones.../dp/B001AERQZ2 . I wear that during the colder months. I have 2 warm weather hats I bought from costco, one with with loose fabric back for working outside and another similar full brimmed one I keep in my car. I have an old boonie hat and another tan cotton hat that I don't really wear anymore as I really need sun protection since they started scraping cancer off my face when I was still in my 30s.

    I'm a big hat wearer too. Have been for about five years now. Indeed, I feel naked without one now when I go out.

    After only a short time of wide brimmed hat wearing, I could not believe that such a useful item ever fell out of fashion. It keeps your head dry in a light shower, it makes sunglasses redundant, keeps your head cool on a sunny day and on cold winter days it keeps your overall temperature up. And hats just look so cool!

    If you want to see my extensive collection. Try looking through my youtube videos where I nearly always wear a hat.

    In one of my recent videos - an instrumental entitled "Spring in my Step" - I even included some photos of my Tyrolean hat decorated in flowers and berries I found on my walks around the local hills here in Catalunya.

    Sometimes I wear a hat or cap in the house, especially when my hair is uncombable. My old-fashioned wife doesn't like it and lets me know it.

    Ahhh, well . . . Hats are comfortable - anywhere!

    Am I not alone in wearing wool or fur felt during summer? I do often even though I have straws.

    Sometimes when I practice my uke while sipping coffee in the morning (my favorite time) I have one of my hats on. I love it. But when my wife sees me she asks me to take it off while indoors as well. What can i do.

    I just bought a new fur felt short brim fedora will post pictures soon

    You have more hats than I do. A very 'eclectic ' selection of hats you do possess. I like the bolero you have on in one of them.
