    i've always wore hats of some sort but I have to say that between the old skinhead/two tone style, where people wore pork pie hats and of course the uke, I now class the pork pie hat as my favourite hat love em

    You do look good in them Jim.

    I don't particularly like wearing hats. I used to wear a Stetson when taking photos in inclement weather. Great for keeping the water out of your face and off the camera. And from going down your collar.

    In the summer, if I know I'm going to be outside for more than an hour I have a packable wide brim canvas/mesh hat.

    But I don't have a uke hat per se.

    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.

    Yup. I have lots of hats. Mostly wide-brimmed when I'm out doors (I've had 2nd degree sunburn on my head and neck twice, so ALWAYS have a hat now), but various straw hats, berets, a coachman style (Short top hat) that is evocative of Steampunk, and my John Hartford Tribute Bowler (aka, tall derby). That's the one on my business card.

    I don't wear a ball cap; I want the back of my neck and my ears covered, and most of the ball caps that have been given to me push down on my glasses.

    Someone took this shot of me at the local Farmer's Market a couple of years ago, with the bowler...

    I like that one Ksiegel. It looks good on you.

    I read that John Hartford got the idea for his stage outfit after seeing Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) in his bicycle scene.

    I like the wide brimmed visors that are open at the top so you can still do a high ponytail

    Also I am from Canada too but I feel like I’ve never heard anyone use the term toque haha, just beanies

    My newest hat is the one in the thumbnail. My friend Arnie phoned me last summer and asked if I'd like to meet him for breakfast. After we finished eating, he said, "Come on out to the truck. I have a gift for you."
    What a nice guy.
    Nice! Except for the boater - skimmer - I have the same hats. I'll have to get one of those straw boaters. I got a top hat liker yours for my son. I liked it so much that I got one for myself.

    I see you're in Canada. The bowler is called a derby in the USA, but in England it's a bowler. Maybe "bowler" is more common in Canada. The boater was popular because men wore hats virtually any time they went outside. The straw hat was cooler, so it was better for summer temperatures. "Straw Hat Day" was when men switched to the straw hat for a few months.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    As I said before, I’ve always been a hat man, but, unfortunately, I have a large head. I usta carry watermelons home from the store in my hats.

    Anyway, I really do like to wear ‘em, but it’s difficult to find one that’s large enough for me. Yet, every once in a while, I find one that’s too BIG for me, and I’m always amazed. Whoever buys that hat must have a head like a basketball!

    Being me though, if I had a “regular” sized head, I’d hate wearing a hat. I like my Stetson “Rancher” the best, and straw, “brimmed” hats in the summer. Everyone looks at me questioningly though when I’m wearing a hat — envious?

    Snap brim caps are good in the winter, but one looks like a roaring twenties gangster.
