    The "Trilby" is the classic Ukulele players' hat, like what Jake or Aldrine wears. I have a nice straw Trilby made by Ben Sherman, with a wooden Ukulele pin on the band. Can't say that it helps my playing, but I do feel that it looks good on me. It mostly hangs around on something in my music room, just adding to the decor.

    My niece texted me last year asking what a "took" (sic) was. I had no idea what she was talking about (a type of foolish hobbit?) until she used it in context: "5 goooooooolden tooks" (sic)

    Yes, very funny.

    EDIT: If you can find the movie "Strange Brew," from 1993, you'll laugh through it.

    I guess I ordered a trilby from Amazon by mistake. I remember looking at it and reading the reviews, but they weren't great. It's arriving today, so I'll see how it looks.

    I have a Triby I bought to wear in the winter (Ha!), but I don’t like it. It makes me look like a little ol’ man. True, I am one, but I certainly don’t wanna look like it.

    At least it fits well. It would probably look good on me, strumming a few tunes, if I was forty years younger —ahhh, well. . .

    I had never heard the word "Trilby" before this post. I always called these pork pie hats. Hey Down Up Dick, I look like an ol' man with my pork pie (trilby), but no more than without it.

    Lester Young was famous for his pork pie hats. Here are his instructions for making one.
