Hats

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

I wore a sleeping hat until I was 20 and it got ruined in the wash. Been looking all week and think I have found a good one online that I will order tomorrow.
I didn't even know sleeping hats were a thing anymore. Your post caused me to google them and I stumbled on this. Sounds legit to me and they're on sale! (batteries not included)

I just ordered this for $10 with free shipping.

I like it. If it comes with the wig you might not need it though.

Looks better than most beanie hats I see.

I asked them to change the color to Buffalo Red Check and it should be here in time for Christmas which is good because I want to try it out Christmas Eve.

I don't have one but I know people that do and they love the things. They are probably one of the most useful hats out there thanks to the chin strap, the brim and the breathable material. They guys I know that have them wear them all the time.

I favor fedoras in general out on the town when I happen to be wearing a button up shirt. And always fedoras when wearing a suit.

If I'm wearing a tee-shirt, my go to is my D&D ballcap. Silver colored metallic D&D ampersand, black cap.

Key to a proper fedora is a straight-sided open crown that you crease yourself. The taller and straighter the crown (though it should be in proportion to the brim width), the easier it is to crease well. It's like the difference between wearing a clip-on tie and one you tie yourself. Do not be alarmed. It's easy to do and almost impossible to mess up. It's your own mark, like your fingerprint. I encourage you all to try it. Fur felt works best.

I keep coming back to this photo that shows the individuality of each man's hat. This is how it was done in the old days.Image

I washed a wool ivy cap and a wool fiddler's cap. It said not to machine wash, but I showed them.

I have a black wool fedora that I recently purchased that I wear with my suit, usually to church. I have a black drivers cap that's my daily wear for most occasions. A grey driving cap to double as a smoking hat. Two boonie hats for work when it's hot and the sun is shining, Army Universal Camouflage Pattern and OCP. A beret I wear as a bonnet when I'm kilted (day dress). A Glengarry I wear when kilted (evening dress). And a leather outback hat for when I'm out hiking in the summer.

For the wintertime, I have a black leather trapper hat for church or when I'm in a suit. And two different ski caps for if I'm going to be out and about.

I think that's it.
