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.

A black fedora, no doubt.

I'm a former mason (32nd degree SR - home lodge Columbia #14, Boulder, Colorado). I miss it.

Our lodge had a great old black felt top hat for the WM. Really fantastic hat.

Are you a bass player in a hipster band? :wink:

I too wish there were better occasions to wear hats, but fashion has changed so much. I find fedoras, trilbys, porkpies, etc all look slouchy without a suit. Since no one really wears suits anymore, there seems little point in wearing the hat. I save my hat wearing for the theatre.

Incidentally, I recently was in a production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" where I got to wear a period top hat. It was a beautiful hat and I looked awesome in it. I'd totally get egged if I wore it on the street though.

I'm sure any young lady could wear this hat and look fetching. However, you'd need the flapper dress to accompany it. And the flask tucked in your garter to accompany the dress. Voh-dee-oh-doh!

I wish it were still 1925, at least for the clothing. I'd probably already have been killed in the Somme, however. So I suppose I wouldn't get much enjoyment out of a snazzy hat.

Guitarist in a Van Halen cover band actually.

As for suits I wear them almost daily on a sportcoat (lots of tweeds in season). New Orleans is a lot like New York in that you see lots of suits. Tend to see lots of bow ties as well (especially around the med school and hospital as you don't worry about a long tie falling to touch a patient).

Point is - lots of suits and hats in NOLA. It's all pretty swell other than that godawful seersucker.

I see, then I recommend wide-brimmed fedoras. The narrow ones look silly.

I actually like this hat a lot. Don't listen to Kirk on this one, Lush. I have two porkpie's, one straw for warm weather and one felt, and they totally rock. I really like mine. I say go for it. The style would suit you.

Dude, there's a totally different vibe that comes with a hammock. You gotta be vibin' in a hammock.
