    Ol' Blue Eyes could rock a hat like nobody's business. Short piece from Esquire below.

    One Icon, One Detail: Frank Sinatra's Hat

    [IMG]

    We can probably all agree that few men who have ever graced this planet could sing like Ol’ Blue Eyes. But let us tell you: There’s an even smaller group who could wear a hat like Sinatra. Of course, he did have the advantage of living smack dab in the golden age of the American hat industry, when nary a man would leave the house with his head uncovered, but as we seem to be heading (no pun intended) back into a world where men wear hats again, we should still look to Sinatra for a few bits of advice.

    As Sinatra shows, a man should never let his hat wear him. Too many men wear hats with hesitation, as if they aren’t comfortable until someone tells them that they look good. But Sinatra’s at ease in his, probably because he isn't thinking about it at all. You’d do well to do the same, and act like the hat is simply an extension of you. Like — and maybe we're getting a little dramatic here — you'd be incomplete without it. The tilt is also crucial: slightly back, slightly to the side, and all-around relaxed. Which is to say: Wearing a hat isn’t a science, but an artform. So take it easy, toss on a hat, and wear it with confidence (unless you're at the dinner table). Oh, and please, leave the crooning to the master.

    Most days I wear a Flat Cap. Canted to the right. As befits a gentleman of my standing.

    That's what I wear too, and a ball cap when I'm not working.

    I actually do have a fedora like Frank's. Gray with a black rim, but I only wear it when I'm in full suit. Otherwise, I just would look retarded.

    Most people call me indie when wearing it as apparently, only Indianna Jones wore a fedora.

    I do wear one of those field caps on occasion, but I rarely wear a cap unless its really really hot out and sunny.

    but mine has a longer cover. Never have sun in my eye problems when wearing it.

    All winter long I rock the Longshoreman's toque. Come summer time I don't wear anything. Ball caps give me a headache. Albeit, I do have a flatcap that I will wear on the odd occassion.

    Not my style but the Canadians may find it practical:

    As seen at the Phora:

    They still use inches in Noofieland? I'd take a good look at how long three barleycorns are, compared to the foot royal, at that latitude....

    I'll make an exception for real good old boys in a Stetson or a Mossy Oak baseball cap, but otherwise I quickly pass very harsh judgement on anyone wearing headgear when they're not braving extreme weather.

    Killing all the hat-wearers would instantly get rid of kikes, ragheads, whiggers, frat boys and a few other groups of undesirables. And for the life of me, I can't understand why so many adorable chicks hide their features and make themselves look like retards by wearing some stupid hat.

    Obviously in the men's section, but never been a hat person, myself.
    If I have to, I wear a headband or ear muffs.
