Most people should not wear them. http://mypostingcareer.com/forums/topic/405-nerd-fashion/
Agreed. You need to have some feeling for style to wear one.
Fedoras only go well with well tailored suits. Anything less is totally unacceptable.
Nobody could rock the fedora like Tom Landry.
Sometimes I wear my green fedora. (For Dora..not Alice, not Annie, not Daisy, but for Dora.)
Ralph Macchio ruined fedoras for everyone.
Young men wearing a fedora are like Atheist Activists on the internet or bronies or other types of guys who need a good stabbing.
Seems like the only time it has looked good is in the decades past, all the hipsters have certainly destroyed it's image.
They belonged to an era where people had style.
Nowdays people wearing them look like cheap porno film directors.
Suggestions on how to select and wear a fedora: http://www.essentialstyleformen.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/6_rules_wearing_fedora_1.jpg
Most of the suggestions make good sense, but the writer just had to bring up the Auschwitz museum seemingly out of the blue in the last tip and it comes off as trite. Also disagree with the first pic as a good example; he's trying too hard and I don't care for the hat color or style either.
Best one is of Ol' Blue Eyes.
Good casual/rugged example -- goes with rule 4, which is your shirt MUST have a collar.
Agreed. They should be 'earned' by someone who is somewhat macho, a bit of a rough, not some emo faggot trying to look cool.
Obvious mega sperglord.
Nice, but I feel the lack of a feather. I think it's an Alpine thing.
<- pay 'special attention to the chick magnet. Details, gentlemen.
Proper headgear for men in spring:

I used to know a couple of guys from a Morris troupe in Firle East Sussex.
I always imagined that Morris dancers were real ale wankers singing about a long lost England that never existed in the first place anyway with a hay nonny ho.
These guys from Firle eventualy split up because of the fights they used to have with the public and each other.
They used to travel about in a shagged out ford anglia with a huge cb aerial that that could whiplash passers-by that they didnt like the look of and it had a massiv anarchist A painted on the roof.
Their other car was an even shagged out morris marina called "the acid car" whcih had only one seat which the driver used and the other passengers had to sit on beer crates.
Their music was also not what you would expect as they had one dance that was to the msuic of anarchy in the uk played on the accordian and violin.........very strange group but very funny.
If i remember rightly they were also heavily involved in one of the Lewes bonfire societies.
