Post your hat

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by funkalicious101, Jun 24, 2008.

  1. Inspired by the "Post your Sunglasses" thread and all of its inspirations.

    Until about a month and two days ago I was against wearing hats and would fight to the death to keep them off my head. I dont know why, maybe it was the shape of my face or head, or the long hair, but I thought I looked horribly stupid in any hat.

    Then I was told, by several people mind you, that I was the only person this year that could pull off wearing a fedora to grad. Being a big enough jackass to do it I went looking for a hat a couple days before grad.

    I stumble across a really cool hat store (I forget the name, but if theres anyone in Edmonton here its the one above the Starbucks on Whyte) and tried on couple.

    To my astonishment I was actually able to find a hat that I loved. A Bailey Wynn Fedora (I think its technically a Trilby if you want to get technical though).


    I actually got a black one, but the lighter colour shows the contours of the hat much better. Its crushable (which I thought was the coolest thing ever) and I was assured it was "a good starter fedora." That last part kind of scared me to be honest... Will I end up with racks and racks of hats in my lifetime?

    But post your hat, and maybe let us know why you chose that one.
  2. You can find mine at the bass playing hats thread.

    EDIT// Oh, and I chose it because all I've ever wanted was a big mad hatter top hat. A real one, not a costume one. My head is too big for baseball caps etc.

    This would take me days.

    To quote the Thai restaurant owner on that Simpsons episode, "BASEBALL CAPS EVERYWHERE!"
  4. All my hats are Tar Heels hats. This is my current fav...

    Bought this when I got a pro setup on one of my basses. It was sitting in the back of the shop collecting dust. Guy sold it to me for $5.


    My old pinstripe Sox hat. Go Sox!:bassist:

    Thoes are the only graphic hats I own. The rest are plain beanies.

    Yes I know I look ********.
  9. Ae you kidding? Everyone in the world looks cool in a fedora.

    Except me.... On a good day I think I can pull of Hasidic Jew or some guy who owns a circus. I suppose the long hair isnt really helping with either of those.

    I get a lot of compliments though (but maybe I only run into really nice people) and its just fun to wear, so every morning I put it on and just give em hell.

    This is me with long hair and the fedora.

  11. My Cairns "New Yorker" all leather fire helmet. It's a classic. I love it because if you're a firefighter your helmet is a very personal and special thing to you. (It doesn't look so big when I have the rest of my gear on!)


    And this is what I wear for normal hat situations :)

    Haha, my ex-girl friend's mom used to date the drummer from Molly Hatchet. They played a lot in my home town from what I hear.

    T is for Tim, not Tennessee. I know I bought it when I was at Tennessee, but not why I bought it.

    That and I like orange.

    Mine's a lot dirtier.
  15. It depends... is it:


    or Race Day?

    But mine is alternating silver and black stripes, not brown. I'll post a "real" pic of me in mine later.
  17. This is what I am wearing these days

    This is what I wear when I am on the motorcycle

    This is what I wore before I had the dreads. It doesn't fit over them anymore.

  18. I'm so tempted to start an anti-Atoz Photoshop thread. He's morphed into his polar opposite!!!!!!
