    I went to an indie music DIY convention, and at one of the panels, this guy raised his hand for a question. The panel moderator said "yes, you sir, in the hat" and he grumpily said "it's a fedora" then proceeded with his question.

    oh, that was funny, I don't know why, just seemed like he was so serious that the panel moderator, and the entire audience knew that it was a fedora.

    on a bass related note, Mike Watt was on one of the panels, but I had to go halfway through it.

    oh yeah, and this thread has been done before :p

    I believe someone actually found this place that made custom wooden hats, including fedoras, they looked really nice, but they were $$$ and more of a novelty item, doubt they'd be very comfortable :meh:

    So it has.....:(

    A quick search revealed someone beat me to this pun by almost a year!

    You know TB may be reaching the limit of "possible threads" when you have to do a search to make sure the stupid thread that you are about to post (which is in no way bass related) has not already been posted before!

    A fedora is simply a style of hat.

    Then what was the aforementioned dude's deal? I hate people like that. "This is not a movie, this is a film" well dumb*** they're the same thing.

    Yes and no...without going too far OT, sometimes some people can find using the "generic" titles offensive:

    for example referring to someone as "asian" rather than "korean" or "vietnamese" etc

    Also, a Fedora is a sub-class of the "hat" genre - so maybe he wasn't implying that it was not a hat, but identifying the particular type of hat :)

    Unless of course it is one of the "evil" topics in which case we are not allowed to carry on a conversation about it :D
