    Got hats, no horse...afterall, they’re all ladies ;)
    I’ve been wearing hats steady, for about a decade, now...the runway’s been growing, so the hat adds shade, warmth & style, to this character .

    If you don't own one - you should!

    Matter of fact - it's been sitting on top of the bass HSC for several days near the big TV.

    Yeah, Stetson Open Road, fedora style, a la '70s Dylan or Hank Williams - the original one. Reluctantly picked it up for a Western Swing gig a few years back, but since then, as I've moved more from jazz to country gigs, I've embraced it. Don't even get me started on vintage Rockmount shirts, and how much coin I've dropped on them. o_OI mean, some things are just cool.

    I have a big box of hats of all kinds. I can't really explain it, but now and then I just feel like wearin' a hat.

    Yup. One summer straw, one winter felt, one rainy work and one formal for the fair (list does not include fedoras or baseballs or pullovers). If you see me without a hat, I'm either in bed, taking a shower or at a la de da restaurant.

    I love to ride horses, but I already have a bottomless pit hobby for money.;)

    I used to have one, a nice Resistol. I wore it hard, lots of fishing, cutting firewood, camping. . . . It disappeared one time, and it was several years before I found it, crawling around 'way back under my house. I don't know if I'd forgot it back there on some previous project or if our dog (whichever dog we had when I lost it) had dragged it back there. The hat was shot, but there was still a green Blue Fox spin lure stuck in the hatband.

    I think that hat cost $250 or so when I bought it; it would probably be about twice that now.

    I'd like to get a Stetson Rancher, but the sizes stop just shy of big enough for my fat head.

    Not a cowboy by a long shot, but my wife and I took a trip and went into a hat shop in a touristy area. We were just goofing around trying on hats and I found a black cowboy hat that just somehow looked great on me. She told me I had to buy it, and I did. Some things are just meant to be.

    I see by your hat that you are a cowboy
    I see by your hat that you're a cowboy, too
    We see by our hats that we are both cowboys
    If you get a hat you can be a cowboy, too

    I have a black one that has a flat brim. It's more Neil Young then SRV. My hatband is beaded and has a sea shell attached to it.

    I have a nice brown top hat for those special gigs.

    I always wear a hat.
    Usually a ball cap of some kind.
    It keeps curious insects of my bald, warty, misshapen, pasty white noggin.
    Cuts down on the glare.
    I totally agree with your assessment of the cowboy hat.
    Stupidest looking hat ever!

    It's a big old straw cowboy hat and I wear it on the tractor. It goes awesome with camo cargo shorts.

    I've got a Resistol...George Strait's pro model. It's getting worn and raggedy since I wear it quite frequently.

    I own and wear a Larry Mahan straw hat that is at least 30 years old.

    My dad had a clothing store in the late 60s and early 70s. One day he brought home a leather cowboy hat. He never wore it. This was 1971. I was a little long haired senior with blond hair down to my ass and I started to wear it all the time. It became my trademark at school, everyone called me General Custer. I loved that hat. One day I woke up and couldn’t find my hat. My dad told me he gave it to my uncle Jerry because he never wore it. He had no clue that I was wearing it every day. Never had another one.

    I’ve got an Akubra Snowy River, a Traveler and a Banjo Paterson. Since they’re Australian, I don’t know if that’s a yes or no. I also have several fedoras and a full head of hair...

    I have one that was my dad used to wear. He's been gone for 16 years. The hat hangs on the wall. I'm not much for wearing hats of any kind.
