    Never owned a fedora. My dad always wore them, but then he was prone to skin cancer.

    The fedora is a great hat. Sunshade and it keeps the rain off your face and neck

    I am. Partly because I love how the blues guys look with them and partly because I can’t stand the sight of my bald head since my hair fell out due to stress (special thanks to Covid lockdowns and my rock’n’roll-hating partner).

    Unless you're an old blues guy, just don't. As a TDPRI member in good standing you're almost certainly not a D-bag, so you probably don't want to associate yourself with them.

    ...but if you do, for the love of all things holy take it off when you enter a building. There are rules to these things.

    As for me, well...

    Ball caps for me. I have a Fender cap, a BMW cap, and a bunch of them from Hawaii.

    A classic line. I don’t have one at the moment but that will be remedied.

    Oh, do NOT get me started! I have a soft brown one I got at Orvis, a gray narrow-brim Stetson (that I call my Tom Landry hat), a black Tomasz & Williamson hard-brim... I love a fedora.

    I liked one on my dad when he wore it with a suit when he left for, and returned from, work when I was a kid in the 1950s.
    Still miss you, Dad.

    I like them but don’t have one yet. I’ve been contemplating a Panama/Ecuador hat in a fedora or patron. I need a summer hat because I am susceptible to sun and heat

    Sorry, but nothing screams "Past it Blues Daddy" like a Fedora. I'll sometimes wear a ball cap from my Boy Scout days with my grandson when out mowing, but other than that, I don't care for hats.

    I've got a couple, but I'm more partial to pork-pie hats.

    I love them! I wear a wide brim hat everyday to protect my face from the sun, as I've had some stuff removed. I never wear my had inside & absolutely not at the dinner table, per my mother's rules.
