I really dislike the Alexander McQueen ones. They look so uncomfortable with all that hair(greasy looking hair I might add) stuck onto your face.

^ Ah well, I think they were more for the show than anything to be actually sold at McQueen stores

Has anyone seen any good hats with veils in stores recently? Those of you who already have a veiled hat, did you get it brand new (from where?) or is it vintage/second hand?

Now in the Harajuku Style thread, some fear that the looks there would be too costume-like. Well, this is even more costume-like. It's something you have to be careful of trying this out.

old school, but with modern appeal, these are definitely sexy and classy

Great trendspotting, crowfrogs!.
The Chanel pieces are my favorites, not so much the upper part but the spirals? on the face, they're beautifully finished.
I always loved veiled hats, especially when it's a subtle part what they're covering, it's very intriguing and even provocative..

I'm not sure, John, I think hats have been dumped into the eccentricism department over the last years, maybe decades, and I honestly thought it was just too much extravagance to wear them in an urban environment but look at fedoras this past couple years, they've really surfaced to a mainstream level, they may not be my favorite kind of hat but they give me hope... hat veils too could really be reduced to a more simple, perhaps less dramatic item so people, for better or for worse, could wear them while doing their mundane activities and maybe jump into the too 'trendy' territory but at least rescue them from the 'costume' category they're in..

^ Very good point. I think there will be even more attention given to hats since "it bags" are going out.

I think that these hat veils could work if worn with more modern outfits... but if one goes and creates a whole 40's look, it might look a bit out of place and costume-y. If one can blend it in with the rest of the outfit... then why not?

The Alexander McQueen's veil hat reminds me of hair nets worn by school cafeteria workers but I love the ones designed by Chanel ... it's so Victorian

Urban outfitters has as a few of these... some clips & a hat all with the netting.
I really like them. I just dont know how wearable they are for me since I rarely go anywhere that dressed up.

one of my friend's mother is really fond of those ... she has like two boxes full of them ... which could easily make a collection of 30-40 "hat veils" ... and my friend (her daughter) loves to wear them .....
even on the beach

the tricky thing about veils is wind. they get into your eyes and tangle up with your eyelashes!!

i love hat veils! i was on the hunt for a vintage one for a couple years now and then low and behold, 6 months ago i walk into urban outfitters and picked one up! black, with netting and feathers...classicly 80's
gorgeous and can be worn with actually quite a lot. wearing it with all black definitely gives a great berlin nightclub feel...
