As You Like it LOVES newsboy caps.

I like 'em and make 'em and wear 'em.

It really depends on your face type, whether or not it looks good on you. I don't have a pretty, feminine, girly face; gender-bending headwear comes pretty natural to me.

I think if you have very delicate features, a newsboy cap might look out of place on you.

There are a lot of sources, however. Heck, Target has a HUGE selection of flat caps, peaked caps, and those tweedy trilbies. I don't know that I'd get a trilby from Target, but the cloth caps should be good buys.


Brown cloth flat cap. (microfibre suiting)


Peaked cap, engineer style, of pillowcase ticking.


Peaked cap (same pattern) made up in Pleather, punk-style.

Um, as you can tell, I like hats.

I don't like wearing hats because they make my head itch, but when the weather is cold I sometimes wear one.

Do hat styles depend more on fashion trends, or should they be tailored to individual styles or faces, as has been said about glasses frames?

I tend to gravitate towards knit caps, I don't like the way brimmed caps look on me, and fedoras always seem pretentious to me. Don't even get me started on porkpie hats, top hats, or cat-in-the-hat "deadhead" hats.

What do you all think about hats for men?

I've never liked mens hats much, I'm also not a huge fan of hats generally...
This looks alright though.

Great topic, because I struggle with this too.

I can't wear knit caps because the make my head look small. Somebody once suggested something thicker, but then I get really hot. I tried on a cashmere one the other day, but I wanted black.

My other issue is hats worn indoors. I actually really like the way I look in a tweed newboy I have and an awesome brown fedora. I just feel wierd wearing it all day at work. It's one of the few old rules that I can't get past that a man takes off his hat indoors. Thoughts?

I see men wearing hats indoors all the time, and I share your distaste for it. To me it's like wearing sunglasses indoors or at night. Too cool for school.

I have a lot of hangups about hats and I don't know why. I am told I used to like to wear my grandfather's hats when I was young. He used to wear Homburgs. I wonder what happened.

Dunno. Top hats really suit me. But maybe they're not such a sensible choice... I also have a Soviet Submarine Captain's hat - it looks naff but is muchely warm.

So I vote for a combo of the two - go for the right shape but at the same time something like a fedora is a bit pretentious unless you're going for an over the top look.

I love hats, and I wear them a lot. I don't see any problem with wearing them indoors, unless it's a formal occasion or something.

Whenever my hair looks crappy in the morning and I don't have time to mess with it, I choose a hat and I'm off to school. I have a few newsboy and biker type hats (not sure what to call them), a couple bucket hats (which I'm no longer very fond of), a few "baseball" caps (which I never wear at all), and a black cashmere knit hat (which I wish was thicker; I have the same problem as Chris if I'm wearing a chunky sweater or jacket or something).

Funeral hats
Your assistance is required -

I have 23 days to acquire (source, purchase and receive) 3-4 superb head adornments for a collab shoot.

I am in need of hats but not any old plain ones. In fact I fear it misleading referring to what I need as 'hats'. I am in need of head accessories such as the quaint netty black types worn at funerals - with face covered, also like the idea of feather adorned ones. I have images of hats daintly perched on elegant head and also chunkier furry coyote trooper type ones.

keywords: dainty, delicate, net, feather, furry

Where can I find these???? i don't even know where to start let alone get on eBay!

Help in the form of shop referal, weblinks and loads of pictures!!

Hi SJPdeux, You might want to take the tub to Sloane Square..walk right when you get out of the tub (there's just one exit) and around the corner you'll find an amazing boutique..it's little nick nacks, hats, jewellery, silk flowers etc is constantly featured in Br Vogue..but ofcouse the name escapes me..

It's situated right next to a Emma Hope (?) shoe boutique and an amazing Ribbon store (french name..which escapes me as well)
