    I adore hats! My everyday winter hat is made of heavy-weight olive-green cotton flannel (scrap from a suit I made myself) and has a ruched crown and a broad snap-brim which I generally keep turned up, though I will pull the front down, Robin-Hood style when it is raining, to keep my glasses dry. I lined it with some paisley-printed green satin left over from a dress I made to wear to a friend's wedding.

    My favorite decorative/non-functional hat is the pleather biker hat I made for myself out of scrap from my pimpin' pleather trench coat (inspired by the coat SMG always wore as Buffy in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") I'm wearing the hat in the picture I use as my avatar, though it is a little hard to see since the picture is so tiny. It has a little chain held down by two silver buttons across the front and it is lined in fuscia satin.

    I've got an old brown/grey tweed men's Stetson hat (like old men wear, not a cowboy hat) that I love to bits and pieces, and I may be getting a grey/black one pretty soon. Very gender bending.

    My other winter hat, that I don't wear so much because it doesn't cover my ears, is a red, velvet porkpie hat. I bought it because it was so pretty, but it isn't that practical, as it is not a snug fit so it blows off easily, it is too heavy for fall wear and as mentioned before, doesn't cover my ears. There is a reason I don't often make impulse purchases...

    For men, I love those flat caps (used to be stereotypical wear for Yorkshire men) but they can look really cute. They're akin to the Kangol hats that were so popular a couple of years ago. Fedoras are great, too--my husband has one and he looks so snazzy in it. If you're really cheeky and can wear a bowler without looking like a prat, my hat is off to you, and I may swoon in your general direction. Also, any really witty winter hat, like the ones that look like old aviator helmets or the liripipe style ones. Something about a man who is confident enough to wear a truly silly hat just warms the cockles of my heart.

    what styles of fedoras would you guys recommmend? Ive been wanting one real bad since last night,I dont know why but now im going to have to go around looking for one.

    I just dont want it to make me look like either Michael Jackson, a mobster, or some lame hip hop person.

    I think fedora's are just great for men (and for women as well :P, as i just bought one last week from Topmen) Black ones go perfect with black outerwear, black jackets, white coats. Also if you dig a smart style than i think its the best accessory for winter. Beige, brown fedora's goes perfect with a men outfit with jeans aswell, add some red and i think it would look really cool =)

    When going out at night, with a complete black outfit, wearing a black fedora and a fire red lipstick! turns me on and i really love it! :blush:

    Apart from the fedora love, i would say the military style caps [black or dark green] they look quite cool and comphy and they never give this lausy look of a normal cap. They offer style in my eyes =)

    And for this winter, i give my vote to wool beanies with a visor for men. They are simply great and it always gives me a smile when i see a guy wearing one while walking on the road. Its hot :heart: and i think looks perfect on men when they wear it with a blazer jacket and a capped sweatshirt worn into it. mmm, just my thoughts! :blush::wub:

    :huh: Not sure... anyone else?

    YBF - do you mean colors and textures for a fedora? What would work best with your existing wardrobe. I think that's the easiest way to find one that won't look contrived. What types of colors do you wear now?

    I like the top 3 above :flower: The second one is my favorite!

    Has anyone ever heard that if you wear hats indoors, it causes baldness?? :o Or just wearing hats a lot in general. I wonder if that is true.





    I found this on lifestyle.msn.com

    well- it's definitely not true gius o i wouldn't worry about it...:P


    what do you guys call that slouchy style knit beanie kind of hat that everyone was wearing a couple years ago...?
    both men and women...

    and is anyone still planning on wearing one this season or are they gone completely now?

    don't you think it seems like a big floppy 70's style women's hat will be popular for fall...?

    I'm quite a hat advocate and I wish more people would wear them. I believe they're one of the most underrated accessories currently. I currently have quite an impressive hat collection but I'm dying for a good top hat to rock in my wardrobe. I'm having a hard time finding one that isn't a costume hat and fits right.

    I see Mary-Kate rocking one every now and then and I think it's so cute.
