My husband just bought a hat. It’s one of those Irish/Scottish looking plaid hats that men used to wear golfing. He decided he needed a more grown man hat instead of the baseball caps he has worn for decades. All I have to say is I like it. His hat is uber sexy. He picked a winner of a hat. I have discovered it is called a “Ben Hogan”, after the famous Ben Hogan World Champion Golfer. He can wear it with a t-shirt and jeans and it gives a little bit of manliness to his casual outfits. I’m sold on it.
My grandfather used to wear a fedora, not a formal dressy fedora but a baby blue cotton fedora that old Italian yankees wear on vacation in Flor-i-da (yankees pronounce the I in Florida that’s how we know you are a tourist and not a native…FYI, it sounds awful with the I pronounced). I hope my husband tries one of those on, too. They bring back good memories. He has a good head for hats.
My dad NEVER wore hats except for one of those hunting hats with the ear flaps…because he’s a hunter…yeah, boo and hiss all you want. I bet you wouldn’t dare boo at him when he’s holding his shotgun. My advice is don’t try it. Needless to say, I would associate a hunters hat with him.
I am glad to see Men’s Fashion opening up men to hats again. Hats can totally finish off an outfit and add a note of distinction to a man especially if he wears the correct hat for his face and outfit. Hats are manly. Hats are here. Have fun trying them on and I hope you take one home.
