To each his own I guess. [huh]

That's not ugly, that's tragic. If someone was wearing one of those, someone else could walk with a cane and not offend anyone.

On a peacful spring day, it might be appropriate.

No disagreement here. I too think it's yucky ... ;)

It has WAY too much going on for one hat. Too many different weaves, too many different patterns.

I think the hat is pretty cool, but the ribbon kills it for me. Those vents around the side would make it very nice and cool.

It's not that bad, but it's not that good, either. That looks like a good hat for mowing the lawn in.

I suppose it could have its place somewhere, but not in my wardrobe.

The next time I dress up as a racetrack tout I'll need this hat.:eek:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Ugly is also. It brings to mind those experimental planes during world war II that were lash ups of good plane overrun parts.

Why is Stetson making hats like that when they should be making a nice stingy brimmed pork pie for me? :rolleyes: lol

It doesn't look that bad to me, but when I look at it I don't see something that I would wear for style, but something that would keep the sun off when working out in the yard and offer some cooling ventilation. I wouldn't spend 90 bucks for something like that, though.

There is a lot of function in the hat E, this we can agree on. I just don't understand all the chrome and Landau roof. Maybe they could come up with a Stetson Jr. line and then make stylish in one line and stylin' in the other. I know I sound like a Stetson basher in my posts but I own over a dozen both modern and vintage. I work in downtown Philadelphia and frequently am asked if my fedora is a Stetson no matter who the hat maker. Stetson's quality rep and roots still run deep in this city.

Meh, I'd wear my poplin work hats around town before I'd wear that.

Frankenstein hat. Part lawn bowls part safari. You can even see where they stiched the two hats together.

Its an offence to God and nature and shoud be destroyed. Now where's my pitchfork and "angry mob" hat.

I just wonder who they are trying to target with that hat. It seems to me that a $90 hat is a bit steep for the "tweener" crowd, when one can get a Peter Grimm for $40.

But, what do I know? At least it doesn't have portholes like this one. lol

Arrrgggg!!! Then again I wonder if you can get cannons to come out?

I fear the day I see this monstrosity sail past me.

Seriously someone at Bailey is smoking crack.

This would be THE hat to be wearing while passed- out drunk at a neighbor's BBQ, while also wearing an Aloha shirt, Bermuda shorts, and all- rubber flip flops. With socks.

I think that hat would be a great movie prop then. Your description has put a hilarious movie scene in my mind.

Actually, that'd be kind of cool if cannons came out of the thing.

It's the rats tail from the hat band that really brings the whole look together for me. :eusa_doh:

I'd rather point the cannons at that abomination. Put it out of it's misery.

I am trying to develop a more live and let live attitude and remember once on an expedition in New Guinea witnessing one of my porters make a hat from a birds nest (after eating the eggs) and I never said a word. That being said, the things ugly.

Both of those are very ugly hats, they make the fedora/baseball cap combination hat look good.

Things in the future may look very alien to our eyes now but I cant see that either of the hats shown will ever be acceptable to human beings.
