    Feathers in your hatbands?

    What is the general opinion of everyone here on having the nice little tri-feather attached to the band?

    I actually like it...reminds me of the Big-Band era of Swing hehe

    Don't like them. Except on Alpine hats, which I don't wear.

    Just ain't my cup of tea.
    I need another drink. I need a lot of life insurance. I need a vacation. And all I've got is a coat, a hat, and a gun!

    NOPE

    I think feathers make a good looking hat look goofy.

    I am also not a feather fan.
    On my first hat, i bent the feather back so just the side edge poked up out of a fold in the fabric band. On my second one, i just removed it completely.

    It may work on some hats, but I personally don't wear feathers in my hats. It feels a bit "costumy" to me. I guess the exception may be going for the swing/zoot suit look, but I don't dress in zoot suits...once again, too costumy for me. It doesn't fit my personality.

    No feathers for me

    Thus far I have avoided buying a hat with feathers. If I did, I know I'd remove it and somehow that would take away from the "original" aspect of the hat. I know that thought is over the top, and I should not even give it passing consideration, but I have to admit that's the way my mind works!

    Don't like them, a little to pimpish for me.

    Heh, thanks for the swift responses. I was just wondering because one of my fedoras was dedicated to the brief Swing revival here in New Orleans and since that died off didnt know if it needed to be "saved" heh.

    Well I like the feathers (never said they had to be on the hat) so looks like they are gonna be retired to "decorative item" and put on my wall clock XD
