    Am I the only one who wears top hats on a common basis? Know one else wears them when strolling about town?

    They're maybe a little TOO vintage for most folks on this list :-)

    I'm surprised so few people wear top hats on a website called the fedoralounge? You can't wear a fedora to a formal event.

    A top hat is a niche item within the community of hatwearers.
    You can probably count the number of Lounge members on one hand who attend formal events.
    I had a Panamabob straw fedora that took over a year to sell at the Lounge. You might need to give it more than a day.

    I am here to heartily recommend owning a top hat. I think it's just like any other hat. At first you think it's just too too. Then you try it, you feel a bit awkward, but after a while you get used to it. Then you start feeling cool.
    You'd be amazed. Peruse Ebay for the different components of white tie formal wear, get yourself the whole regalia, and wear it to any place you'd wear black tie to. As I said, you'll be amazed how nice it feels, and actually how natural it feels. And of you think the women are knocked out by black tie, wait till they get a load of you in white tie!
