    Anybody wear/have/have coming in a nice fedora that's not gray, black, or brown? What colors do you all like and when do you all like to wear them>

    Thought this might be interesting...

    ...or maybe not. lol
  3. One of my first fedora purchases was a Beaver brand homburg. In the picture on Ebay it looked like a nice sandy brown and I missed in the description the word "mustard". Well damn if I did not receive a bright mustard coloured homburg with an orange feather....I called it my Crusty the Clown hat and only wore it in the house until finally donating to Goodwill. I am not sure if any self respecting homeless guy would stoop so low as to wear it in public. That is as close as I have come to a brightly coloured fedora!

  4. I have a couple of German made hats and one American made in green that could be considered bright. I wear them whenever and wherever I feel like a green hat.

    Just today I ordered a blue pork pie.
  6. John The Swede, Eric the Finn here: Tough question from my perspective sir. Check the What Hat Are You Wearing thread as folks wear a bunch of different colored felts. I wear tons of colors. Most fall within the standard variants. A thread like Gannon hats has folks sharing about custom hat felts and may show more color variation than other threads.

    Today I wore, brown, gray and blue-gray. Just for giggles here is an older pic of some custom Gannon hats:

    Here is my red conversion.[​IMG][​IMG]
  8. I have a blue straw with a burgundy ribbon. It's not uber-bright, but definitely not as understated as the rest of my hats.

  9. I have a navy/midnight blue moder Borsalino, along with a couple of hats in a light tan, including an Akubra Campdraft Deluxe in Silverbelly. I'd quite like a burgundy fedora. I wish they did the Federation in a Forest Green too.

    Beautiful ribbon work! Looks like a good Christmas hat.

  11. Probably the brightest I have is a green Selentino Pine. I save it for St. Patties Day. I just unloaded an Air Force Blue western conversion because I never wore it.

    Sent directly from my mind to yours.

  19. I have a few bright/odd colors, but I rarely wear them.

    Green Beaver Brand Homburg:

    Light blue Selentino (Tonak fur felt):

    Darker, but not navy, blue and a gold/yellow/pumpkin. Both also Selentino:


    I posted the last two a few months ago at:

    Aside from Halloween, I don't know where I'd wear a hat that wasn't more a part of the standard palette.

    I don't know how I feel about bright colored hats. They're a little bit impractical unless they're part of a whole ensemble. I have a difficult enough time matching my greys and browns. But I gotta say, when someone pulls off the look, boy do they pull off the look!
