    Have yet to see a woman in a baseball hat that does it for me, though. Even my own wife, who I normally have a rabid case of the 'hots' for....

    Well, a vintage publicity glamour shot is one thing. The vintage middle class reality can be quite another.

    Case in point; here's my mother on Easter, 1947, just after I was born holding me.

    Jim, that is a wonderful photo. I love your mother's suit, I adore her hat and that car in the background is to die for. Shame about the baby, but three out of four's not bad. Seriously my friend, that photo is of a lost time, a time worth recording and remembering.

    Er, excuse me, young lady. Do I recall a recent post of a rather photogenic beret, with an equally photogenic model wearing it?

    I adore women in hats, be it wide brimmed,
    to the smallest fascinator,

    a woman in a hat graces her femininity, long may she do so. Except Princess Beatrice.
    Anybody recognise the ladies?

  6. Yes, I like women in hats, but, just as with men, it's got to be the right woman in the right hat (or the right hat on the right woman).

    Nice hat dear, well I love it.

  8. Since I never leave the home without donning some form of headwear, I absolutely love it when ladies wear hats! I hate baseball caps though, on either gender.

    I think many men like women in hats, but don't like sitting behind them at the cinema (now as in the golden era).

    My second to last ex-girlfriend regularly wore hats - mostly a beret - and my recent ex wore hats too, including a lovely plum-coloured cloche hat.

    Maybe if I can get with a girl who isn't a hat-wearer she might not become an ex this time.

  10. My grandmother looks mighty fine in this hat, circa 1943. My step-grandfather was posted to Ohio during the war with the Royal Air Force, and my grandmum and uncle George spent a lot of time in NYC.

  11. I have to say Men appreciate most Women's Hats. In fact most of the Hats I own have been picked out or purchased by my Husband.
  12. That picture sure does bring back memories. My Mom (93 years old) still has a few hats very similar to the one your Grandmother is wearing in the picture.

  13. Say, are those two Ladies part of that famous Train Robber Gang from the outside of London ? (just teasing).

    Gangster's molls, what a wonderful image. The first lady is a modern day songbird name of Caro Emerald, listen to her music, it has a kind of Gypsy Jazz resonance:

    The second lady is more famous for getting her kit off.
    She is of course: Dita Von Teese.

    Is there only one man in the world, who can hate this, for real??

  16. This looks like a mixed rugby team in the Black Shirt League...

  19. What I find to be attractive women look best to me, hat-wise, in a classically-styled men's fedora or an unstructured ball cap with a well-curved bill.
  20. The redhead's whole look is perfect. Nothing overpowers anything else, and that hat suits her to a T.
