    The Final Federation

    I just pulled the trigger on a Fed IV in carbon - you guys make it look just too cool? As I'm a novice at this I have to admit I'm a bit nervous in the bashing department, but seeing how great a job you both did on yours helps me feel a bit less nervous. Hopefully, I'll gain more confidence in...

    If you could only wear one hat, what color would be ideal?

    I must admit, EliasRDA, that I found myself wearing my brown fedora more and more as it just felt "right". The light grey didn't seem to "work" with the khakis/jeans I wear most often. I'm sure it's just me but the brown lid seemed to coordinate better in the mirror. Of course, the "where's your...

    If you could only wear one hat, what color would be ideal?

    Hello All and thanks for all the great insights! I just wanted to touch base and let you all know what I've finally done: I did what I'm sure you all would've guessed - I went with BOTH of the most common choices here... like any good FLer would. I ordered a brown beaver Raider from Penman and...

    Courage to Wear a Fedora

    Sorry, duplicate post. I guess I'm free enough to still mess up, too, eh? Dan

    Courage to Wear a Fedora

    What can I say? When you're right, you're right, and I know you all are right. I really shouldn't care what others think - and I often felt that I didn't - but I guess I did. Anyhow I'm glad to report that, like many of you, the more I wear my hats, the more I feel comfortable. I'm at a point...

    If you could only wear one hat, what color would be ideal?

    LOL - I love this response as it very quickly summarizes what I so long-windedly (is that a word?) said in my original post! Gentlemen, thanks for all the insight. It looks like grey is trumping brown about 3:1, so that gives me a pretty good feel on which way to go. Again, thanks for taking...

    If you could only wear one hat, what color would be ideal?

    Hello friends. I've been searching around the forum trying to find a thread or response where members share their opinion/rationale on the ideal hat color and can't seem to find it. My guess is there must be something but I'm at a loss where it would be. I also recognize the subjective nature...

    Courage to Wear a Fedora

    Thank you kindly for the sage advice. I have picked up a few fedoras of various styles/colors out of the bay recently and am having fun exploring my "style". Lost out on a bid for an open road, but the fedoras are really growing on me so I think I may just pass on the westerns all together. I...

    Courage to Wear a Fedora

    It's changing for me, and each phase adds to my confidence. For me, it began on doctor's orders. Then I wanted to look good too. And that brought to mind the B+W films from mid-century. So I looked for classic styles among retail offerings. Bought a bunch. And then I became enthusiastic...

    Fedoras afield

    Thanks Lt, RFR, and Viclip for the hatsdirect link. I bookmarked it and will be perusing the site. I think a moonstone deluxe is in the works, but maybe not for a couple of weeks. Hopefully by the time I get it I'll both have made enough posts and figured out how to post pics so you can check it...

    Courage to Wear a Fedora

    Thank you all for your kind replies and sharing of experience. I have to say that I guess I'm getting more "courageous" or just less self-conscious, but lingering in the lounge reading the threads and looking at the pics of members wearing their favorite hat du jour has done wonders for me and...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Wow! That silhouette is perfect - the lines of that dobb are just spectacular. There's something about vintage hats that can't be duplicated and I think your hat, Amplified, serves as an ideal example. I called my wife to have her look and she just rolled her eyes like "you and your hats". Well...

    New Ladies and Gents Step Forward

    Hello to my new friends, I've been lurking and learning about the lounge for about two months now. I'm 47 and only recently started wearing fedoras - at the same time I discovered the lounge in a google search about "how to wear a fedora" or some such thing. Anyhow, I have to say I've been...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Hello Joao, thanks for the info about the pics - that helps a lot. I've noticed - and love - your westerns in this sea of fedoras. To me your full beard and beautiful local - I'm in the middle of farm country, no seas of water, just corn - really just feels "right". You know how to rock your...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Hello Gents, I just wanted to touch base with you all and say "I'm loving the hats!" I have never seen so many wonderful pieces in one place and, being new to this forum and still earning my "sea legs" in hat wearing, seeing all you fine dressed gents rocking the hats fills me with confidence...
