    Thank you! I'd love to buy a fur Homburg but just can't afford it :/ Sad times but I'm hoping to grab a fur hat one day!

    I think it looks great, as well. You'll be less self-conscious bout wearing a hat after a while. I promise. Then you'll graduate to: "Why isn't everybody wearing a hat? They'd look better!"

    I'll be sure to only ever post when I've acquired a new hat :)

  9. Look for symmetry = do some research on the Golden Ratio about what is pleasing to the eye. Most hat suitable postings talk about having your facial shape & hat in symmetry with the brim being the dividing line.
    Cowboy hats throw all that out the window but a fedora is different. The crown height looks a little low compared to your face length. It also could be how you took the photo...

    Will do! Thanks again for this information! Crown height is 4 1/2! Might be the angle of the photo

    Good for you! Don't follow the crowd, lead it! It is refreshing to see a young person with a true sense of style. I commend you.

    And my advice to you is...read read read the threads on this website, not only hats, but vintage clothing as well. This is your one stop shop for your new passion.

    Don't get too hung up on the maths, ratios & such are fine on paper but difficult to follow in real life. If you like a hat, that's all that matters.

    If you like it. Wear it. It looks real good on you.

    Your pic showed up sideways on my screen, though. I flipped it for a better look...

    Yup. It looks good.

    "Graduating" to fur is a loose term I think. I still wear wool occasionally. Just as long as walmart cotton twill trilbies are avoided, I appreciate anyone's hat efforts. Besides, we can't all be lucky enough to have a Stetson St Regis. Keep your eyes peeled in antique shops, thrift stores, etsy and ebay. You may find a nice fur hommy for a lot less than you expect.

    Wearing hats and caps needs some time to get used to. Once time passes by it just feels natural, it's completely normal, specially nowadays that wearing something on your head is seen as rare.
