....see what? I don't think anyone in the hats forum is discussing anything other than a hat wiki. If the other sections of the lounge want to participate, they can, that's the beauty of the wiki format. But a hat wiki will not be left wanting for lack of a leather jacket section. I think @Frunobulax 's suggestion of starting with major brand histories is the right way to go. It provides a solid foundation to bounce off of, and there will be the easiest to find authoritative resources for. Sure, none of this is in dispute. Again, I would argue that this does serve an immense purpose. As a system of cataloging information, does it make more sense to have one page which links to several sub-topics, or five different threads with thousands of posts each (Dating a Stetson by size tag; dating a Stetson by liner; Stetson Quality 'think tank'"; Stetson ads, etc, etc)?
