    Humm.....sadly I would have to guess he would never be on the Lounge. I say this as if he was, I'd welcome him and then start to see if I would be able to reason with him to turn his life around, and to hope he could understand that "good" is a far stronger place for the Human race, then "bad". Lord knows we sure have enough "bad" around the entire world. Not sure he looks very good in a Fedora? My Husband thinks Ol' Kim, would look better in handcuffs!

    Oh, man, that would be a fun guessing game. You know, all we need are the wealthy North Korean elites coming in and elevating hat prices even further. ;)

    Are we even allowed to trade hats with North Korea?

    Unfortunately behind a paywall...

    Edit: Opening in Chrome Incognito got me to the article.

    Double Edit: Yup a good and fair article. I think your impression is the same as mine, Kao. I also disagree with the advise not to cock your hat. It doesn't have to be drastic, and I think on most folks, the high angle cock looks "affected," but all men can look good with a little "hattitude."

    I love the full traditional dressage look though it does not suit me. Personally despite the chance of serious head injuries I think it should be a choice. Next on the list will be the Spanish riding hat(Sombrero) and Rodeo western styles(Cowboy hats to the layman) will all come under health and saftey.

    Next is removing the human and leave the horse alone doing all jumps.
    And after that, it looses it's interest and become a pointless sport.

    The Strange Properties and Histories of the Magic Hat


    On wishing hats, top hats, the Helm of Death, and other mystical headwear.

    A telling aspect of the magic hat, as a physical thing, is that its form is often mundane, appearing in the shape of a traveler’s or laborer’s hat, such as a cap or a simple fedora. Described as a “coarse felt hat” in an English play about a wishing hat published at the turn of the seventeenth century, and in a nineteenth-century Grimm’s fairy tale as a “little old worn-out hat” that “has strange properties,” it is similarly defined in many stories.

    The magic hat’s association with the commonplace has continued into modern times. For example, the top hat used in the magician’s show, though linked with the wealthy, was a style worn by many men and women who lived on the lowest rungs of the class system. The Harry Potter Sorting Hat, so probing that “there’s nothing hidden in your head / The Sorting Hat can’t see,” was an old, bent “pointed wizard’s hat” that was “patched…frayed and extremely dirty.” The sacred hat, too, in many cultures has been based, like the magic hat, on the commonplace.

    A cap, as a hat form, is one of the oldest types of headwear. The etymological root of the word cap, as historian Beverly Chico plausibly suggests in her encyclopedia of hats, comes from the Germanic haet, meaning “hut,” and is connected to the Belgic Briton word cappan, meaning “wattle huts or cabins.” In these meanings, she sees the cap as a covering akin to architecture.
