    Hi fellow Loungers.

    How do you guys store your hats when not on your head?

    I've been wondering about the best or at least a good way to do this.

    I've seen some of you pack them in plastic, while some have them stored on top of one another on flat racks. Others have them lying around the place like me.

    The problem is, the more hats you acquire, the less space to store them. Especially when you have a small apartment like mine.

    I thought I'd start this new topic so we could inspire and learn from each other.

    I bought this hat stand recently and set it up today. It's my current solution.

    I have another plan of screwing old wine bottle corks on my walls and hanging my hats on them.

    Looking forward to hearing and seeing fellow FL'ers solutions.

    Best hat wishes - Steve[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  6. Most in boxes. Many on hat blocks or stretchers, some on stands, some on hooks and some on each other.

    Some on whatever is handy.

    Boxes would be great if I had them with the hats. Sadly, only two boxes. Both top hats.

    Can you post photos of your hat storages?

    Best buck shot ever!! Well, maybe Yogi wearing Mr. Ranger’s hat would be smarter than the average bear! Sorry!

    D19A637B-3134-4907-BAD7-B65EF4D9AC00.jpeg This is indeed a situation that might easily qualify for a prenuptial codicil. I am blessed with a wife who is both understanding and organized. I have my hats—most of them—in the boxes you see on the photos. Most of the boxes I believe are from the Container Store or BB&Beyond and have visible plastic openings. These see through openings are excellent for seeing the hat and for organizing by style or material. Other hats I’ve kept in their original boxes from VS, Optimo, DelMonico, Worth and Worth and JJ etc. My longsuffering wife has yet to tell me I have too many hats. She has pointed out, on occasion, that I have only one head; which seems to be getting pointier with each passing year.

    Thanks for sharing, Altiori. That looks like a great way of storing hats.

    Congratulations on your understanding wife btw.

    I have all my hats (all 48) in boxes except for the one I pull out to wear and I tend to wear it for a few days....annoying to my wife but....I just toss on an unused table when not on my head. We have a forced air furnace that creates a fair bit of ambient dust in the house. If I stored the hats open on shelving or hat racks the brushing would be continual. I buy boxes at Michaels craft store and cut out cardboard ovals that I tape inside the boxes so I can store the hats crown downward.
