Hello all, just wanted to introduce myself - I happened across this website looking for fedoras, and my was I impressed. A whole community of folks who are into the same thing! I also like suits, 1920's-1940's culture... go swing dancing and cocktail lounging from time to time. I also enjoy the occastional drink and cigar. At this point, I don't own a *real* fedora (one of either vintage or bespoke quality). Right now, I just have a Burlington Coat factory special (a whole $20, LOL) I'm saving up to buy a quality one. I am fortunate that I live in Detroit, Michigan - there are several haberdashery shops to choose from (my regards to African American culture...they have kept hats alive in this area). I will likely buy a fedora locally, or on the Internet. I am most attracted to the "Bogart" style of fedora. It seems that a dark-grey colored lid would be the most versatile...would you all agree? At this point, I'm still trying to also "grow the balls" to wear a fedora out in public. I see them more often now on younger gents, such as myself (I'm 27). I work part-time at the mall (Banana Republic), and I've seen guys come in with fedoras on occasionally. I agree with previous posts that state that good style never dies, and that individuality sets us apart from the crowd. It's great to see some younger guys on this forum, as it shows that we're not alone. Fedoras are for us all, young and old!!
