That's easy just take one room from floor to ceiling.
I just counted. As of today- I'm up to 22 with one more in the mail.
The sad part is, one room is all I have. Hat boxes stacked everywhere, loose hats stacked two and three deep. I think I need therapy.
at least you have a Room. all I have is a closet!

1 vintage hat.....5 new felt hats..... 2 straws....1 fitted Duke ball cap.
Not including baseball caps and newsboy caps, my count stands at fourteen as of this evening-it could change soon as I'm going to be looking for a new straw tomorrow.
1 Brown felt fedora
1 black felt bowler
1 red (!) top hat
1 fur fedora- actual fur, not felt. Weirdest thing I've ever seen.
All of these, except for the topper, I inherited from my grandpa. I need more hats.
I also have a lot of baseball caps, newsboys, toques visors and driver's caps, because people keep giving them to me- just because I wear SOME hats doesn't mean I'm going to wear ALL hats.
If only counting felt civilian "hats" then I have 3. If adding newsboys, caps, military hats, etc. then probably around 30. I am afraid to count because it might scare me.
Small collection (8)
1 beige rabbit felt fedora with chocolate ribbon custom made in Hungary
1 dark brown ‚ÄôIndy-like‚Äô rabbit felt custom made in Hungary
1 VS Art Fawcett ‚ÄôWall Street‚Äô fedora
1 VS Art Fawcett cream colored fedora
1 Wheat straw 'semi calado' for gardening
1 Cuenca brisa for everyday wear
1 Montecristi ‚ÄôBogey ‚Äôfrom PanamaBob
1 Montecristi ‚ÄôBlanco‚Äô from PanamaBob

I am agonizing over the decision on the felt and need to choose and let Art know. I have it narrowed down to 5 colors (they all look so great)....ARGH!!!!! - Must make up my mind.......:eusa_doh:
More Hats than my Wife has Shoes
The following is a post I made last Fall, It has only gotten worse
"Today will be the 1st Day with temps in the 60's (we missed the 70's), so yesterday I also, desided to make the switch to Felt.
I gathered up my summer hats ( a reasonable number of 8) and started pulling out my stored Felts and then I pulled out the ones I had hid from my wife and then I pulled out the one I had hid from myself........
And as I sat there with Straws to the right of me and Felts to the left of me (and for that matter to the front and rear of me), I Thought, Damn I have way toooooo many Hats!!!!!!!
Then I thought of my Grandfather who wore a Hat everyday and never owned more than 2 of them at a time...
Is there is a Moral here ??
Oh Well, I need to Check on another hat at ebay now. "
I have four of Art's works of art, including one of the ultralight. I also have a panama from Panamabob that Art blocked and finished for me. Then I have two Boralinos, new not vintage, but I do like them both very well. That doesn't include my mistakes that I no longer wear.
