    Doing things outside your norm can be disquieting to the psyche. You could try wearing it around the house first, looking in mirrors occasionally until it becomes more normal to you.

    Aha, believe me I've been wearing it indoors at every opportunity. I'll definitely take it out to town some time soon.

    Took it out today on the windiest day all month but it stayed on nicely, fits like a dream and set my (30s, 40s) outfit off nicely.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how your Fed IVs break in over the coming months.

    I may have posted this elsewhere (although it belongs here), but I did cut down the brim of this hat, and then raise the front pinch, both 1/8 inch. These two small changes made all the difference. The hat is now 'wearable.'

    How much did you trim off the brim? The proportions look great.

    Thank you. 1/8 off of the brim, and 1/8 added to crown height.

    Looks great! You know how to wear stingies and pork pies, but larger proportion fedoras look good on you too.

    Okay, a question.

    The hat does look great. But it appears to be navy blue with a lighter blue ribbon. Fed IVs don't come in blue. What color is this hat?

    Thanks! Actually the hat is black with a grey ribbon. I got it used, so I don't know if it's the original ribbon or how old the hat is. I'll get better pics and post them.

    I have a Stylemaster in navy, and I have to think that the Fed IV would look great in that color. I’m just sayin’.
