Seems rather ungentlemanly, but to each his own I suppose.

I am unkempt and shabby, so the look suits me. But seriously, I completely understand your opinion. Wearing a hat which has seen as much "wear and tear" as the hats in this thread exhibit isn't a desirable look for everyone. But I appreciate the extremely casual nature of that look, and almost every "defect" tells a story. If I had such a hat I certainly wouldn't wear it with a suit and tie, but for something like a picnic, a backyard barbecue, or a day at the beach, why not?
There was a time in the not so distant past when men most work outdoors and had but one hat worn for protection from the elements. There is a market for new hat that try to look the part
There is definitely a market for artificially distressed hats, but I'm not a fan. I appreciate artistry, but sometimes my practical side wins out and I just can't see damaging a perfectly good hat in that way just so some schmuck with more money than brains can "look the part". It's one thing if a hat earns its "scars" honestly through years of service, but anyone wearing a fake beater is just perpetuating a lie.

Hi, Most hatters sell "distressed" hats. I prefer to do my own distressing. On that subject, I wore my John Wayne Fort Apache hat in the rain at Shiloh military park the day after I walked out of Mike Moore's shop. I haven't done that enough for it to look distressed though.
How about posting a pic of the hat, if you don't mind. I have 3 of his. Would like to see how yours came out.
Hi, it will be a bit, I'm at work. I have a few.....
