    I've picked up several hats over the last few weeks. I'd like some opinions on which ones fit my face so to speak. Hopefully yall won't mind seeing some repeat pics!

    They all look fine, but if I have to pick one I'll go with the CD.

    I think you look best in thd hats with taller crowns: Fed IV's and Camp Draft.

    I agree with Fed, the taller crowns work well with your overall look. They are all great, you need more though.

    I agree that the bigger crowns work best for you....I vote for the two Akubras......but the other two work well too.

    I personally think the Caxton looks best on you

    They all look fantastic ... but that one seems to fit your overall stature and photographic disposition best .

  11. I vote Caxton first, CD second. Keep in mind that with fedoras the thin ribbon is generally thought to look more casual than a wide ribbon. There was a running joke here for a while about it not being proper to wear a wide ribbon with just a casual tee shirt.

    CD was my preferred. For some reason I found the crown on the Indy Style Fed just a bit too tall, so I would give that one last place if it was a straight ranking response. All the others are good.

    Wait. You picked up "several" hats in the past few weeks? "Which looks best?" They all look good!
    I hope to god you wear them all. Then you decide which looks the best, whenever you want to wear it, with whatever you want to wear with it. Wear it more, wear it less...

    Hi there,

    @fish1534

    No stingy or short brims, no porkpies, If I were you I will get a Fed IV in Moonstone Gray/Tawny or a Campdraft in Moonstone/Silverbelly or Tawny.

    Please BE ADVISED this hooby is highly addictive !!!

    So you might end up getting a couple each to start your hat collection.

    He is indeed, maybe @ryan_289 should send some picks ridding a white horse and screaming Hi Ho Silver !!!! With William Tell Overture sounding in the background !!

    Anyway, I still believe his best look is the Cowboy Silverbelly hat !!

    I really wish I could retire and live in a ranch outside of any city....
