What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

Had one heck of a great two-hat day.

My birthday is next week and my niece’s was last week so we split the difference and spent the day celebrating together today with the family.

First up, I also went with a Melton (mine’s a Melton Ten) for brunch and an afternoon of fun games. I agree with @TimmyV that these are very fine hats!

Then I changed into a suit and a JBS Fifteen for dinner, presents and some
more fun times this evening.

We had such a lovely day - one of my favorite birthdays ever.

Edit:
A better shot of the JBS Fifteen. I didn’t get many photos of it this evening. A wonderful vintage, light-weight felt.

Happy weekend to all.
Nice choices for the birthday celebrations

Approx century old Stetson Select out and about last night.

I picked up this very cool (to me) wrestling themed vintage tie bar/clip. I thought it would make a great hat decoration

Thank you Joe! And I always enjoy seeing they JBS Select of yours. That is one cool hat! I don’t remember seeing the wrestling pin before though - is that new?

Joining the Kneecaps for Nathan crowd

Or maybe the @The Lost Cowboy shorts corral

Along with a Stetson Cumberland Palm for what started out as a sunny day (and now the June Gloom is sneaking back in)

That's a very good look brother! You and @The Shoe could also start a pink shirt palooza. I've got one of my own I could join in with!

Glad to have the shorts support on this thread - that "What Jacket are You Wearing Today" thread had me worried they were gonna come after me with pitchforks for baring my ankles!

When we moved back to the mainland I had to buy long pants and shoes, I hadn't worn either for years

Day two in Nara. We visited the Kasuga Taisha shrine, a world heritage site. I’ll try to get some pictures up in the Fedoras Afield page lat, but for now…Same hats as yesterday.
I called Etsuko’s a Tula yesterday. It’s actually a Maxim.

Mine remains an Akubra Range.

I made a couple of friends amongst them.
Kneecaps for Nathan (that could be the name of a new thread!)

We came across a wedding ceremony and some headwear I don’t think has been seen on the lounge before.

It’s called a Tsunokakushi, literally a horn hider. It is an (in vain) attempt to hide the horns of the demon woman you are marrying, so you will have a quiet, peaceful marriage. Etsuko didn’t bother. Any attempt to hide those horns would also have been in vain!:D
Kasuga Taisha is a great place to contemplate…

I hope he’s contemplating a full brimmed hat. Though I also wore a cheese cutter for the drive to and from Nara. The big brim of the Akubra isn’t ideal for long distance driving. View attachment 621216
Absolutely wonderful photos, Gary. Thanks for sharing them.

As usual, you both look great. Far better than the happy couple in fact :)

With apologies to Charlie Daniels,

People say I'm no good
And crazy as a loon
'Cause I wear felt in the mornin'
I wear straw in the afternoon
Kinda like my old blue pitbull
We like to listen to a baseball game
And I ain't got no money
But I damn sure got a lot of hats!

Playboy and Disney

And I sure do love those lamps
So that's that

New ending, Jim :)
