I read a line in a post that said buying a new hat today is a waste of money, that one should either buy vintage or custom. I have been buying and wearing hats for the past 20+ years, started with a Dobbs, have some CT. Crushers and Baileys and just got a Borsalino cap....I like nice things but wonder about the above statement. I saw a Stetson recently that I thought was a great looking fedora, I favor lower crowns that on some hats and this one had the look I generally favor....so is it snobbery (no offense here), or good sense to buy custom or vintage? I am into high end guitars and bicycles as well and find that if one is careful you can find new better or at least as good as vintage, I would hope it would be the same with hats. I also know that for many it does get to become a passion and I will probably not reach that level, I buy what I like, what I feel looks good on me, not that label inside, it is about the look....any help understanding a bit more would be very appreciated.
