I have long believed that the hats need a resurgence. Not just any hats, but manly elegant hats. Baseball caps and infantry caps are everywhere. But the elegant hat is a thing of beauty and must be thoughtfully decided upon.

For many years I collected baseball caps. But, as I have matured so have my tastes in hats. Baseball hats are good for going to the game. But, what if you wear suits more often that you get the chance to go to the game? What’s appropriate then for the aging and slightly thinning hair on the┬áman’s head?

This conundrum stirred me to learn something about different styles of hats. I learned about Fedoras, Pork Pies, Derbies, Top Hats, etc…

I currently have a a brown leather Fedora – think Humphrey Bogart. I’m thinking of adding another fine hat. I’m leaning towards a Newsboy or Ivy Cap.

Here’s a good place to learn about different styles of hats. Here’s an interesting article regarding the history of hats.
