One Man’s Fedora

Hartford York Hats - Men's Borsalino Hemp Fedora - The Sicilian Fedora

In his blog David McCreath, a web developer who lives in Anchorage, Alaska, asks the question currently reverberating around the country:

Can a well-dressed, semi-fashionable man…wear something like a fedora as part of his everyday outfit successfully?

Seems that David loves fedoras (as do all real men) but is worried about not appearing natural in one. He says: I’m not trying to make statement or be “out there”; I just want a nice hat.

What I usually tell guys who are a little hesitant about moving from baseball caps to a more sophisticated look is to start by simply wearing a casual straw fedora to the beach or outdoor concert in the park. You’ll fit in with everyone else and (more importantly) you’ll start getting comfortable with your new look.

Once you’ve conquered the straw, move on to one of the less formal fur or wool felt fedoras – especially apropos come the cooler, wet days of autumn.

Basically, dress for the weather initially — pretty soon, you’ll be so comfortable in hats that you’ll be wearing them without second-guessing yourself and you will feel undressed without one.
