Why don't men wear hats anymore?

My sons look great in hats! Here are the children, gathered in the parlor [Image: laff.gif]:

The top hat trumps the fedora any day of the week. I've also wanted to get a sideways bicorne like Napoleon Bonaparte's, but I haven't found any stores who sell that style anymore.


But really, hats are no longer practical unless you live in a really cold environment. I don't wear hats on a daily basis because all they do is mess up my hair and make me go prematurely bald. And even when I do go bald, I'll take wigs over hats. Particularly the powdered kind.

10K, I think you might be the only man today who could pull off wearing that hat.

I tend to wear one of these quite a bit during the summer.  The only difference is that mine is Mossy Oak camo, instead of DPM:

Suits are affected and a sign of a culture with too much time on its hands to care about silly things like the etiquette of dress, which is a cheap secular imitation of modesty.
Ditto. Now where did I leave my frock coat and knickers?

I wear a fedora occasionally, but I'm old enough to pull it off. Otherwise, I wear a broad-brimmed hat in the summer, because the sun is brutal where I live.
