My go-to winter hat for years has been a plain grey knit cap. I was recently informed by a friend, and then another friend who agreed, and then another that the hat makes me look "like a bum," (in their words). I like having warm ears and a warm head, but I'd also like a better winter head covering that doesn't look frumpy and low effort. What's some good head gear that is both warm and relatively fashionable. [more inside]

I was raised with the expectation that men's hats* MUST come off when entering a building.** This does not appear to be true any longer, or at least isn't true for baseball caps. What's the consensus on leaving a baseball cap on or taking it off? For context, I have explained the exceptions to the rules as I was lead to understand them under the cut, and if it matters I am a 30-year-old white guy living in a city, and I'm looking for the casual-hat rules, not the formal-hat rules.

It seems like people go out of their way to hate on people who wear fedoras. Not fedoras specifically, at least not that I have seen, but specifically making snarky remarks about people who wear fedoras. Lena Dunham made a remark in a piece basically insinuating that all you needed to know about an early crush of hers wore a fedora. [more inside]

Hats and Social Class in Pre-Internet England: I recall part of an episode of Are You Being Served where Captain Peacock was castigating another male employee (perhaps Mr Grainger) for wearing a bowler hat to work when bowlers were reserved for managers. Now, we all know Peacock to be stuffy, stodgy, etc., but was this a real thing? We're different styles of hat ever reserved for a particular class?

Please help me: a) procure 2-5 pith helmets (natural straw type), inexpensively; b) procure material to make matching cat ears; c) add cat ears to pith helmets, in "airplane ears" or "listening behind" position, because cat safari is serious business. Found $15/helmet source for (a), but wonder if there's a less expensive way. For (b), I have no real clue - what should I even buy? Very thin chair caning supplies? Tiny willow branches from a nearby tree? Any ideas? [more inside]
I would love to buy this hat for my man and am not sure where to start(crop of image by Joe Jervis at joemygod.blogspot.com) . A magical link to the exact hat in question would completely rock my world, but terms to narrow down my search would be great as well--I don't know the name for that style of hat or how to describe it's appearance. I do have his hat size. Thanks y'all!

My close friend is pregnant (yay!) and I'm a knitter, so I'd like to make her a whole mess 'o' baby stuff. But I also want it to be useful. I don't know anyone else with a baby, so tell me, Internet, what knittable items/garments do new parents really end up using for their infants? [more inside]
What hat should I wear this summer to keep cool without looking like a stereotypical nerd? I've worn fedoras all my life, and I've recently realized it makes me look a bit like Fedora Guy or a stereotype I want to avoid. Unfortunately, summer is coming up and I need to wear something to keep the sun off my head. I've been wearing this black straw fedora, and my dad recently gave me a more traditional Akubra (can't remember the exact model, but this might be close). I've also got a light straw hat and a 'wacky' one with cowboy skin (and a grey flatcap for winter). What should I wear when I plan on being outside for long periods of time? I'm in Sydney, Australia so there will be days when going out hatless isn't really an option
I am looking for recommendations for two course: one in making jewelry and one in making hats in the Boston area. I did note a hat course at the design school, but you have to be enrolled in a degree program. Has anyone taken any courses in the above they could recommend? Thanks!

I have always had a large head. The rest of my body is normal-sized but I always takes the largest size hats. I guess I am looking for some perspective now that I am a bit older on how unusual it is, what are the causes, who else has a large head and how they deal with it. [more inside]

Advice/tips for what to look for in a hat... for a man who looks like a moron in every hat he's ever tried on AND looking for a good place to get a man's hat in Toronto.
I'm looking for a photo of a Wendy's Jazz Cap, or even just first-hand recollections of them. These were apparently some type of multicolored painter's cap sold at Wendy's establishments in the late 80's(possibly 1988ish). There seems to be no trace of their existence online. Phone calls to the Wendy's Customer Service hotline have come back with a "try eBay" response. A few good but ultimately fruitless tries to track one down can be found on the comments to my blog. Any information, photos, or recollections would be very much appreciated.
I want to get my father a hat for his 70th birthday. No, I don't mean one of those awful narrow-brimmed glen plaid affairs that are about as stylish and becoming as toe rubbers. I’m thinking a wide-brimmed fedora made of a good quality gray felt – something like this, and like what "Jack McCoy" sometimes wears on Law & Order (unfortunately can’t find a picture of Sam Waterston in his fedora). I’ve looked in the malls in Toronto and the only suitable hat I could find was $85 plus tax, which is both rather steep for my gift budget and too much to spend on something I am not convinced my mother and I can coax my dad into wearing;-). Does anyone know where (preferably) in Toronto or (plan B) online I can find a less expensive hat (hopefully not over $50) for Dad Swan?

What is this kind of hat called, and what was the "look" that went with it called? Sort of a leather version of a Greek fisherman's cap, sort of reminiscent of SS uniforms. I can remember seeing them worn in the 1970s and 1980s by gay leathermen, gay and straight people at punk shows in Europe, maybe some bikers, too. [more inside]
