Response by poster: Here's a photo of my head, if that helps. I apologize for my lack of photogenicness.

Best answer: Newsboy probably wouldn't look too bad.

Fedora. Definitely. Wide enough brim to mitigate the perceived largeness of your head, but not so big that you look like you're trying too hard. Some people hate fedoras and associate them with hipsters. Ignore these people; the fedora is an attractive hat and will continue to be so regardless of passing hipster fashion.

Fedora, seconded. Just not with a pinstripe suit.

LL Cool J has an inverted egg shaped head and he hid that fact underneath a bucket hat for many years.

With that shirt, an Akubra!

Response by poster: Thanks to all for the responses thus far! I'm leaning towards the versatility and casualness of the Newsboy; I'm not sure if I can pull off a full-brimmed hat. Thanks again!

What with the nice warm weather lately, how about a panama?

I find it interesting that we can agree that a certain end of the egg is the top. I had to look at the photo to see what you mean but I suppose you are right. FWIW, I think many people look foolish in hats but your head looks "hat friendly."
