Do you wear your hat??

22 posts in this topic

My wife thinks i'm crazy for wearing my tri-corn around the house almost daily. If i'm home I have it on most of the time. So I was woundering how often the rest of you wear your tri corns, scarfs, what have you. Am I really just crazy??? ;)

Everytime I am Drinkin (At home on weekends) or out in someones field building them a drainfield for thier septic system., so I actually wear my doo-rag and tricorn quite a bit. I have worn it to Disney land., and the Gasparilla fest as well., and will be wearing it in April and part of May in the Philippines about town island to island as well as on the dive boats.

Personally I wish more people would wear them back into popularity again!

Usually only at events. Sometimes when I had a bit to much to drink and theres been a long time in between events, I'll throw it on and fire off the cannon.

I work in a leather shop and made both my tricorne and vest out of leather, so I get to wear em on a daily basis and man does it increase leather sales.

I used to wear a Fedora a lot - back when I wore a suit regularly. But I always felt it was unseemly to wear it indoors unless on your way to some place. I'm not sure where I got that idea from to be honest.

When I get mine in two weeks(ish), you bet I'll be wearing it all over. Home, shopping, everywhere. :)

Mission, it's a good manners thing. Wearing a hat indoors is simply bad manners - it gives your guests or hosts the impression you want to leave.

I too used to wear a fedora a lot (and don't it look sharp with a suit?!). Either that or a bush hat. People took the micky until it rained. These days it tends to me a straw panama in hot weather and a bush hat in bad.

That makes sense. I'm sure I read it somewhere when I started wearing hats regularly - probably the reason I did it.

It do, it do. For the longest time I wanted a navy fedora, but never found one. So I wore my black fedora with navy suits. It looked somewhat better than they grey and far better than the brown. Jeeves would have approved.

Also...I just purchased my first set of boots for my now almost done attire. I bought a set of the Big Bell Custom Swashbucklers from CA boots, does anyone have any boots from this company, and if so, are they all they are cracked up to be????

I don't know if it started in the military, but covers come off when you go inside.

Actually, if you're bearing arms (in an official military capacity), the hat stays on.

ISTR reading somewhere that the custom of doffing one's hat indoors and as a polite greeting originated during the late 17th or early 18th century, and had something to do with the wigs in fashion at the time.

Actually, still trying to find a hat I really like. I've got the cavalier-type, which has since become just a wide-brim (I lost the pin one day and the shape went away, but I'm beginning to prefer it as-is).

I do tend to wear my scarf or a bandanna quite a bit, but that's mostly to keep m'poor baldin' skull warm in winter and un-sunburned in summer...

OK, is it just me, or does any else hear Tom Jones singing "You Can Keep Your Hat On" whenever I see this thread?

Hat be damned, but keep those boots on .... Grrrrrrrrr! :ph34r:

Actually, aside from wearing it when I'm at home on my computer in the coldest room of the house, by myself, I imagined I'd wear it to all my activities, not at them.
