    Default what kind of hats do you wear?

    I'm still only baseball caps and beanies but have looked into newsboy caps and French beret hats. I think I preferred the beret hats over the newsboys caps. I've looked into cashmere beanies as well. Have you guys tried a cashmere beanie hat?

    Mostly baseball caps.

    I happen to have two. Wear them in the winter. They're very comfortable and keep your head and ears mighty warm.

    In winter and/or colder weather in general, usually with semi-formal, office, smart casual as well as everyday outfits, almost exclusively-as incidentally anticipated with surprising accuracy-newsboy caps and French berets (have worn and chose these ever since making more or less conscious fashion decisions and slowly building up a wardrobe)

    I don't wear hats out of vanity really. I look ridiculous in them and my hair can't survive more than 5 minutes under one.
    The only exception is for when I'm skiing. I wear a woolen hat with a pompon.

    I only suit top hats. I have no idea why but that's the face I was given. Sadly, I have no cause to wear one and the one I have is a little small.

    I occasionally wear a fedora in summer to keep the heat of my head (dark hair) but I look like a bit of a tool.

    I occasionally (very occasionally) wear a fedora or a cowboy hat. Beanies make my head look weird. Cashmere is soft and warm and should be comfortable.

    I have a brown Trilby that I wear whenever I go to the race track--for good luck. I occasionally wear a gray fedora in the winter (straw in the summer).

    My favorite is a Stetson Catera "Gun Club" which is sort of a cross between a cowboy hat and a fedora. Perfect to wear when riding (I know, should always wear a helmet, which I also have). Baseball caps (especially if they say Dodgers or Trojans) although I prefer tweed caps.

    This style is the “cowboy” hat I referred to in my post above (same color too.) Now I know what it’s called. I got it in Death Valley. Good times.

    I wear several hats. They are all fur felt fedoras and a few straw ones. Stetson, Biltmore and Borsalino are the ones I have. I have about 45 hats.

    Cashmere beanie hats are very comfortable. I also like cotton ones. I have a big problem with hats. Every time I enter a store to try a clothing there I leave it. So I stopped buying expensive ones.

    Same here. I like the large berets that flop to one side with plenty of room for hair worn in a clip.

    The only ones anyone should wear...on sunny, rainy or game days: Colorado Avalanche or Denver Broncos ball caps.

    Edit, I have a couple fast drying ball caps designed for hiking and such.

    Another beret wearer in winter, worn with assorted complementary scarves.

    I think both men and women can look very good in a stylish hat and would like to see hats worn more often.

    I used to have a handful of fedoras back in the day but got rid of them.

    I might get a straw hat for the summer that Indy's dad is wearing.
    I'm definitely going to get one of those newsboy hats that Ken mentioned.

    And I need to get some decent baseball caps for those bad hair days.

    I still have a felt Tony Lama cowboy hat. But that's for the rare occasions like a country western club or the rodeo. I'm not wearing that in the streets.

Although mine is not quite that bulky, and is made of (dark) otter fur, rather than the wolf fur of the hat in the photo. I have the matching mukluks and gloves (mittens), but it has to be well below zero to justify wearing those, or I will overheat.

    Otherwise, ball caps pretty much all the time, except for (the rare) more formal occasions --- the sun is almost always low in the sky here in Alaska, and the brims admirably serve their intended function of blocking the sun.

    Baseball caps mostly, cowboy-style hats (not calling them Stetsons unless they are made by Stetson) for when needing a hat with formal/city wear, bicycle caps if needed on two wheels and a Tilley hat as a shooting headwear

    A hat for all occasions! I wear a Tilley hat in the summertime. Excellent sun protection.

    Usually I only wear them when I am active outdoors. In the cold wind, a trapper hat. In the sun and heat, a wide brim straw hat.

    I’ve got to find a replacement straw hat because I misplaced it two years ago. I had had it for years and cannot find one just as good. It had a wonderful weight and tight weave so that it would rarely fly off in a breeze, in spite of its wide brim and lack of any chin strap. If anyone has such a hat and can tell me the brand, it would make my summer.
