    I'm not talking about the classic baseball hat or thug hat or whatever, though the latter kind of fits in with the discussion, i'm talking about fedoras and alike, whenever I see someone wearing a fedora I rarely think it fits them. I only know of one guy who can pull it off.

    To me it feels like it's just a ploy to make them seem interesting, like when someone's wearing a ushanka indoors when it's perfectly mild, I don't know maybe i'm just thinking about it too much, what does FP think?





    Harrison ford for example can pull off a fedora, because he has a rugged look and is generally a badass, but when a pre-teen or teen who can't grow facial hair wears one, it comes off as them trying to look as interesting as say Harrison ford, which doesn't work out, the comparison is clear, one looks cool, the other looks like a bit of a tosser.

    My friend calls anyone we see at school wearing a fedora a "mad hatter" just for wearing one.

    Depends how you define "mild", as well as how cool the hat looks to the wearer.

    Same thing with aviators. It pisses me off when I see ravers wearing aviators.

    Or fedoras. Ravers and "gangstaz" wearing fedoras are completely fuckwitted.

    people wearing sunglasses indoors or at night bothers me too, it comes off as them trying to look like a cool guy, which in turn does the opposite.

    yeah, I have no problems with a worldly man who's been a few places and maybe killed a man or two wearing one, but when a teenager who can't grow facial hair wears one, it just looks like they're trying to look cool, instead of having the cool to back it up.

    you most likely look like a tool, unless you have rugged looks and don't wear casual clothes with it, nothing kills a fancy hat more than wearing a hoodie with it.

    Don't try to look cool and hip with them on, either you know you look cool, or you don't wear them at all.

    Well I always wear a formal top and good pants when wearing one. But I still probably look like a tool. Maybe thats the look I'm going for? seeing as I usually party with a bunch of gangstuhs.

    like when someone's wearing a ushanka indoors when it's perfectly mild,
    you'd be amazed at how ushankas keep cool, i can wear mine on a sunny day (not that i'd want to) without much discomfort.

    Ushanka's are awesome. i got three.

    Agreed. If you need sunglasses to look cool, you are a twat. Same goes for a hat.

    Edited:

    oh shit that rhymes

    you're a twat
    in a hat
    towel jesus

    that actually doesn't look very good at all. maybe if he had a dark grey suit on, or a black suit with a white vest and shirt

    well no

    not really anyone aside for Harrison ford can wear that hat without looking like a moron
