Why don't you wear a hat?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Is it because you wear a helmet?  Or is it the same reason you don't wear a helmet? 

 

(I look forward to the the next "Why don't you wear" thread. )

Are we talking baseball or knit?

The same reason I don't wear a helmet.

 

When it's too warm to wear a helmet, it's also too warm to wear a hat.

 

Or is it the other way around? When it gets too warm to wear a hat, it's also too warm to wear a helmet.

Cause it won't fit over my helmet

I can't fit my hat on under the helmet.

Plus, it seems a little silly to cram the pom pom under there.

 

Well, JFK killed it really for men at his inauguration.

Where Did all The Hats Go?

"Unfortunately, these days we pretty much live in a virtually hatless society. It wasn't always so.  Hats were the  staple of the well-dressed woman's wardrobe in the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's and into the 60's.  They have always represented an art form."

A Gentleman and His Hat in an Elevator
* Emily Post's Etiquette (16th Ed)  A gentleman takes off
his hat and holds it in his hand when a lady enters the
elevator in an apartment house or hotel--any building
which can be classified as a dwelling. He puts it on
again in the corridor. A public corridor is like the street,
but an elevator in a hotel or apartment house has the
character of a room in a house and there a gentleman
does not keep his hat on in the presence of ladies.
But in public buildings, such as offices or stores or
buildings which contain neither apartments nor
assembly rooms, the elevator is considered as public a
place as a bus or a trolley car. What is more, the
elevators in such business structures are usually so
crowded that the only room for a man's hat is on his
head!

Apparently, I might be wrong about the JFK and the hat thing!

American men do not wear hats the way they used to, when headgear was considered as necessary as shoes. Hatless has become proper on formal and social occasions. But when did the trend begin?

One popular assumption is that American men stopped wearing hats after John F. Kennedy didn't wear a hat to his inaugural in 1961. But it's not necessarily so, as author Neil Steinberg tells NPR's Scott Simon.

Steinberg, a Chicago Sun-Times columnist, gets to the bottom of the debate over lids with his book Hatless Jack: The President, the Fedora and the History of an American Style.

At roughly 1:45, "If you didn't wear a hat (from pictures of baseball games in the 20's), you were drunk, or had been beaten up, or were an errand boy, there was something wrong with you..."

They mess up my sexy, sexy hair.

I do wear a hat, hand knitted in Nepal, supporting Sherpa wives.

It feels better without one ;)

I do wear a tuque...the proper french canadian winter headwear. A heavyweight version for temps below 15 degrees, a lighter knit style for days above that. And none at all once temps hit the 30ish degree mark.

 

It's great to have choices

Being of the cue ball persuasion I almost always wear a hat of some sort when outside.  Therefore, this question may seem silly to some, but what is with these guys who don't wear a hat, hood, or helmet when it's freakin' cold out (like 20F or less) while they're skiing?  They almost always have rock hard hair that looks like it came out of the 40's.  It can even be snowing, but there they are.

 

I am in complete awe of their ability to do this without loosing their ears to frostbite.  I wish they would put a hat on! I get cold just looking at them.

If your hat was a helmet wouldn't your helmet be your hat ?  Hats are cool but helmets are warmer.

If you think helmets are warmer, than you don't have the right hat.....

True RS

I've got one like this made of rabbit fur.  Eat this PITA!

 

It's actually thick enough to count as a helmet IMHO.

So when there are folks who live on the mountain, does that mean the gondola is like an elevator in an apartment or hotel?

 

I've neglected to remove my helmet^h^h^h^h^h^h hat when riding up gondolas in mixed company.  Am I in big trouble?
