A nice hat can really add some panache to a suit or casual look.
(One of the posts that no doubt sparked this good-idea-thread commented on the fact that suggesting $500 panama hats isn't realistic for some guys ... or words to that effect.)
I find that wearing hats nowadays ... and by 'hats' I mean brimmed 'dress' hats like fedoras and so forth, not baseball caps, floppy Tilley Endurable sun hats and so forth ... is so uncommon that simply wearing any hat bumps you up into the stratosphere, style-wise. It needn't be an expensive hat, a custom-made hat, a "quality" hat ... fifty bucks and you are golden. Heck, I saw some summer-dress hats for sale the other day ... some I could have picked up for under $10 ... the fit was a bit off, so no-deal, but I was thaaaat close.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
