    The 2000s and 2010s produced new crops of hobbyists who at least occasionally wear hats and caps of older styles. It remains to be seen if early-through-mid 20th century hats and caps will become any more popular than they got, after the waves of popularity largely attributable to the hipster fashion movement and television series and films such as Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, and Peaky Blinders (more of a newsboy cap series, but there are fedoras, trilbies, and homburgs around). My advice is to give an older style of hat or cap a try, if that’s what you want to do. They’re around today to certain extents, not just among old timers, but also the younger sets, and during the summer time, straw hats often appear.

      I didn’t think there was anything weird about hats until I went to college and I met a female who thought, unironically, that hats and umbrellas were obnoxious affectations that people wore for fashion purposes (she was from florida so obviously spent her entire life inside a house or a car and LITERALLY never went outside)

      The cultural differences across the US are stronger than you would think, there are actually people who cannot wrap their minds around the concept of wearing a hat because it’s useful

    Why does every /fashion/ thread that discusses any pre 2000s style always devolve into nazi loving/hating shitfest?
    It’s clockwork at this point.

    Literally wear a cowboy hat, bush hat, or baseball cap almost every day if it’s sunny. Even if it’s not for the entire day I bring it because I’m not trying to get cancer boet.

    something about the modern man just makes him look mega onions when wearing any old style of hat
    I can’t put my finger on it, but I feel like you gotta be a chain smoking alcoholic WW1 veteran with undiagnosed PTSD who beats his wife and kids to pull of the look.

      You just have to spend a little time out in the sun. But classic menswear hats also lend themselves to more formal outfits so trying to pair them with a t-shirt and jeans makes it difficult.

    I think we’re moving in the right direction.
    Hats were used when people used public transport for most of their travel and walked the last bit.
    With the car not giving you a lot of space and also driving you right next to your destination (or right into it) people are not exposed to the elements as much so there is less need for protection against it.
    With how climate change is moving along we are slowly getting rid of car dependency and reinvest into trains and riverboats that will fix our carbon footprint and bring hats back.
