DETAILS article: COOL OR TOOL?: THE FEDORA
THE FEDORA IS UBIQUITOUS AGAIN. BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU WEAR IT AT A QUIRKY ANGLE DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE CHANNELING SINATRA ~ Courtney Colavita
Courtney Colavita gives a really good explanation of some things to be aware of when wearing a fedora. She asks the opinions of a few fashion directors, getting their take on the fashion statement. I like their feedback, however I can’t buy into this all the way. But wait… aren’t fedoras cool??!!
Ok, here’s my take on the fedora… I HATE them on ALL GUYS who AREN’T FAMOUS…. and even when famous guys wear them, they still aren’t that great! I will be honest, when they first came back into style a few years ago, I bought one. I only wore it in the morning to grab coffee but even that was a struggle. So why can famous actors & musicians pull off the look? Well…because they can! They have the “Fuck you…I am cool and can pull this off” attitude. Just because Johnny Depp & Jason Mraz can pull it off, doesn’t mean that every “douche bag” who thinks of himself as equally cool should start wearing one. I’m gonna be sick if I see one more guy in a fedora with his Affliction shirt on … I mean WTF! Also, when they sell fedoras at Target, that’s when you know they are not cool anymore! … I love Target btw!
So, if you are “That Guy” then listen up! Let it go … seriously! Especially “That Guy” who has it tilted way to the side … IT’S DONE!! … IT’S OVER!! This again does not include famous people … Sinatra was bad ass wearing a fedora! Is this making any sense? Frank Sinatra can wear a fedora …not Frank Smith the barista at Starbucks! Got it? Good!
On a side note, girls in fedoras … so very hot!!! HAHA

Richard 5 “Hat” Rules:
- No Fedoras! Except famous people.
- No Sweat Marks! If your lid has dried white sweat stains … toss it!
- Do Not Tilt to One Side! Was cool, kind of, a few years back.
- No Tags! This might still be a cool urban thing, but it looks ridiculous!
- Keep it Simple! Over the top logos or any kind of design just looks like you are trying WAY too hard!
Unless your Johnny Depp let it go guys!! Now as a woman and a recently new fedora wearing girl I will say I have had nothing but great compliments!!! I’m hooked! Ladies go for it…men not so much!
