Here are my three most worn hats.

Salomon mountains is most often worn trail running, but occasionally around.

The red Fox’s Market hat has a sentimental story. My grandfather worked at that business in Middletown, Pennsylvania, where my dad grew up. The market has since been purchased and is now called something else. He died in 1986, and gave this hat to me sometime before then. I don’t really remember much of him because I was so young when he passed, but it’s nice to think of him and my grandmother when I wear it.

And last, Ouray Ultras. Earned at the 2018 Ouray 100 mile ultramarathon. Earned as in you get the hat just from signing up, but I finished the race, placing 14th in just under 46 hours. I wear it with pride frequently in real life, for trail running, hiking, adventuring, and so on.

My hat right now: Vintage Penney’s Marathon felt Open Road copy, looks early ‘60s, most likely made by the Lee Hat Co. of Danbury, Connecticut. Marked as “XXX Quality”, not sure of the exact fur used.

@mpukas thanks for setting up this thread... much appreciated... it was on my to-do list but fell off...

I wear a hat all year round - winter for warmth, summer to guard against UV... 

Below is the L'Aronde (the dove) hat made by The Well Dressed Head.  Keith is The Well Dressed Head, based in Australia, specialising in early 20th century hat reproductions.  He's got a shop on Etsy with some superb vintage hats and super materials - definitely worth a squiz.  All hats are hand made, mostly to order, and consequently priced accordingly.  I only have the one but the quality is top notch and worth it..

Not for everyone for sure but it's a favourite of mine.

Details as follows

  • 1920s-pattern French casquette flat cap in vintage multi-toned wool tweed
  • Liner is built from vintage heavyweight cotton
  • Sweatband is Australian leather. A hand-tied 1920s French ribbon finishes off the sweatband.
  • Full leather reinforced visor
  • The crown features a NOS (new old stock) vintage United Carr snap from the early 1940s.
  • It came with a "Cap Keeper" i.e. a custom shaped pillow that lives inside the cap when not being worn to keep it’s shape

Given it comes out in colder weather, I tend to wear it with the Hillside twill scarf.

My favorite hat is a simple navy watch cap I bought ~20 years ago in Seattle's Pacific Place, in a store that doesn't exist anymore and was kinda halfway between Abercrombie and a surplus store. The label says:

CAP, KNIT, WATCH - (100% WOOL) - DLA 100-85-6-0711 - 8405-01-006-1074

It looks like it still has many more years of life inside of it...

i love hats but they don't always love me.

my favourite cap out of several dozen i own is either a '47 brand red sox (the sox logo, not the 'b') or my kapital old man and the sea. unfortunately i have a massive head so regularly need to use a hat stretcher, although even then sometimes it isn't enough.

watch caps, beanies etc are often tricky for me too as material is often an issue as opposed to size. 100% wool is too irritable on my forehead and scalp due to my eczema. i own a buzz one in 100% worsted wool which is completely unwearable, although a 60/40 armorlux and a wtaps in 'coolmax' are tolerable. acrylic is the best on my skin but most of the aforementioned labels avoid it for obvious reasons (lesser heat retention etc).

i wear a buzz or TCB daisy mae on super hot days here to protect my ears and neck. i want something with a wider brim, though. any suggestions?
