I need a hat 
24th-Oct-2007 11:11 am
I need a hat, something I can wear in rainy weather that hopfully won't mush down my hair much. A top hat or bowler would technically work, but I'm not sure they are much "me". They are cool hats, but I think I'd look a dork in one of these:

I also really dig Russian fur Coussack hats:

But it seems it'd mush my hair pretty badly.  Honestly, its not that ANYTHING changes my hairs shape, its just that its painful to me to have my spikes turned in on themselves!

I know at least ONE of you is gunna say "leather flight helmet!" but, um, no, Magdalene would rip my throat out, and OH MY GOD THE hat head!

Anyway, I need hat suggestions.

I have a very nice distressed brown leather fedora, but I look too Indiana Jones in that thing...I mean, I wore it to Disneyland once, and with MY clothes, people thought I WAS Indiana Jones! Kids asked me for autographs and shit.

Hmmmm well honestly as beautiful as you face is and your voice, I really don't think it matters too much which one of these is on your head so long as it provides you with good cover from the rain. But seeing some of the things you wear I kind of like the Bowler the best, I really don't see the other two fitting much when I picture riding on that cool bike I last commented on :). Any way good luck with finding a hat that you will enjoy wearing, and yes you are right I was going to say the flight helmet I love that thing * wild giggles * ~~~~~~~

Some of those Military "castro" hats can be kinda cool. They usually come in blacks and greens and are canvas so if you scotch guard them they will keep you totally dry...plus the bill keeps glare out of your eyes. Since they are a little pill boxy up top...they shouldn't smash your hair down too much...

Also I got myself a mens wool fedora the other day...I love it...warm and comfy...that also might be worth a try...

Ooh! That was the other one I was thinking of...

A dearstalker...then you could go all sherlock holmes with your pipe.

That would be awesome...and a little too hot for me...so I promise to stay away and not oogle your goodies if you do get one!

Cause Kristina would hurt me.

Russian winter hats are awesome, I used to wear one to clubs during winter, but they really do mush your hair.

How about a WW1 infantry helmet? (of the country of your choice)

That Russian hat looks way more Robert than those other hats.

I caution against a top hat. They are not very wind resistant and tend to blow off your head more than is reasonable.

Consider a bowler cap, a shorter brimmed fedora, or even a synthetic newsie cap.

Minnetonka Hats makes a lovely "crushable" Outback Hat in several kinds of leather, the only hat you'll ever need. (Retails around $40, waterproof, and will last the rest of your life.)

I love the Russian fur hats, but I've discovered that all of the ones that I've found are REALLY small. I mean, I know I have a normal/small sized head, but they squish my ears badly. So I think they would also squish your hair.
