Like Arlo I was not comfortable with hats until I reached an age. Now I have five of them, all bought by daughters. Three are collapsible, handy for travel.
I wear a fedora every time I leave the house. It is rabbit skin and was $245, but worth every dime. I get nothing but compliments. Even when I take it off when entering a friend or relative’s home, everyone tells me “No, keep it on.”
If you’re gonna dig, you might as well look like an archaeologist.
I was giving a Indiana Jones hat for Christmas many years ago. Unfortunately at the time i weighed around two hundred and twenty five pounds. Now i’m at about one seventy and the hat doesn’t fit anymore. Who knew you would lose weight in your head.
Husband wears baseball type caps and only wears a hat when doing a reenactment when he wears a tricorner hat – he has a black one and a grey-beige one.
I have 2 fedoras that I wear in the winter sometimes. I love their style.
Because of the hat, Arlo should have said, “It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage.”
Hats on to Arlo.
I have always liked when men wore hats. They always looked sophisticated.
I’m sure all those dead leaves will appreciate it.
And in Ted’s cartoon today, everyone’s wearing a hat. Coincidence?
I have a 1944 Canadian army beret that I bought at a used book store back in my collage days. Didn’t wear it much until lately. Love that beret. We grown into the things.
My wife has wanted to write two murder mysteries, “When Men Wore Hats” and the sequel, “When Women Wore Gloves.”
I have the giant Indiana Jones knife. My cowboy hat works well with it.
Have about 4 black fedoras and two tan. In a couple of weeks. I’ll swap them out for my Panamas.
I have one of those. I bought it to wear when mowing my lawn. Keeps the sun out of my eyes and cuts down on the glare through my sunglasses.
I have a very nice Hebrides wool Irish style walking hat I wear occasionally in the Winter. Maybe it’s an “old man” thing, but I enjoy wearing it. On a side note, when I turned 70 my brother bought me a pair of suspenders saying I was now old enough to wear them.
As long as you don’t leave the yard.
Seriously, get a length of velvet ribbon, a bit bigger than the circumference of the inside of the hat, and baste it around the hat band. Pull the thread gently until the hat fits, then end it off. (Someone who sews will understand what I mean). I got this tip from someone who made hats.
Yard work. The bunion on the sole of mankind.
I kept my late husband’s fedora. Maybe I’ll try wearing it.

Atta boy, Tiger……grrrrrr!
my dad had a black bever skin one, wonderful hat. My daughter looked adorable in it when she was 4. But nothing last forever. Hubby loves his crushable Stetsons.
the comment reminds me of the Red Hat Ladies. Basically they get together just for grins and giggles and they all wear red hats, because they can. You used to have to be at least 50 to join. At 45 you could wear a pink hat.
Tomorrow we’ll see Arlo in short pants, cowboy boots and a long sleeve sweater…
My mom was a first-grade teacher for over 30 years. She had quite the collection of straw hats she wore for play-ground duty. Finally, after retirement she decided to get rid of most of them in a garage sale. One lady couldn’t help but exclaim, “How cute! Antique straw hats!” Ever see anyone get tossed out of a garage sale?
Is Janis mocking golfers, or just Arlo?
My Dad would never wear a hat. He spent alot of time in the mornings in front of the mirror getting his hair perfect. He did use hairspray. I think You’re So Vain was written for him.
“I’ve reached the age when I don’t care what other people think”— well, better late than never. Some of us felt that way in high school, and have lead very happy lives ever since.
Originally a woman’s hat. Per wikipedia: The term fedora was in use as early as 1891. Its popularity soared, and eventually it eclipsed the similar-looking homburg.2 The word fedora comes from the title of an 1882 play by dramatist Victorien Sardou, Fédora, which was written for Sarah Bernhardt.10 The play was first performed in the United States in 1889. Bernhardt played Princess Fédora Romazoff, the heroine of the play. During the play, Bernhardt – a noted cross-dresser – wore a center-creased, soft brimmed hat. The hat was fashionable for women, and the women’s rights movement adopted it as a symbol.1112 After Edward, Prince of Wales (later the Duke of Windsor) started to wear them in 1924, it became popular among men for its stylishness and its ability to protect the wearer’s head from the wind and weather.
My dad always wore a hat. He was of the Greatest Generation. He got to the point of leaving it in every restaurant etc. that they visited. His 2nd wife put an end to it!
I’m reading comments from the “girls” here today about wearing hats but all I can hear is Joe Cocker in my ear. You can leave your hat on……….
Worn mine for decades! My teen son has one he wears everyday and people LOVE it on him!
Indy didn’t look ridiculous.
Arlo…. Who cares?!
♪ But teach me Tiger or I’ll teach you
Fedoras are classic, timeless and “da bomb” for current generations! I still have mine from the first Indiana Jones movie!❤️
Good attitude. I don’t care what anyone thinks of me except those I care about or love
