The next post on the Asia and Africa section of Theodore's Royalty and Monarchy Forums will be the 1000th post on that section. Congratulations to the dude who makes it!

Does anybody know where I could get a winter hat of some sort? Preferably one with a wide brim.

I was always under the impression that wearing a hat indoors was considered quite rude. I remove my hat when indoors for that reason -- unless I am at my own home. Then again, I have never really asked anybody about this since, despite my wishes, most are so bereft of any concept of honour and respect that they would not mind either way. Then again, I would be rather surprised if a man such as Jovan were to break such a simple rule of etiquette. Perhaps this rule only applies for private residences ?

By the way, the hat in question is typically a black beret, though I would like to get a red one. Sometimes I wear a flat cap or a Siberian rabbit-fur Mad Bomber.

I am, however, certainly a beret man, or at least one for militaria. The Western 'cowboy hat' is unattractive to me, and so are most XXth c. styles of headwear.

You should be able to find one at the nearest men's store.

Oh there's a whole batch of etiquette for hats. Read Emily Post's 1922 classic, I've incorporated tons of it into my everyday life: http://www.bartleby.com/95/ (Online version of Mrs. Post's classic)

And if you are all feeling very reactionary in terms of hats: http://www.gentlemansemporium.com/index.php

Enjoy some good wears and act abit more formal, let's stop the bad trends...

CTEQR,
Other than Churches (where I remove my hat everytime), when I enter a public building I check for a hat rack/check girl.  If they have either I make use of them.  (Both have became very rare these days)

I'm a bit confused here. What I meant was that I remove my hat upon entering any indoor place, including public ones like pubs.

Oh, my mistake. For some reason I read your post to mean that you always keep your hat on in indoor places.

Check this. Very good price, as well.

I hope this is taken in the spirit of good-natured ribbing.  If it isn't I appologise now, and will delete it upon request.

Jovan, that is not a hat.  It is a doily for your head.

It is taken in the spirit offered. A doily it may be, but out of 100% wool, it's a very warm doily!

And where you live, that is a primary consideration.  Its down in the 40s at night here now.  I'm guessing that would be unseasonably warm for y'all.

Actually, we're having an unseasonably warm fall (except for last Sturday! Windchills around 10 F.), but that would be  warm day. Overnight temperatures have been below freezing for a couple of weeks now.
 
***Edited to add***Last year at this time, we had already had two or three serious snowfalls. This year, so far, just a few flurries.

I think it's safe to say that the venerable bowler hat has become extinct.  I haven't seen one on a persons head in ages.  They looked great on some people, but horrible on others.  Any other venerable hats that seem to have gone the way of the dinosaurs?
