    I love my hat and changing it’s fascinator to match my outfit. My favorite fascinator to add to my hat has a dragon eye to look back at people. It actually gets compliments.

    Additionally, I want to add that teens are huge marketing targets and where are teens a majority of the day? School, and what do most schools not allow? Hats. They are against most dress codes due to covering people's faces, so I don't think hats will ever go into style.

    Schools (at least where I live) don't allow hats. We all grow up getting used to not wearing them, so when we graduate, we forget we can.

    Yeah the sixteen year old wearing a fedora situation ... yeah the schools I went to growing up didn't allow that. Like they had a weird policy against hats like students got in trouble for wearing them. I think the rumored reasoning was "It's because of the gangs" like ... what gangs? There's no sign of gang activity what so ever in this town like why would gang affiliation be a concern here? And looking back it may have something to do with racism and classism as these schools were very very white and very very middle to upper class, and wearing a hat would make you look less white and poor? Or it could be the islamophobia since that policy really kicked in at all schools in the area post 9/11 and wearing any sort of head wear would signal to mostly the adults that "Oh no you practice a non christian faith, you could be showing yourself as a terrorist we can't have that, take off your hat!" And when I went to college, even during a semester in another country no one cared, like you could wear some absurd ass hat and you may get a comment on it but no one would care. Though the reasons why elementary through high school had that no hat policy was speculation on my part I still don't believe the gang rumors that were allegedly the original reason why kids couldn't wear hats in school.

    I where the same hat every day, i have very sensitive eyes so everywhere i go outside i wear a hat and sunglasses even in the winter, but wearing my hat (its a baseball hat shape with a lake superior logo on it) but its pretty normal for men in their middle ages to wear baseball caps here in Wisconsin because they are balding and dont want to fix thier hair. I always just wear my hat and put my hair in a low bun, but im one of the only girls in my grade that always wears hats like i do

    I've always wondered how it factors in that public schools in the US ban wearing hats altogether. Not sure when that rule was instated, but I (born in the 80s) definitely grew up going to schools where all hats were banned. I actually got in trouble for wearing a headband once. After high school, it took me a long time for it to sink that I could wear hats now and I wasn't going to get in trouble.

    Well, here in Israel hats are still pretty common during the summer months, as they are essential against the sun.
    Also, married religious jewish women, as well as most ultra-religious jewish men, were hats as a religious duty. Add this to Tel-Aviv's hipsters (who were religious hats as a joke), and around here, however, hat-wearing habit still is very much alive and well. :-)

    I wanted to be a hat designer when I was young. I was about 8 years old and had so many drawings and sketches.. when I showed a teacher of mine.. she said hats are not in style anymore and I was wasting my time.. sadly I stoped drawing and designing hats after that. I wish I had stuck with these things when I was young and followed my passions.

    I always thought about this growing up. I love hats and hat fashion and wondered why we never really wore them anymore. Now I live in Japan and I've noticed how so many of the older women wear them on a daily basis, especially during spring/summer. Not just the older women but the younger generations wear them occasionally or at least more often than in the USA. I wish they'd make a bigger comeback in western countries 😭

    I think it's funny how stores always have a hat section though, and how many people seem to buy them. Where do they go? Sad to think they are just thrown in a closet, but I sure as hell do not see as many people wearing them as I seem to see being sold.

    It's a style choice and confidence as well, I think, with hats.

    I'm a hat wearer myself and have been since the very end of my student years, and one thing that made it difficult for me was the expense of good hats. I wore these terrible wool felt fedoras for a while as a student and was always frustrated that they didn't have the shape they did in movies like Casablanca. After university, I moved to London and with my first pay packet I went to Lock & Co and I haven't bought a hat from anywhere else since. I don't think many people are willing to pay that kind of price for something they're not fully committed to. Perhaps this is more a criticism of fast fashion than anything else though...

    You know, I got this idea during quarantine, I have a lot of bracelets, 76, and I’m still making more, when I see my friends again, I will wear ALL my bracelets. (And I usually would meet them at my homeschooling co-op, it closed for COVID, but IF it opens this year, it will probably be around early September since that’s when the semester used to start, early September and early February. So *if* it were to open, it would be relatively warm and I’d be wearing shorts) I would wear one of my short socks and one of my longer socks, and after watching this, i wanna wear a hat too. The idea is to confuse and weird out my friends, and if I can learn French and not forget everything, I might just start talking to them in French. I’m gonna be very weird, and extra. This comment took way too long to type.

    I wouldn't say I got bullied for wearing hats, but they do draw some attention. Also the amount of times I've gotten flack for telling other people they need to wear a hat when we had a hike planned or something. Ugh. (Anyway they overheated and agreed to wear my back-up hat that I always bring because no one listens to me.)
    My hats aren't really a fashion choice so more as utilitarian. I mostly only acquire them when I go somewhere I need a hat and forget a hat so I have to buy another - like beach trips.

    To be fair with this kind of comparison you have to compare corresponding social classes, not the fashion of the upper class from a century ago with the fashion of the working class from a century later. If you compare the kind of headgear a Dark Age peasant or a 18th century farmer would wear, well they are not so disimilar in terms of fanciness and overall material cost than what it is nowadays. A roughed up felt hat, a woolen simple cap, or a medieval hood, are kind of the equivalent of modern baseball caps, bonnets or hoodies. What fell off fashion are the elaborate items from the 19th century, when everything was almost regulated, for the better or the worse. But people still wear hats, not just the same kind of hats.

    I love hats! The 1960's targeted the Baby Boomers because they were the first generation with their own disposable income, and it's been that way ever since. People wear sneakers as every day shoes paying hundreds of dollars for a cheap product with a label vs shoes, this was another marketing ploy directed at young people that became adult footwear.

    My husband got himself a nice, felt stetson in 2015 in the US, and then returned to his home country, Germany. The most notable reactions he told me of were these:
    A small girl in the market asking: "Mom, is that a real cowboy?"
    And another small girl calling out: "Hello, cowboy!"
    In his opinion, it is not about getting used to the world, it's getting the world used to you. You can make something your style by just wearing it regularly.

    When I was young I danced ballet & then briefly modeled. So wearing clothing to affect a certain persona is 2nd nature to me. I'm a happy old crone now & even less concerned with the dictates of fashion. I have a hat collection. Including, but not limited to: a pink Easter bonnet, a large frothy Church/Derby creation, my HuggyBear pimp hat, a bright red fleece # that entertains small children @ the holidays, an amazing black, huge brimmed summer hat, 3 witch's conical hats, multiple straw gardening hats, and 2 waxed canvas, dapper, men's outback style hats for foraging/mushroom hunting. I don't wear a hat every day, but when I do, I'm not boring.

    Haha I once said I look foward to becoming an old little lady, because then I'll be "allowed" to wear hats 😅 Don't think that will change but it just shows how much I actually would like to wear hats! Now at age 41 I feel like I need nobodys permission or approval, I can do whatever, I don't need to wait until I'm 80 😁 But... There are no hats to buy! My head size is also a bit bigger than most ladies hats 😒 So the few that exist (mostly online, hardly any in actual stores) doesn't fit nicely anyway. So... No hats for me. I love love love the fashion from the 50ies and 60ies, the elegant matrons with beautiful hats and gloves that is... Pill box hats and the like especially ❤️ Aw how I wish we could all be elegant like that... That's the only thing I actually like about the winters 😅 The outdoor accessories 😊🥰
