Hats

Hello!

My second question here! I absolutely love to wear hats! I think just as every man needs a suit, they need a hat. My question is about the different styles of hats, how formal each of them are, what occasions can I wear them for and signs of quality. I usually wear a Flat Cap for casual events, by casual I would mean jeans/shorts and a t-shirt/shirt. For events where I have to wear a blazer and a tie I usually wear this hybrid hat, imagine a cross between Panama and a Fedora and it’s black. I also wear a straw hat when I’m riding, it’s almost like a Stetson but not completely. When I wear traditional clothes, I’m from Pakistan, I obviously wear traditional hats, like a Qaraqul or a Pakul.

Thank you!

Can a Young Man Wear Avant-Garde Styles?

Hey Antonio! Hope you get to this question sometime soon. My cousin is getting married sometime late this year. This has led to me finally having an excuse to get a proper suit, till now I’ve only needed blazers as I am only 17. My personal style has always been very experimental. I’ve already started thinking about what kind of suit I want to make. I’m really sorry but I have to go against the grain with you here because I don’t want single breasted solid colour suit with notched lapels. I’d really like perhaps a three piece grey Prince of wales check or, for me, a little safer would be a black or navy blue, three piece double breasted.
I’m really not sure what to do. I know the suit I have described, I would wear everywhere as they are more in-tune to my style. I doubt I’ll ever wear a black suit ever, except for a wedding. I’m not sure whether I should go with what’s me or what’s safe. I’m 5’11 and skinny and I love to wear brown shoes! 🙂

On another note, I live in Pakistan and weddings here aren’t one day but usually last upto 3 or more days. I thinking of getting a traditional plain black Sherwani made, similar to the one Quaid-e-Azam would wear. Any thoughts on that? F.Y.I. The Quaid is easily one of my style Icons!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate this!
