Which of these hats look ok/which don't?

I could use some foo help - I have a bunch of fedoras and was thinking of selling a couple, but not sure which ones look best and should be keepers.

Any thoughts?

The one that you added 2 pieces of felt in the band. But I wouldn't of known it fit big if you didn't say anything. It does look good on you. Sell the one that don't fit right.

Keep them all. You have a hat for every day of the month, with a couple in reserve if something should happen.

Keep #1, #2, #3

The rest are up to you, but I think these look the best. Keep in mind that I'm no fashion expert, though.

no fashion expertism necessary, just honest opinions.


and so far the consensus is:

some of you prefer the wide.

some of you prefer the narrow

some like the dark felt, some the light

I am an ugly hat model with a nice beard

bad juju will be mine if I sell.

Add to this the fact that I am too lazy to sell....so screw it, I'm keeping them all.



thanks to all who looked.
