    Ok, so my hat came in -- what do you all think? I think I look more douchey than Megadork in this one, which is ok (http://putthison.com/post/365446401/hatsdouchesanddorks), but I might return it anyway because I think I look pretty weird in it. But that might just be me. Any critiques? Look too small? It feels a bit snug, but not restrictive. Also, how does one shape a brim?

    Honestly? It hard for me to judge the hat with that goofy glasses pic over your face. :-)

    Regarding the brim, some hats will have a wire embedded in the rim. Others will be floppy. If it has a wire rim, just shape it. If it's floppy , you can try steaming.

    I'd pass on the hat. Most people don't look great in hats in my opinion though.

    I agree with your assessment -- the issue is that I'm traveling to a place where I should often be wearing a hat when outdoors. Knowing that, would you think this is as good as it gets? Or should I get something else instead?

    And Alan, sorry about the glasses, but... I'm not going there yet.

    BB - It's hard to tell with the goofy face about how that hat looks on you. The hat I posted a few days ago doesn't have a wire in it, but the brim is naturally shaped that way so I didn't have to do anything. I agree with you about the douchey factor of it. Despite several people saying it looks good, I still feel like a douche when wearing it. I think it's just the stigma that some hats carry nowadays.

    If you're going somewhere that requires a hat, I don't think that should be the one. I have fair skin myself (and was born/lived in Florida until 3 weeks ago) and the brim is too small to actually be effective IMO. Maybe a Panama hat (I think that's what they're called), which has a brim that will actually keep the sun off of your face/ears/neck.
