    Yeah Vicious posted a couple looks with hats a couple weeks ago and while it didn't look awful, I found myself saying "why?" both times. Like I said, just not a hat person.

    Never posted before (I've been creeping a while), but this was just too experimental to not get feedback. I'm not totally confident the shoes OR shirt go with the pants, nor how I feel about the 2-sided coloring of the belt, but I wore it anyway today.

    Shoes: AE Pierpont
    Pants: KC Reaction
    Shirt: E Zegna (thrifted for $4, otherwise probably wouldn't have picked up this color or two pockets, no doubt needs some tailoring)
    Belt: AE Smith

    LOL, what a douchey bunch we all are then. Haha!

    BB, as you said, you got a hat for more of a purpose/protection than for style. Priorities, dude. Like others have said, the Groucho face thing makes it tough to judge, but I respect your anonymity. Maybe try another pic with a simpler disguise, maybe a blur or something? It looks like the brim is a little misshapen, but again tough to really tell.

    I really think for your trip, you might want to go full-on Panama (wider brim).

    And remember fellas, if this were 50+ years ago, we'd be thought of as douches for NOT wearing a hat.

    Robbo, yeah, I'm sending it back -- and opting for the full Panama experience. When it shows up, I'm going full David Lee Roth on this hat -- "Panama--a!"

    LOL, yeah and some @$$less chaps? Or was that Prince? Probably both. If you go that route please skip the WIWT pic. Puh-lease.

    I personally like everything but the shirt. I'm not sure if its the color (as you mentioned) or the double pockets (which you also mentioned) but something is throwing it off from everything else. I'm digging those shoes though. As a fellow noob to posting let me before the first to welcome you.

    For me, I think the trouble you're having with the outfit is the mix of utilitarian (I believe that's what would be called a work shirt/webbed belt) and business/business casual (fairly sleek pants/shoes).

    I think the color palette is fine, but the shirt would look better in a more casual context (and probably the belt too).

    I'm not much further along on the sartorial scale though, so maybe some of the elders will chime in.

    I like the pants a lot. Usually linen pants don't fit so well (kinda harem-y), but these fit you great. Well done.

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?
    I agree that a wider brim will look and perform better. To shape it, you pretty much just have to manhandle it - this one looks kind of f'd up, though. If it's fairly stiff, you can gently apply some steam, them shape it.

    Very nicely done.
