Baker Boy Hat and Dark Denim Menswear

The thing is... I like hats. Unlike most other accessories you can incorporate into an outfit, plopping a titfer (which means "tit-for-tat" - cockney rhyming slang for hat) on your head can be the difference between cool and stylish or "Why exactly did I bother dressing today?!"

I've got a pretty big head (so my wife keeps telling me), so hats don't always work for me but I persevere nonetheless, just out of sheer determination to find one that is... perfect. Some blokes can put on anything even vaguely hat-like and carry off the look just fine. >>

For me, this baker boy hat works really well with the denim shirt and chinos. There's an air of the twenties about the look that I like (just ignore the shades and digital watch and you get the idea)! The essence of a good outfit for me is how each piece compliments the other. This isn't to say that there are rules governing what I just said but, hey... it's about what makes you confident and comfortable, isn't it?

All in all I really quite like this look, shame it's just turned cold and damp in Blighty so I probably won't wear this again until next year... ho-hum, never mind.

So, until we meet again in cyberspace: Cheers!

Do you like hats? If so, what type makes you feel confident enough to combine it with a stylish outfit, let me know in the comments!

  1. I do like baseball caps to create the 'American' look - I love the American 'Preppy' look too.

    I still wear baseball caps but not as often as I used to. They're great for keeping the rain off when wearing spectacles and also for keeping the sun from burning the top of my head. I see you've been fortunate to keep your gorgeous locks Silver Londoner aka Keith 'Rapunzel' Summers ;-)

    After discovering a fantastic small sunscreen spray I haven't been wearing caps as much now-a-days.

    I've noticed a big trend for flat caps at the moment. I may have to invest in one soon as a winter head warming fashion item :-)

    1. Hi Roger.. you know, hats are great especially in the winter. They're an outfit accessory AND they keep your head warm.. YES!

      My advice, get a hat and you'll never look back..

      Have a great weekend


  2. Hahaha, the boyfriend is a fathead too, every single hat looks ridiculous on him! :D I love this one and how it looks on you, reminds me of Sherlock. *_*

    1. Thanks Keit, you see... us blokes with big heads have a hard time finding anything that actually looks half decent to wear on our heads! I wasn't too sure about the Baker-Boy hat because it is quite a distinct style... so for you to say it looks okay makes me feel a bit better about it!

      Have a good weekend
