FEDORA
In the first half of the 20th century, this was a hat synonymous with manly style. It was about looking cool without appearing juvenile.

In present times, the fedora is a trademark of the socially inept beta male. He is attempting to distance himself from pop culture with the distinct style of past fashion. But he captures none of the suave, and only comes off looking like an oblivious, pompous fool. This is especially the case when it's a low-quality fedora coupled with unfashionable clothes and an unkempt appearance.

Modern fedora-wearers are typically associated with the *chan internet culture and Asperger's Syndrome (aspie).
If you are not Humphrey Bogart, you should not wear a fedora.


yes, fedora shaming.  you saw it here.



notable exception, Stan Lee of the Dickies.  (one of my favorite guitarists ever.... so, isn't he disqualified ?)
