Should I Flatten My Hat Brim As I Age? - Herbietown

Should I Flatten My Hat Brim As I Age?

I bought a hat from Ambler Farm last week at the Cannon Grange agricultural fair.  It’s what I call a Ricky J style hat, which only a few people will understand as a reference, but he’s a friend’s father who is hilarious and definitely a fashion role model.

The question is, how do I wear it?

I used to spend a lot of time as a teenager looking for that perfect bend in the brim, but I think as a 33 year old, even one with a beard, a full bend is no longer appropriate.

Some options below.  Thoughts?

Deep bend

Flat bend

    The fact that you even want to bend the brim proves that you are old and out of date: these days whipper snappers want a hip, flat, non bent brim.
