    Default Cowboy Hats: Felt, or Straw?

    I'm more a ball cap guy, but considering a western hat just for something different to wear with my boots. I wear a wool Filson hat in the winter, but of course that is out of the question for the summer.

    So, what say ye? Any one better than the other, and why?

    Is there a way to wear a hat and end up in between this:



    and this:



    on the formal/casual scale?

    Would have to lean towards George's Resistol.

    Only about halfway serious I'm considering a hat, but I'll go out and buy the damn hat I decide want if/when I buy one. But having not owned a I am a bit curious if there is a practical difference between felt and straw (aside from straw being much cooler for my melon).


    The other half of my question is trolling OSA with pictures of that tool Bret Michaels. Seriously - who wears hats like this?



    I certainly hope no one here, for their own sake.

    I could be wrong but I thought there was an etiquette rule. Straw after memorial day and after labor u switch over to felt. Kinda like the white shoes thing.

    you need at least one of each. felt for winter and more formal settings. straw for just wearing and working, preferably 2 straw hats, summer casual and gettin nasty

    i quit buying straw hats a few years ago as they seem not to last very long for me. its either a ball cap or felt hat for me. i do miss the palm leaf hat i owned. lasted about 2 years before i ruined it.

    I vote palm leaf. My Larry Mahan is one of my favorites. A black felt is nice for dressing up a bit, but I wear the palm leaf anytime.

    What's wrong with a hat? All you Oh so Proud Okies ashamed of a cowboy hat? Damn, everytime I think you all can't get any more distance between what you say and what you do....

    Hats are great. I wear a straw cowboy hat in the summer. I bought two new ones this summer; a Stetson and a Resitol. Last year, I bought a Larry Mahan. They go great with button up Polo shirts (not knit) and khakis and boots. Just be sure you get a good western belt.

    Summer is too damn hot for a felt hat. The Rule used to be straw after Easter and Felt after Labor Day, but the fact is it is damn hot here until October. I usually wear a felt hat when it cools down.

    And don't get one of those damn Brett Michaels/Madonna straw hats. They look good on college girls and thats the only time they look good.
