I am a big fan of hats. And all sorts of hats at that. Cowboy. Baseball. Bomber. Top. Pageboy.
They all bring a level of sexiness and style, when worn with the right outfit and are of good quality materials. The extra touch to an outfit that says “Yes, I believe in accessroies beyond a strap-on” or “I am having a shitty hair day but, that won’t hold me back from going out”. Plus, for the most part they are unfussy and a great icebreaker…”Nice hat, want to fuck?”
However, I am puzzled by one hat statement. The fedora-bandanna combo. I am not really sure what is going on with this one. So, there is the bandanna that is wrapped around the head like a headband. It serves the great purpose of holding ones hair back. Then there is the fedora, that serves the same purpose but with a bit more edge and appeal (in my opinion). And then to combine the two, totally lost on me. And 99.9% of the time the fedora and bandanna are the same color. As if to say “No one will notice that I am wearing a fedora and a bandanna since they are that same color.” Well I am here to tell you, I do notice that you are wearing both. You can’t trick this femme.
When I see the fedora-bandanna combo the following train of thought occurs: Papi from The L Word, hot, Miami, hotter with two forms of head accessories, WTF. There is already so much body heat in a club (where I have mainly seen the fedora-bandanna combo) that I wonder why you insist on wearing an extra layer. And I know that the fedora and bandanna do not rely on each other to help stay put on the your head, I wear both items on a regular basis as separates. I just don’t get it. Maybe, my mid-west fashion sense has been stunted by snow and corn fields.
I am not asking you to give up your look. I just ask that someday you explain to me the grand look of the fedora-bandanna combo and why it is so popular amongst your folks.
