Twice now, I have been writing a newsletter and accidentally spent fifteen minutes trying to figure out the correct terminology for a weird hat a woman is wearing

· · Web · 6 · 3 · 21

@kevinwhipwrecked I know what a fascinator is! What kind of commoner do you take me for

@kevinwhipwrecked it was a newsboy cap, not the flat Kangol kind, the puffy one

@InternetEh that's literally the only reason anyone would ever follow me

@Pixley according to a Sid and Marty Krofft documentary I recently watched the preferred term is "lids"

@robotcarsley @Pixley I know in the Navy the hats are called "covers" (always love the pisscutter but that's the kid in me)

@Pixley this is the intrepid reporting we all subscribe for

@Taweret according to THIS chart, it was a gatsby cap

@Pixley this chart incorrectly labels a trillby as a fedora though so i don't know how much faith i would put in it

@Taweret there are honestly too many contrasting hat facts on the internet

@Pixley agreed because if you google gatsby cap you get what this chart calls a newsboy and not what it calls a gatsby cap so

in conclusion, hats are a garment of contrasts. thank you for your time

@Pixley @Taweret the hat listed as a panama is actually a fedora because a panama is a fedora with a wider brim

@Pixley @Taweret there's also a safari which is closer to a panama than a fedora and here I'll direct you to this website because I swear to god I'm not a hat guy I only have like 2 hats,

@Pixley @Taweret also under "type" there are big head and small head which is very funny to me

@Thomas @Taweret Thomas where were you when I was trying to name the hat the mom from Deadly Spa was wearing

@Thomas no, Deadly Spa is the one where the mom and daughter to on a vacation to a spa that turns out to be run by a murderous cult, and there's a lot of archery and a weird hat (but thank you)

@Thomas @Pixley @Taweret what i love about this homepage is that by making all the models look down to show off the hats, they've created a mood board about being sad in fancy hats

@Taweret @Pixley about as much faith as I would put in the rest of the internet, which has been committing the same mistake for going on a decade

@Taweret @Pixley ah yes, the uhhhh [squints a little too hard] cloaca hat
