Argh! Let's Play
The Hat Makes the Man
When a man puts a hat on, it changes the way he thinks. When a woman selects a hat for a man, it indicates how she wants him to think.

For some reason, a man's hat is connected to his groin. Don't try to figure it out...it's one of life's mysteries.
A man's hat is connected directly to his groin...Don't try to figure it out...use it...make him a legend in his own mind.

Man Fashion Show
Want to have some fun? Take your man shopping for a hat. At first he will bulk...but, watch what happens when he starts trying on different hats. Watch how he changes from one character to another. Guaranteed, if you get him to do it...you both will end up laughing and learning just a little more of what's hidden inside.
Give Him an Audience
For extra benefit for both you and him, take along a friend. Even the shyest most reserved man will perform the larger the audience. If you break down his wall, he will end up not only entertain you and your friends, but he also will discover what makes you laugh.
A man's hat is his "on" button
It won't take you long to figure out his "on" button. He will learn by your response what character he transforms into with what hat. If you want him to be sophisticated...don't encourage him to wear a baseball cap...a brimmed hat like a Fedora will do the trick.
Baseball hats fall in a category all their own and there is a time a place to wear them. Again, like stylish type hats, there are both good and bad looks. When a man chooses to wear a baseball hat, his mindset is more of a playful/work focus. You will find that men have favorites and will wear them until they fall apart. These are fun and functional at the same time but certainly not what you want him to wear on a night on the town.
Buying as a Gift
Buying a hat for your man can be a very tricky thing. When he receive one it instantly tells him that he is expected to wear it. You will be able to tell by his "instant" response how he interpreted the intent. Right from the go, let him know the reason why you chose it and how important it is to you. If he sees your excitement his guard will come down and he will trust your judgement. A great companion gift might be a pair of tickets to a special show or event. It is a good idea in this case to give him the tickets first as a build-up.
Show and Tell
The first thing a man will want to do when he receives a hat as a gift is put it on. Stop Him! This is a great time to make the gift even more special. You already know how the hat will look best, There is a big difference between putting on a baseball cap and a stylish hat.
Place the hat on him, adjust it to the "perfect" look and then, get him to look in the mirror so he can see for himself the look you have chosen. Follow it up with a picture of both of you. This simple step will make the occasion everlasting in his mind.
Make Your Man a Legend
