Men's Hats for Style
Men's Hats for Cool Guys!
I know how hard it is to find a hat with sex appeal! A hat that makes you look cool and yet keeps you warm. Men's winter hats come in all shapes and sizes and the one you choose matters!
When it's cold outside we all search the back of our drawers hoping to find a warm hat that isn't going to make us look like total dorks!
My wife has often stopped short in her steps, looked at me and howled with laughter because of my hat, or begged me to take it off before we went into the next shop, or bank, or anywhere - why? Because I looked ridiculous!
So I got to thinking that adventure travelers need to look cool right? But they also have to keep warm! So how do you know which hat to choose? Here's where my lens will come in very handy.

Does a Hat Really Keep You Warm?
It is a popular idea that you lose more heat from your head than elsewhere, but it’s not true. No it’s just a popular myth.
You do however need to wear a hat in the cold weather, but only because it is one way of helping to keep your whole body warm – just like wearing trousers, for example.
So what happens when it is cold outside?
When the weather’s cold your body senses this and your brain takes a few measures to protect you or at least to protect your vital organs.
The hands and feet, however, are expendable so the brain orders the blood vessels there to become narrower and give off less heat. That’s why you often look pale and your fingers can turn white when you are really cold.
If you start to feel cold inside you will also start to shiver to get some movement into your muscles and warm them up.
Inevitably, whatever comes in to contact with cold air, icy cold rain, or snow is going to become cold. That’s why we are sensible enough to cover our bodies with clothing. If we went around stripped to the waist, but wearing a hat we’d still become pretty cold.
Despite that knowledge some of us still go around dressed warmly, but with our poor heads exposed to everything the winter can throw at us. It doesn’t make much sense.
If you cover your head properly that will keep it warm. If you aren’t losing heat from your head your whole body will be warmer and the brain won’t have to close down the blood vessels in your fingers.
Keep everything covered, including your head, and you’ll be warm on the coldest winter day.
Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing – or lack of it.
"Eat the Hat!" - "Now you're taking me alliterally!"

Does your Hat work for you?
My wife's dad wore a hat, but not to keep out the cold, it was an indoor hat. It was a very tall white hat that had to be starched into shape. He was a chef.
I was wondering how many of you wear a hat at work as part of a uniform maybe.
Please leave and comment if you do and tell us what work you do. Do you think it suits you? What is it for? And do you like wearing it?
