Jumped the ship

I say only a certain people can pulled it off wearing a fedora (like Yatzee). So yeah anyone else wearing it, I see that person as the sterotypical hipster and what nots.
Yep, that's the image that immediatly comes to my mind when someone says 'fedora' (or 'Actually, that's a trilby.'). Which is a shame, because a good hat on the right head on a body wearing the right outfit is still nice to see.trollnystan said:I used to love trilbies and fedoras, but as most of the feminists I know and/or follow on twitter are constantly mocking men who wear them as self-ascribed Nice Guys so now whenever I see someone wearing one I automatically think "douchebag" =( Seriously, if anyone calls me "M'lady" I might scream. Possibly with laughter.
I'm guessing because many stereotypical fedora-wearers are considered pushovers that will agree with pretty much anything if it means they are more likely to be considered cool or get laid.Laggyteabag said:Since when were the terms feminist, gamer, SJW, or atheist ever associated with fedoras? I always thought that it was pretty much almost exclusively used in conjunction with neckbearded self-proclaimed "nice guys".
Easy, tiger. That's like saying long-haired guys "only do it to stand out". Women have been cutting their hair shortXiado said:Anything shorter than shoulder length. It's similar because it requires a bold and interesting personality to make work.
"Oh wow look, you're wearing a fedora. You must be so much different from other guys"
"Oh wow look, you cut your hair short. You're definitely not like the other girls"
Is the default reaction to people wearing a look that they adopted simply to stand out and cry their special snowflake status to the world. To make it work you need to make the unusualness of your look seem like the natural extension of a standout person, and to do that you need to be exceptional.
