Comments on "What's in a hat?" - Faerye Net 2005-11-14T07:35:23+00:00 He owns more than one hat 2005-11-14T07:35:23+00:00 2005-11-14T07:35:23+00:00 <p>He wears the snappy Fedora on the streets of Chicago. He might wear the Indiana Jones version in the wilds. By the way, IJ&#8217;s hat is also a Fedora. It just has a wider brim than the city version. Perhaps in the desert he finds the Aussie top more appropriate.</p> dr512 Aussie all the way 2005-11-12T22:59:30+00:00 2005-11-12T22:59:30+00:00 <p>ohmigoshicanpostican&#8217;tbelieveit!<br /> <br /> Ahem. Strangely, I feel like I just popped out of one of those cartoon holes in the wall. Hi there =)<br /> <br /> Aussie hat was the first thing that popped into my mind. Aside from his lack of fashion sense by foregoing said hat, (completely forgivable, although somewhat dissapointing, in a male) he&#8217;d strike a nice, independent guy sort of figure without one.<br /> <br /> But that&#8217;s coming from someone who&#8217;s never even considered giving a guy a hat in any of her stories before.<br /> <br /> By the way, good to see you on the NaNoWriMo track!</p> smiir Re: ALL CAPS 2005-11-12T15:56:19+00:00 2005-11-12T15:56:19+00:00 <p>I have considered an officer&#8217;s cap, and it may after all be the winner. It is a bit cheesy, but, after all. This is pulp.</p> felicity I vote for an Aussie hat... 2005-11-11T08:34:56+00:00 2005-11-11T08:34:56+00:00 <p>... in spite of the story&#8217;s notable lack (thus far) of Velociraptors. It&#8217;s the appropriate headgear for his situation- wide-brimmed, floppy, warm, etc. Alligator teeth on the hatband should be considered optional.</p> bedrick Notes 2005-11-11T05:44:22+00:00 2005-11-11T05:44:22+00:00 <p>I have two comments. they might even be related, but it&#8217;s 8:30 in the morning, &#38; rational thought should not be required.<br /> A) Where&#8217;s the Anglophiliality of yours that we know &#38; love? I mean, un particular, where&#8217;s the /Lord Peter Whimsey? Damn but he&#8217;s a cool detective.<br /> <br /> B) Don&#8217;t be afraid to give your hero a flaw. I meanthe lack of a hat, or a silly-looking peasant farmer straw hat that clashes with above features because his head is just too perfect as is to allow any headgear to look right on it. Okay, that didn&#8217;t sound too much like a flaw. What I&#8217;m saying is don&#8217;t be afraid to make little convention omelettes, breaking little bits off as you go. Or maybe that&#8217;s not what I&#8217;m saying. You could always try a beret. they look surprisingly good on me, &#38; we all know I&#8217;m such a model of manly manliness.</p> EMeta ALL CAPS 2005-11-11T01:15:26+00:00 2005-11-11T01:15:26+00:00 <p>Perhaps he&#8217;s a modest man and wears a plain khaki garrison cap, usually tucked into his flight jacket&#8217;s shoulder strap? Or he could just break down and complete the WWII bomber captain look with an officer&#8217;s cap, golden Army Air Corps emblem and all. Or he could be jewish (Rabbi Small rearing his head again) &#8211; that would, if nothing else, be a novel attire: flight jacket and kippah. If you need more ideas, you can always consult the extensive <a href="">Wikipedia headgear list</a>.</p> GreyStork
