I have both, but more often I wear my Bowler or Fedora than my Top Hat. I find that Top Hats are more to be used in formal occasions.

I wear a bowler, but the real reason is the economy of it. Smiley  I can afford the bowler more easily than a topper.  Plus I dress more casual steampunk instead of formal well somewhere in the middle... well anyway I am wearing a bowler with goggles on the band as I type this.  Smiley

Would it ever be appropriate to wear a fedora?

Would it ever be appropriate to wear a fedora?

At the turn of the century, it was considered a stylish hat for women:

It didn't catch on for men until the interwar period.

Don't forget the trilby, the boater, the fedora, the homburg, the newsboy cap, the flat cap, the wide-awake, the pork-pie, the cowboy hat...and those are just tradtionally "mens" styles! Cheesy

(Leave it to the milliner to make things complicated.)

You forgot the Fez - how can anyone forget the Fez.

I have one Bowler hat and three top hats - a short Jaxon Deadman topper, a standard sized grey topper and a stovepipe.  Out of those four I tend to wear the Stovepipe the most - often with a Fez under it.

When I'm not to be found in full steampunk wear, I'll often be wearing my beloved bowler, been wearing one for 6 years now, and she'll never leave my side

I for one do not care for flat caps or bowlers.  They're a bit too side-kick for my taste.

I tend to favor my fedora, top hat or my outback.
