Pork Pie Hat
Hi guys,<br><br>I've decided to be brave and attempt to purchase some headwear for my somewhat freakishly large head.<br><br>I'm looking to buy a pork pie hat, one with a feather in the side preferably a charcoal colour.<br><br>Does anyone know of any good hat places online for me to check out?
I got a pork pie hat from River Island a couple of seasons ago, definitely the way to go. Too many trillbys around.
My father is a pork pie guy, I am a straw boater and homburg man myself. However, I think it is a great hat!
It doesn't look as though River Island do Pork Pies anymore unfortunatley.
I was thinking of wearing this with skinny black jeans, white shirt and black winkle pickers. Any alternate ideas?
I have one of these. I think you have to be devastatingly cool to pull it off. I am not. But it can be done.
Consider ditching the winklepickers, very outmoded mid-"noughties"/sixties look, and you're liable to look a little silly. You can still wear a pointy shoe - just make sure it's nice, moderate and rounded. Cheap pointy shoes are abhorrent.
Cheers Sam, good advice. I've recently had a hole in my winkle pickers so they really should be thrown away. Did consider buying a new pair but I've started wearing more of a rounder ankle boot.
As for the 'have to be devastatingly cool' - That did cross my mind but I figured best to give it a go. I've made enough fashion mistakes over the years not to be put off by another one.
Where did you get yours from? I was advised Portabello Road by a friend. Brick Lane was an absolute shambles. I'll stick to just getting beigals from there I think.
Mine is from Bailey Hats, and I bought it from here.
I'm not going to lie, I found it with Google :')
I've Googled so many hat shops online. Unreal how many bad ones there are.
This is one I found before actually and there are 3 really good hats on there... unfortunately all of them are black. Ideally I want something a bit more charcoal/grey or even Burgundy. Something a bit more neutral that isn't black.
I'm going to be difficult with this one sorry, hats are a big step so I want to get it right.
How much are you willing to spend? Luxury is nice in all things, but hats are liable to ruin if you're not careful.
I trawled pretty much every website I know, and turned up exactly one pork pie hat. Alas, it's only available in small, so probably won't fit your "freakishly large head". I also found a trilby that is almost a pork pie hat, and a hat that's charcoal and feathered, but not a pork pie hat.
Looks like you might be searching a while ;)

Sam that is fantastic, thank you for searching for me I really didn't expect that.
I really like the 'Not porkpie' hat actually. I think I'm going to check out Portabello Road to see if they have anything if not I think this one is a safe backup.
Thank you again. This Elephant Man is very pleased.
