I don't know if this vitally important issue has been addressed so I thought that I'd start a new topic. In my rebuild of my reloading room I've added some more places to hang my hats so I thought that this might be interesting. Now all 12 of mine have a place to hang out.
     Just how many CAS and GAF hats do you have? Do you have any original collectables? As our interests evolve, our outfits/uniforms change and you've just gotta get another hat. Have you ever gotten a new hat because you've bought new leather, a gun or guns?
I've got 12 that I swap out, most are DI style, a British Zulu style pith helmet, my Indiana Jones fedora and a couple of nice cowboy hats. I'll post some photos later, my room faces east so the suns in the wrong place for decent photos.

Ah, without going downstairs, I think I have 9.  Some are Palm for Summer, Three are some form of straw (two top hats) for Summer, the rest are different styles of felt of Western style.

Only 6, but 5 of them are copies of the hat Lee Van Cleef wore in "For A Few Dollars More". Loading the car one day on the way to a match, I laid my hat down inside the house.  Came back in two minutes later and the hat was gone Huh. Discovered one of my Great Danes had decided to make it a early morning snack! He only had time to take one bite out of the brim. I was able to trim back the brim and salvage the hat. Gee, its been about 5 years since I bought a new hat--maybe its time.

Nine, plus two homburgs, two mountain man hats, and tam o' shanter, three good fedoras, a trilby, a Vietnam era "boonie hat", a real French beret, and a watch cap.

Oh yeah, and a cheap straw hat that I wear for working in the yard.

And three veteran's baseball caps

5 at the moment.  My favorite from Dirty Billy's (in my pic), a D Bar J, 2 straws, and one wool felt.  This week I'm expecting a new "favorite".  A new D Bar J "shag" 100% rabbit, in the same shape as the one in my pic.  Supposed to ship tomorrow...

One more today: a 1941 black Stetson marked 5X and in a size 7 7/8.  I'll get it cleaned up and have it steamed back into shape and wear it.  Heavy, weighs about a half a ton.  I'll probably save it for winter.
