Don't slouch it

I've previously posted about my annoyance with slouchy hats. Sadly, they don't seem to be going away any time soon, whether they be worn by tween, Bieber-wannabes or older gents.

Perhaps the most annoying trend of this overly affected accessory is for it to be combined with formal wear such as a sports jacket or suit. Here is a recent photo of Jude Law sporting the look:

Of course, he's also grown the mandatory lumberjack beard to complete his carefully crafted bohemian image.

The attempted broadcasted message: "I am one part classy, dapper gentleman, and one part down-home earthy bloke, at one with the Occupy Movement".

During the last decade, some men would often dress down a suit with running shoes, and I could live with that. But I'm sorry--the only hat that can be worn with a suit is a fedora.

Let me codify this into the following fashion rule:

With a suit/blazer/sport jacket, no slouchy hats.

No baseball hats (unless it's draft day).

No Cowboy hats.

Newsboy caps are sometimes OK.

Lastly, if you wear a blazer, slouchy hat AND a scarf indoors, you truly are an overly affected tool. *Sorry*
