Hinch's hat band

Post  Hinch on Sun Jun 23, 2013 6:59 pm

No, not THAT sort of band you fool. I mean 'banned'!

Hinch and his hat are a menace to society. Was told to remove my headgear in a good real ale pub in Rawtenstall a few weeks ago as they were banned. Reason? "Security." Were it a ski-mask, hoodie or balaclava, they might have had a point but this was my second-best trilby bought on Fifth Avenue, New York for Chrissakes.

Then, last Tuesday, was in Southport in a Holt's pub,The Imperial wearing my very smart, blue and white, needle-striped flattie. Again I was told to remove it. The 'reason' this time was 'rules'.

What is happening to the world? Is this 62 year old fart threatening the social order with his nifty head-gear? Where is the logic?

Next time I'll be ready for 'em. When it happens again I'll tell them about my ongoing chemotherapy and about my hair coming out in handfuls and watch 'em squirm. It worked at a lunchtime concert at St Mary in the Baum. Boy, did that sanctimonious old crone look embarrassed. 

So, I won't be going in The White Lion at Rawtie anymore or The Imperial at Southport.

you failed to mention the ‘horns,’  the Wi-fi surgical implants,
some recent ‘ Burka ‘ activities,  and your notoriety for succumbing
to passive-aggressive breaches of civility to make a point.

Ever tried going bare-footed into different hostelries?

Funny old country at the moment. Why would wearing a hat offend?

Perhaps you missed a point TP ?   The subject was the wearing of a hat, like a flatty, or the frightening floopy :?:referred to in Wild West Wales,  indoors   


Fashion, social or identity statements, versus weather protectors, or what ...


Anyway, apart from the obvious rainwear, what item(s of clothing should we expect people to take off indoors, either in a public or a private place, that you'd expect to be able to wear with impunity outdoors, and why ? Rolling Eyes    Or even visa versa ?    Different rules/expectations for men and women?

When my female friend attended a Buckingham Palace garden party last month, she was told that she had to wear a hat. Her hubby was told he mustn't wear one. Summat to do with court etiquette no doubt.

I wear hats simply because I like 'em and even wear one in the house, as indeed I am now. In my childhood, virtually all men wore a flattie, trilby or bowler.

I've always worn one on holiday; usually a panama but in past 3-4 years, I have worn one most of the time and now have about 20. They have become a bit of a trademark.

If pubs don't want me to wear my hat indoors, they should provide hatstands.

My current favourite is my Stetson trilby made in Germany. I would love a genuine boater and a striped blazer.

I wonder how much trouble hooded youths have ever causing in real ale pubs over the years? Not a lot, I'd guess.

I can imagine there's been a lot more of that since free travel passes were introduced.

To say nothing of drink-sodden, mobility-scooter driving OAP's weaving about drunkenly at high speed along our pavements with no penalty points or threat of disqualification to worry about.

Always fancied a leather one MJH but narrow brimmed hats don't suit me and I don't want to go around looking like some rude-boy gangsta. My friend has one made of p*gskin but it might cause offence.

8 years ago just before Christmas my husband 15 year old daughter and l were meeting my son in Manchester at about 6-30 in the evening. We had arranged to meet at a café in the printworks we were all stood at the counter while my husband was ordering coffee for us and juice for my daughter, who barely l came up to the counter top. As it was winter my daughter was wearing a woollen hat and matching scarf. A member of staff asked her to remove her hat, when l asked my daughter why and she said, well its so that l can be recognised on the CCTV if l commit a crime, or start a fight. Well my husband and l couldn't complain as we were laughing and continued to laugh for about 10 minutes. My daughter 7 years later is just a shade over 5 foot and takes size 3 shoes, so how threating did she look. I have to say it still makes me giggle when l tell the story. Having said all that have always through Hinch looks shifty with or without a hat.
