    What kind of hat do you think looks best in the east?

    Depends on the person. The WM (or acting WM) should wear the hat he prefers.

    What are the requirements or guidelines for the WM's hat?

    It has to have a full brim. I like dress hats. Cowboy hat just isn't for me. I'm not too big on hats at all though.;)

    Same here... am a proud Texan but the whole "cowboy" thing just doesn't do it for me. I wear boots, but biker boots.

    Plan on buying a Fedora, myself.

    Speaking of hats, can't wait to bring my sailor's hat to the next MM degree -- for obvious reasons ;). Always good to have a little fun when one can.

    Umm, do you think that you will be able to wear the sailor hat in open lodge? It was my understanding that only the Master of the lodge could be covered.

    I for one like the "western hat" theme.

    Our current WM chose to wear a fedora this year.

    our WM last year if I remember started off in a western style and ended with a fedora; the older crowd grumbled everytime he pulled it out. Gotta love'em

    Don't wanna say too much sincd this isn't a tiled forum, but, don't think it'll be a problem for the short period required... especially since it has no brim, and can't be confused with the WM's hat. Will just have to see...

    I hate hats, but Dress hats would be my preference although I'd look like a dork either way.

    Our Past Master opened and closed with a sombrero in his last stated meeting as WM.

    That had to be an instant classic.

    If I'm not mistaken, when the special degree teams confer a degree in costume, most of them wear head gear...but I could definitely be wrong

    I think that some WMs feel like they have to wear a cowboy hat, when you can clearly see it's not for them. My suggestion would be for them to wear whatever they feel comfortable in.

    Costumes are allowed i.e. sailor hat, I for one will go western but would wear a top hat at the drop of a hat, pardon my pun. lol I know many that just look plain silly in a cowboy hat TC Shelton wearing a cowboy hat still makes me giggle.

    Western, specially for the Texas lodges! I thought it was a pretty neat thing the first time I saw it!

    I prefer dress hats, but not everyone can pull off wearing that type of hat. Western hats look pretty good on most of the WMs I've seen.
