* The '''pork pie hat''' is similar to a trilby or a fedora but has a flat top. It's often associated with jazz musicians and similar artist types. Several Creator/HannaBarbera characters including HuckleberryHound, WesternAnimation/YogiBear, Top Cat, [[WesternAnimation/LippyTheLionAndHardyHarHar Hardy Har Har]] and Hokey Wolf wore this headgear. In real-life, the most famous wearers of this type of hat included [[AtomicHate Manhattan Project]] physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, singer/comedian Music/DeanMartin, Chico from Creator/TheMarxBrothers silent-film slapstick legend Creator/BusterKeaton, and [[InsufferableGenius notorious]] architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and jazz saxophonist Lester Young (who, following his 1959 death, was memorialized with a song composed by fellow jazzman Music/CharlesMingus on his album ''Music/MingusAhUm'' and titled "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat").

* The '''Trilby''' looks like a Fedora, but has a lower crown and shorter "stingy" brim (though hat experts will get into [[SeriousBusiness heated arguments]] over where the dividing line between the two is, precisely). Trilbys are also often made of patterned canvas rather than felt. The trilby was often used in older stories for reporters, usually with a "PRESS" tag tucked into the band. Also, ''Literature/AClockworkOrange''. Or [[VideoGame/ChzoMythos Trilby]], or [[Creator/BenCroshaw his]] [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation writer]]. Also a favorite of jazz musicians and {{hipster}}s. If made of sewn fabric instead of moulded felt, expect a GrumpyOldMan in a suit that was obviously bought when he was several decades younger (and [[MiniatureSeniorCitizens several inches taller]]). Oft mistaken for, and sold as, fedoras; please note that many people who rail against fedoras on the grounds that they look silly or associate them with nerds and misogynists and other such grognards are actually thinking of trilbys. A good way to tell the difference: [[HumphreyBogart Bogie]] [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_8j0xzOXdJI8/TTcQP7nLppI/AAAAAAAAAIY/PfLjOHgswYE/s1600/casablanca2.jpg wore a fedora]]. BingCrosby [[http://img.mp3lyrics.com/art/bd26c6a5.jpg wore a trilby]].

* '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homburg_%28hat%29 Homburg]]''': A stiff felt hat that strikes a nice balance between the staid (and silly-looking) bowler and the softer Trilby and Fedora. Has a hard, curled brim like the bowler, but a lengthwise crease in the crown like the latter two (though usually not pinched in front). A common sight on the head of mid-20th-century politicians such as UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill, [[TheChancellorsOfGermany Konrad Adenauer]], and Anthony Eden, it has also come to be identified with TheMafia, leading to the nickname "Godfather hat" in some circles. Usable in settings from TheEdwardianEra onwards (it became popular after Edward himself copied the hunting-hat of his least-favourite nephew, Kaiser Wilhelm II), the Homburg projects class without being as ostentatious as a top hat or as silly as a bowler. For this reason, it's still the hat of choice to go with a tuxedo. Interestingly, Russian-turned-American (he fled during the Bolshevik Revolution) helicopter pioneer Igor Sikorsky for the most part refused to be caught dead anywhere without wearing a black Homburg hat, ''[[BadAss even while test-piloting his own prototypes for their first EVER flights]]''

# Properly, one should not wear a felt hat after Straw Hat Day, the day when everyone switches from felt to straw hats, often in unison. The exact date varies regionally, with many regional populations believing that the day has been federally fixed at May 15, but other areas always use a certain day of the week, and other areas prefer dates as early as April. Similarly, a straw hat should not be worn after mid-September. The only constant for the dates is that felt hats are never worn between Memorial and Labor Day.

[[note]]Fun fact: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_Hat_Riot In at least one case, this rule has led to a riot.]] [[/note]]
** Cowboy hats are an exception to the rule, being particularly intended for summer use.

* '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucket_hat Bucket hat]]''': A must for any fishing trip. Bonus points if there are fishing lures stuck into the crown for easy access. Used constantly instead of just for fishing, this style of hat can become an [[NiceHat iconic part of the character]]. For example, [[GilligansIsland Gilligan]] or [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Kisuke Urahara]]. Or HunterSThompson (when he's not [[BaldOfAwesome sporting his natural crown]]). [[IThoughtItMeant But not]] Music/{{Buckethead}}.

* '''Whoopee cap''': A felt cap with a short brim turned up all around, cut into a jagged shape reminiscent of a crown. It's usually accessorized with pins and buttons with slogans on them. Popular among kids during the 1930s and 1940s, when they would cut up their fathers' old (and, one hopes, officially thrown-out) fedoras to make them. Most appearances in fiction died out after the 1950s, but it can be seen on characters like [[ArchieComics Jughead]] and [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Goober Pyle]]. The stereotypes for wearers (if they're not kids in contemporary works) are "teenage {{delinquent}}" or "ManChild", depending on age.

* The '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kepi Kepi]]''' is a must for any self-respecting gendarme or member of the French Foreign Legion. Charles de Gaulle managed to be seen in one and still be taken seriously, but they tend to be given over to parody nowadays. (See, for example, the Steve Martin incarnation of ''ThePinkPanther''.) A soft form of kepi called a "forage cap" is also associated with the UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar and is the ancestor of the baseball cap (returned Civil War soldiers would play in their uniform hats to keep the sun out of their eyes).

** This hat gets a lot of variation when worn by [[DGrayMan the Millennium Earl.]] Who just so happens to be a caricature of a Victorian Gentleman. Except he is very sinister.
