Last weekend I was in NYC standing in front of 1 World Trade Center. I saw a gentleman walk by. It was obvious he was a gentleman; he was wearing a snap brim fedora with a little larger brim and a little taller crown. He had a full beard with handlebar moustache. But what really set him apart was his stick. It was a natural mahogany color and tapered to a small end, maybe 1/2" with a ram's horn handle of an amber color. The handle was shaped like the English market sticks with a reverse curve that made a complete small circle. Very stylish!

I agree. Most likely never to be seen around here.

I don't remember the last time I saw a decent fedora being worn around here and have yet to see a market stick-though I have seen one blackthorn stick up in Seattle.

I have a couple of fedoras. Folks usually stare when I wear them. Once in awhile someone will tell me they like it and where can they get one.

I've been wearing fedoras for 40 years, they do go well with walking sticks. I do get a few compliments on both, usually from other old guys with fedoras and walking sticks!

I was a fedora man in the 70's. Went well with my leisure suit at the disco.
