Example

Wearing hat askew — Do you need a different size?

Looking at old photos, it seems that many if not most men wore their hat (fedora or western) at a jaunty angle, in some cases what appears to be a rather extreme one. But when I try to do this with a hat that “fits” when worn straight, I end up with one uncomfortably smooshed ear. I normally wear a 7-1/4, but I’m wondering if a smaller size is necessary to make this work, or does having an angled hat mean getting used to it sitting on top of an ear on one side?
