We Can Go Where We Want To: (Beautiful) Men with Hats

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | June 19, 2013 | Comments ()


Apropos of any day, here are some gorgeous, hat-wearing dudes to get you through the long day. Those others, they can smell all the roses; I'll be here in the gallery of men.
































Cindy Davis, (Twitter) is acting like she comes from out of this world...

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Tarn

    .... and of course.....

  • Leigh

    I can't see a newsboy cap without thinking of Gilbert Blythe. Then I get all swoon-y.

  • Buellie413

    I heart you so hard for this.

  • George

    And here is Tom, you had to know that was coming right?

  • yocean

    OK, not sure the second one count but...headwear.

  • yocean

    Jackie Chan, Asia's biggest playboy.

  • yocean

    Takuya Kimura

  • yocean

    Ken Watanabe, and iconic MR. Private Dick , Yusaku Matsuda. Bitches.

  • yocean

    Thanks for including exactly one Asian Man (and no Latino? Prince,as much as he could probably pass for one is not I think). This list precisely shows how Male sexy-ness in relation to race is perceived in Hollywood. I mean could you not find a sexy picture of Ken Watanabe in hat? OK, I tried and it was hard but still!

  • dizzylucy

    It's a good thing I didn't see this while at work. I actually got some stuff done today instead.

    Solidly beautiful list, but it's a tough call between Indiana Jones and Raylan Givens for me.

  • Bananapanda

    I would add Tom Selleck in there but THIS is an unforgiveable omission:

  • Mrs. Julien

    I may have moaned and/or sighed when I saw this. It was a soft sound, hushed and reverent.

  • Uriah_Creep


  • Uriah_Creep

    Dudes in hats don't do much for me (I'M a dude in a hat), but I'm shocked you didn't include Josh Holloway.

  • toblerone

    Matt Smith / Yul Brynner / Malcolm McDowell.

  • misslucyjane

    I approve of everything this post is and wishes to be.

  • Jon Hamm was BORN to wear a hat, and I'm forever grateful for Mad Men for letting him wear one all the damn time. The guy does some prop magic with that thing, it's amazing to watch.

  • Maguita NYC

    Well of course the man was born to wear hats. After all, he is equipped with his own hat rack.

  • pamebedelia

    Might I suggest ...

  • kucheza

    Well played. Very well played.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • alwaysanswerb

    Tennant and then Elba was like a one-two punch of my favorite Doctors (in my dreams, obviously, since Elba isn't a Doctor YET)

  • PaddyDog

    Perhaps this was just an unintentional oversight?

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Shiny. *literally in my bunk right now*

  • Karlew

    One of my Five in a hat:

  • Meli_V

    Simply fabulous.

  • Jamie

    Excuse me, but Chris Pine can wear the shit out of a newsboy hat.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm just going to think about Sam Elliott and smile.

  • pambedelia

    Because YES

  • Paul Newman AND John Hamm AND John Barrowman?

    I'll be in my bunk the rest of the day. Carry on.

  • Samantha Klein

    Ok, who is that after Mr. Kelly? I know I'm going to kick myself when you tell me, but I can't come up with the name...

  • jeannebean

    I think it's Koji Yakusho as the gourmet gangster in Tampopo. Lordy, what that man could do with brandy and live shrimp...

  • Nobody could wear a fedora like Bogart.

  • Feralhousecat

    There's just something about Newman......
    And Elba is quite the beauty
    But I'm missing William Powell.

  • Mrs. Julien

    God, yes.

  • Anna von Beav

    Mmm mm mm James Dean.

  • Kathleen Allen

    there. fixed it. bruce was as nonplussed as i about the whole situation.

  • Adrienne Marie

    I love you.

  • mediaprof

    Oh, where is Damian Lewis in his Band of Brothers Army hat?

  • John W

    I need to get a fedora.

  • PerpetualIntern


  • lowercase_ryan

    The header pic is so dangerously close to having too much damn cool in it, the internet is bursting at the seams.

    Every time some pop idol nincompoop makes a reference to SWAG they should be held down and shown that photo.

  • buell

    They can all leave their hats on!

  • ljridley

    Because I am a tiny bit obsessed...

  • Steph

    A million upvotes!

  • Laura

    So what you're saying is, GOT needs to put a hat on Bronn.

  • Say Yes to the Fez.

  • ljridley

    And make a spin off...Bronn and his hat fight crime and fling wild fire. Or something. I'm still working on the concept. Excuse me, going to my bunk now.

  • Samantha Klein

    Yum. That is all.

    Oh, and thanks for the Gene Kelly. :)

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Oh fedoras, please come back... we miss you... and bring cloche with you too while you are at it.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    I've held this opinion for a while now. I feel like Sinatra & Co. should come back from the grave and wipe the floor with every fedora (which really are trilby hats these days, i think?) wearing douchebag on the planet.

  • The problem is that fedoras only look right on a clean-shaven man and every man today has chin fuzz.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Are you talking not having a goatee? Because I refer you to the picture of Harrison Ford up there, who is rocking both fedora and stubble.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    YES! Stubble!!! Ain't nothing wrong with that.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    I don't know if fedoras can be de-douched right now. Maybe next decade.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Well I am talking about Borsalinos not that Target bullsh_t... stingy brim pieces of crap...

  • Bodhi

    This is glorious, thank you

  • Amy Love

    Someone please tell my husband there's not a single baseball cap here.

  • Laura

    Olyphant should be on here a few times. You know, for different characters.

    And hoo boy, Paul Newman and Robert Redford! But where's my glowering Clint Eastwood?!

  • I don't know--he was there and somehow got lost in the sea of men. Fixed :)

  • Laura

    Yay! I knew it had to be something like that! I would like to be lost in this sea of men as well.

  • e jerry powell

    You got dangerously close to triggering a Smutty Gay Response there...

  • mswas

    People aren't wearing enough hats

  • e jerry powell

    Does anyone still wear a hat?

    [/Elaine Stritch]


  • mswas

    I'll drink to that!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Let's aaaaall drink to that.

  • e jerry powell

    Damn right.

  • Is this true?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Not in Williamsburg (NY, not VA)

  • BWeaves

    Whenever I wear a hat, I get SOOOOO many compliments from strangers. Yes, both women and men need to wear more hats. (And baseball hats are not grownup hats.)

  • Kathleen Allen

    i'm not usually one of those 'HOWCOULDYOULEAVEOUT' girls, but HOWCOULDYOULEAVEOUT Bruce Campbell as Brisco County Jr. ? i would like to chalk this up to a sudden blow to the head, otherwise i will have to question everything about the paj from here on.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Are McKellan and Stewart all "Nothing to be done./I've been coming around to that conclusion myself"?

  • PaddyDog

    Yes. From their performance of Godot in London which is coming to New York later this year and you know I'm going if I have to sell a kidney.

  • JenVegas

    word, me too. i keep forgetting to see if there are dates for that show yet. Must. Not. Miss. That. No matter what the cost.

  • Feralhousecat

    I did not know about this. Thank you. I am suddenly grateful for that second kidney. It is a goner.

  • PaddyDog

    Tickets go on sale July 15

  • Feralhousecat

    Thank you.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Broadway rhythm it's got me, EVERYBODY DANCE!

  • Scootsa1000

    Gene Kelly makes any day a little better.

  • Leigh

    Heck yes. I like your thinking.

  • Allijo99

    Can we amend to have Matt Damon from Behind the Candelabra included? Otherwise, flawless list. Prince was a nice surprise.

  • Maguita NYC

    I'll amend with frosted blonde hair and pink lipstick.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Oh god, Gregory Peck and his beautiful lips. And eyes. And...

  • Bert_McGurt

    That reminds me...it's about time I bust out my Panama for the summer.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    No Doctor in Stetson pic? For shame, Pajiba.

  • BWeaves

    Well, as much as I like the Doctor, Matt Smith in a cowboy hat is not hot.

    He's certainly not Paul Newman in a fedora and tank top hot. Thank Gotopus that Botox didn't exist when he was alive. His forehead wrinkles drive me insane, in that good, moist way.

  • PaddyDog

    I'll be back to post in about an hour. I'm....well, let's just say I'm occupied right now.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Dora backpack?

  • PaddyDog

    And Dora wet wipes!!!
