Q: “Johnny Depp looks so cool in his fedora. Can I pull that look off here (in Manila)?”
- Lester, Sucat
A: I’m not going to give you any hope that you can pull this off without looking T.H. (trying hard) so just forget about it. I know, I know, it looks so good on magazines and on Capt. Jack Sparrow, but please… Some self-proclaimed fashionistas may think there’s nothing wrong with wearing a fedora, but you see, these are the same people who wear scarves when Ayala Ave. starts putting up its traditional Christmas decors.
If you’ve already bought yourself a fedora and are looking for when you can wear it, go to Intramuros, wear a barong Tagalog, and bring a cane.
