How many people who wear hats make a habit of tipping their hats? That's the proper etiquette.

You can keep your hat on in a public elevator - unless there is a woman present, then you should take it off.

Unless you are a women, then these rules really don't apply to you at all anyway so carry on as you were

It's silly and trite and without purpose

Yes, some things do. Most things concerning class don't. I don't see many gentlemen wearing hats at all, that is fashion, but I do see the few that do so tip them where appropriate.

I already explained theories as to where the custom originated.

But hey, go your own way. I don't care.

Do you have a problem with people not following convention and tipping their hat towards you or in some instances even wearing them in your presence?

Are you alarmed that people aren't standing up everytime you enter or exit a room?

Do you get angry when walking on a public street that a guy you are with doesn't stand on the curb side at all times?

How about when sharing the back seating arrangement of a car with a man - if he takes the seat to your right do you get offended at the implication that has on you?

We are talking about etiquette, not fashion, fads, or uniform/appropriate attire for the occasion. I could state top hats are an etiquette item, and our presidents violate this etiquette, but fact is the top hat thing was just fashion.

A framer at a construction site is not wearing a suit, are they now considered impolite? No of course not, because wearing a suit is not an subject of etiquette.

Etiquette with purpose - taking off shoes when entering someone's home. You would not take your shoes off when entering an office for a job interview, would you? Taking off shoes prevents a person from tracking dirt all over someone's floor. As seen in the thread in the world forum, not everyone does this, yet there is an actual impact this etiquette has. I wonder how many people who do not take off shoes think a person should remove their hat.

You obviously do care about what others do or else you wouldn't be on the internet, taking up time complaining about something so trivial as to how and where a complete stanger wears their hat

No, not in this country. I wouldn't entering their home either, unless I saw others doing so or was asked to. That isn't an etiquette issue in our country. Or at least not in the regions I've lived in.

Hats is.

Where did I complain? Please tell me. You asked where the custom came from. I provided answers. You're welcome.

You can do what you want.

Apologies.

You came in later and I lumped you in with those complaining, the posters to whom I asked that question.

Sorry for any misunderstanding of your position or possible offense.

Many of you guys aren't ready for hat ownership. If you have one you should turn it in to the Hat Authority.
