How about this? Alternatively get a really cheap and nasty wig...

The same is true of people who wear hats while driving cars........... :sneaky:

Only option then is to wear a turban. :D

I would suggest either a Soviet Politburo hat, or a Pakol.

My recommendation is a stopover in Istanbul. I can give suggestions for bespoke hatters there. Waering a hat became a political symbol in the 1920s under Ataturk. Hats-modern. Other headgear - reactionary. People were hanged for wearing the wrong headgear !

Re: I need a hat
 
Thanks for all suggestions so far. Watched Top Gear on iPlayer last night, and Hamster was at one point wearing what looked like a nubuck flat cap--looked ok. However, the immediately-limiting factor is choice of shops (sweet FA where I am right now), so will have to see what's available in Casablanca in a few weeks, and if I can't find something suitable wait till I get home in the summer.

Although I do agree with The Dean in that most men who wear a hat indoors look stupid, but there is that occasional exception...

Measure your head and get it online?

Just get something that uses a proper size, like the US/UK sizes and not go by S/M/L etc, as those tend to be well different depending on the hat, but a UK 57/US 7 is pretty exact for instance.

At least in my experience, they've all been bang on and it's only been the ones in medium/large that have been well off despite them saying what the range of sizes that make the banding.

Well, I guess the good news is that you have got through the mid-life crisis alive.

Tommy Cooper. Everyone else wearing a hat indoors looks like a twat.
