Indecisive Bowler

Sometime last week I purchased this lovely little bowler hat from H & M in Manchester for £7.99. Now I’m usually not into things like this. Y’know those daft hats people wear and take themselves seriously in. I usually stick to hats I can wear ironically just in case it does look stupid then I have an excuse. But this one, I tried on for a joke and actually thought I looked pretty darn good in it in the store. Now I’ve got home though I am undecided. Can the people of Stoke on Trent take someone looking this good in a hat that isn’t ironic?? I really don’t know. People around here tend to be about 10years behind with fashion so wearing something this TRENDY might get me a few dodgy looks. I know that paints Stoke in a bad light but really, it’s not that bad here, I do love this city (in a way).Now I’m being incredibly indecisive and not sure whether I can ‘get away’ with wearing it outside. 
What do you reckon?
That last shot is my ‘indecisive’ face by the way.
I will also add it is pretty hard to take pictures of yourself in a hat. Hence why you can’t even see it very well.
Would you wear a bowler hat on a casual basis? Let me know your thoughts!

    You look great in the hat! You could always take pictures of all the funny faces and post them.

      Still need to send it back but they've agreed to one. I wouldn't be surprised if they came up with some excuse not to tho!
