[Comments] (8) : Does anyone, under any circumstances, wear a top hat anymore? No one I can think of except people pretending to be people from the past.

Update: the consensus is: "People at weddings, sometimes, and also me if they weren't so expensive."

last I can remember is the one John F. Kennedy wore at his inauguration.

And the Planter's Peanut.

They seem to be still worn with morning suits to weddings.

I have seen tails at a wedding, but never a top hat. A couple of guys wore them to proms in high school, but they didn't keep them on to dance.
I would wear one, if I could afford one.

I remember seeing Laura's uncle, who is a barrister, coming back from a fancy occasion once, and I believe he had a top hat.

If I could find a collapsable tophat to fit my budget, and a matching cane, I'd wear one all the time.

Yeah, collapsible is really the only way to go. You get to do that neat flick-POP thing, plus if you're short on flatware you can use it as an emergency plate (I do this with my own hat all the time).
