Most people recognize the fedora in their two most popular colors, gray and brown. Black hats are for FUNERALS, WEDDINGS and TUXEDOS gents, so leave that one at home most nights. For people starting out with a new hat, yes get a gray hat first, it will go with anything! But once started, branch out a little, bold colors and some good coordination can make for a smashing ensemble.
