Channing Tatum Loves Hats (But They Don’t Love Him)
Here is an example of Colin Farrell wearing a beanie with aplomb. (We won’t mention the sweatband or the necklace). Notice that we can see his ears and hair sticking out, this is key to making a beanie work.
Channing has a habit of wearing the beanie too far down his head, which makes me think he could be smuggling an alien or a conehead in there …
…or too far up. (Maybe it was a really windy day and it blew his beanie off?) Sometimes he keeps his ears tucked in, like, I know it’s probably a cold day in New York but it’s a beanie not ear muffs dude.
Here is an example of Leonardo DiCaprio wearing a flat cap. It makes him look like a grown up, suave and ever so slightly incognito.
I don’t know if Chan was going through a flat cap phase but he has a little beard with all of them. There is a lot of herringbone and houndstooth action going on, so it isn’t the same hat.The off centre bend is weird. Leo doesn’t have that. (Maybe he sat on all of them?)
Here is an example of Justin Timberlake wearing a Fedora. He loves the Fedora and makes it work for him. Giving him an intelligent nerdy-cool chic thing going on. As much as Tatum whats to be that hipster guy, he just isn’tI get secondhand embarrassment from looking at this. The costume department on The Vow must have hated him to put him in that hat.
Everything is wrong with this, the hat, the wellies the Range Rover and the ‘rock’ hand.
Baseball cap (forwards)
Here are examples of Ben Affleck and Justin Bieber wearing a Baseball cap (forwards), two different ways. The curve bill and snapback way. One style makes your head look massive and the other makes your head look tiny. You can work out which is which.
Baseball cap (sideways)
Here is an example of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air in a baseball cap (sideways). This is never a good look for anyone, it wasn’t cool when Will Smith wore it that way in 1992 and it isn’t a good look now.
Channing just looks like an adult baby.
Or a hip-hop redneck hybrid.This is also the case for sideways police hats, a bit too much sass.
Baseball cap (backwards)
Here is an example of Robert Pattinson wearing a baseball cap (backwards). He looks like poochy.
The hat style that Channing can actually do well is the baseball cap (backwards). He can wear it and manage to not look like Marky Mark (which is surprising given the toplessness).
In short if Tatum is going to wear a hat it should only be a baseball cap (backwards) or else he just can’t make it work. He is not Taylor Swift.
