Nick: Alright bro, let's go pick up some bitches at this bonfire!

Rick: Please don't tell me you're actually gonna wear that.

Nick: What? It's a fedora. It says I'm classy.

Rick: No it doesn't, it says "I jerk it to pictures of ponies and play cod all day because I don't even have a job" Now take that thing off and let's go.

In the first half of the 20th century, this was a hat synonymous with manly style. It was about looking cool without appearing juvenile.

In present times, the fedora is a trademark of the socially inept beta male. He is attempting to distance himself from pop culture with the distinct style of past fashion. But he captures none of the suave, and only comes off looking like an oblivious, pompous fool. This is especially the case when it's a low-quality fedora coupled with unfashionable clothes and an unkempt appearance.

Modern fedora-wearers are typically associated with the *chan internet culture and Asperger's Syndrome (aspie).

It is seen as the ultimate status symbol of the neckbeards, a hat that contains powerful information, which is coded in the motherboard, located in the liner tip of the aforementioned hat. Information such as when wil be the next cringey event (the one that's nearest to their actual location at the time), a manual of how to preserve the neckbeard in a world full of friendzoned comrades and even an almost infinite database of quotes about atheism and obscure internet forums.

It represents the class of the wearer, which is ranged from Private Neckbeard to General Brony Master. These ranks can be escalated by the wearer of the fedora by purchasing many different styles, giving them a name, and thus, reaching a far more excruciating level of stupidity (which they associate with being "edgy".

A hat that went from the sure sign of an early 1900's tough guy, to the sure sign of a 1980's and onward loser who is desperately seeking for a style to call their own (and ruining everything they touch in the process).

Among many other meanings, Fedora can also be used as a verb to describe a person that is self absorbed and believes that he is more intelligent, for the sole purpose that he does not believe in a God. Comes from an *chan joke showing a fat neckbeard wearing a Fedora stating he is more intelligent because he is an atheist.

NOTE: This is not synonymous with an atheist. A Fedora will act big headed about his atheism while an atheist just doesn't believe in a god
