etiquette 4 hats

( italic r stolen paragraphes from the net)
When a gentleman “dons” his hat to leave or “doffs” his hat to a lady, his actions are being described by two British colloquialisms that come from contractions of the phrases “do on” meaning “to do”, and the Middle English “doffen”, which became “don off” meaning “to do off”! 
Hats are tipped, (or doffed) slightly lifting the hat off your forehead, when meeting a lady (remove your hat if you stop to talk), or to “say” to anyone, male or female – thank you, excuse me, hello, goodbye, you’re welcome or how do you do.

you’re welcome to my life, cause there is room for u and your hat, pet books and all the supplies u need in your daylight days to make it function, don me then, i don u back and help yourself some bread.

Tipping of the hat is a conventional gesture of politeness. This hat tipping custom has the same origin as military saluting, which came from the raising of medieval Knights face visors to show friendliness. 
Hats are worn less now, but at the turn of the 20th century, all adults wore hats whenever they left the house. It was a matter of good personal hygiene, since hats were a protection from industrial dirt. 
Hats are removed when inside, except for places that are akin to public streets, like lobbies, corridors, and crowded elevators (non-residential). In a public building (where there are no apartments) the elevator is considered a public area. 

You may choose to remove your hat in a public elevator, but in the presence of a lady your hat must be removed.

in a presence of a lady in a public elevator there is an aquarium of events to develop, actually

A gentleman takes off his hat and holds it in his hand when a lady enters the elevator in any building that can be classified as a dwelling such as an apartment house or hotel. He puts it on again in the corridor.

…ohh if only the man would hold the hand of the lady as she enters the elevator and ask her politeness: -what is you’ve been reading lately?, what usic have u’ve been hearing lately? i want to take care of your hair one day … come, come here, wanna show u something *as he looks for it inside his jacket’s pocket.
