ORIGIN OF THE CUSTOM

1. Hoods were worn outside to protect your head from dust and soot; it was interpreted as meaning your house was dirty.
2. It was seen as a sign you were leaving in a hurry.

WHY DO WE WEAR HATS?
To stay warm.

CONCLUSION
In the present we now where hoods almost exclusively to stay warm. Because of that the two reasons that originated it are now invalid. Therefore the custom should be abolished.

The custom of wearing a hood at the table being rude should not be abolished.

My reasoning are as follows:

1a) The hood represents a mysterious figure. There is a reason that it is customary that hats are not worn at formal events, and it is because you want to be seen and identifiable by other people. If you wear a hood, you get labeled as shady character. This is why it is rude to wear the hood.

1b) Even though the hood is used to stay warm, it is a negative connotation to most people. For the sake of respect to those other people, the hood should be removed at tables.
