I think I'll recommend you these two "men's hats" and "mens hats" .......over the "man hat".

I can't imagine 'Man Hat' being a more popular keyword over 'Mens Hats'. In cobtrast Hat suppliers works better that Hats Suppliers.

I agree. I just thought I'd better get a second opinion.

for me it is always plural form of my keywords.
pleople are in the habbit of using plurals forms mosts ofs thes times. ;)

Not always the case, looking at my stats I see
suppliers of widgets
makers of widgets
I'll almost guarantee that regional dialect plays an important role as much as the type of customer. Consumer may search singular whilst trader would search plural.
Personally, I'd optimise two seperate pages for both styles.

When you use the Overture KW tool, you should be aware that it uses a form of "stemming"! (It "reduces" your "men’s hats" to "man hat".)
There are other tools that don't stem, like WordTracker and the Google AdWords estimator; for this reason alone I'd always use multiple sources when researching keywords!

Good advice. Here's a thread with several posts about the differences between Google, Overture, and Wordtracker.
The best keyword tool?
Though the Google AdWords Keyword Tool doesn't give numbers, it does give the best idea of how people actually search. The tool is at...
For men's hats, I'd enter the following terms, one at a time, to get suggestions...
Be sure to optimize for some of the longer phrases. They're more precise, easier to rank on, and while less often searched, will generally "convert" (ie, lead to sales) more often than a very general term like "men's hats."
