Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach and Rav Chaim Kanievsky: Is Wearing a Hat For Davening More Important Than Davening With a Minyan?

The Mishna Berura says that a person should wear a hat during Davening because it is not the practice to appear in front of prominent people without a hat.  Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit'a says that if a person will miss Davening with a Minyan if he insists on wearing a hat it is better to Daven without a Minyan with a hat than to Daven without his hat with a Minyan. Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach argues and he holds although one should make every effort to Daven with a hat he should not give up Davening with a Minyan for it. (Alon Ahavas Shalom)

The Mishnha Berurah was commenting on the practices of his own day. Nowadays, the opposite is true. The Mishnah Berurah in the same place forbids wearing

The din is how you would walk in front of a Melech Bassar Vdom today we take off our hats like by the pledge of allignce lhavdil eleph havdolos, so the hat is not a Chiyuv

To the commentor above. Do you also think people where jeans and sneakers because they think its classy? Do women dress the way they do because they are they are "ladies". This is a generation of Prikas Ol. We don't dress this way because this is our version of respectable attire. We dress this way because we have no respect. Don't forget it was only about 10-15 years ago when every respectable working man wore a suit and tie to work every day until we became to "cool". Every honest person both jew and goy will tell you that wearing a hat is respectable but its only for geeks. Respectable is "out" Cool is "in"

"goy will tell you that wearing a hat is respectable" no Again take off our hats like by the pledge of allignce and i am sure you are aware of the shailah to Rav Moshe about Yamukahs in court another place where it is considered disrespectfull to wear a hat

Rav Moshe never took his hat off for davening.

i posted the first comment on the M.B. it was cut off. the fact that the M.B. reason for not wearing a hat does not apply does not mean that in communities where the minhag is to wear a hat for davening there is not chiyuv. A hat has become like a gartle. if its not your minhag the is no requiremnt, but if it is, than you may be obligated.

I heard from a Rav & my 4th grade rebbi, Rabbi Peretz Dinovits, that the purpose of the hat is to make a double covering. Therefore, 2-layered yarmulkas would do.

The president of the united states dresses respectably and he doesn't wear a hat. When people go in front of him, or he goes to meet other world leaders, he never wears a hat. It simply isn't the garb of respectable people anymore.

Find me 1 godol that feels its ok NOT to regularly wear a hat to shul. There is a 'jewish uniform' that yiray shomayim wear. If somebody doesnt want to emulate the yiray shomayim of our generation & find loopholes in the wording of Halacha they might be correct but are they right?

Sources:
Rav Chaim Kanievsky: "Halichos Chaim" (I:20-21)
Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach: Halichos Shlomo (Tefillah, 2:15)

It should be noted, that in the above source Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach is clearly referring to a person who's regular mode of prayer is to wear a hat and jacket. - Those not accustomed to such a form of dress, are also encouraged to attire themselves respectably, as they would when having a meeting with a king (ibid.).
