Once we're on the topic of Chabad headgear, can someone explain the triangle top of the crown, as opposed to the more conventional version? Is there a real reason, or is it just something that evolved?
It's represents Chabad of course. Each corner represents chachma, bina, and das :P

In a certain town they're hoping it represents the triple crown.. Cavaliers, Indians, and Browns :)

Based on the baal hatanya that holds that tzitis can be worn backwards

A older chabadsker once claimed to me that the rebba was shorter than the lowest level on the bleachers and when the rebba walked by his feet were sticking out and he personally stepped on and crushed the rebba s hat and thus was born the triangle... who knows...

An aside point of lubavitch headgear why they switched from striemlach to fedoras is a fascinating story explained in The Rebba

Bencraft has told people it was because he liked very soft hats which didn't really hold the shape
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Perhaps. I've been Chabad for over 25 years and this is my first time hearing this.

There might be a spiritual reason as well but one of the reasons are that if it's significant to you then it may not be בטול to the סכך.
Huh? The halacha is pretty clear based on shas and poskim that noi succah is Botel to the secach if it is within 4 tefachim.

Regardless, this is not an explanation as to why not decorate the walls.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some people find laminated posters of imaginary artistic renderings of rishonim beautiful; some people find their kids' tissue paper and tinfoil craft projects beautiful; some people find threads of cranberry and popcorn beautiful; some people prefer the sleek, austere look of four full, solid, clear walls.

About your first point I won't respond without looking it up, that's what my Rabbi said.

As far as your second point, I don't think their is any mention in halacha about decorating the walls, it's about decorating the Schach.

K got it slightly wrong. Was the Ari

בכתבי האר"י ז"ל נאמר שהאר"י לא היה מקפיד שצד קבוע של הטלית יהיה מלפנים או על הראש. ויש שביארו טעמו שאין זה דומה לקרשי המשכן, שהם גוף הקדושה, ואילו הטלית ואף הציציות אינן אלא 'תשמישי מצווה' (שאין בהן קדושה, אף שאין לבזותן), ואין לחלק בהן בין הראש לשאר הגוף, ובפרט שמדובר בבגד אחד. הכול מודים שמותר להחליף את הצדדים מלמעלה למטה מפני קרע או לשם נוי.

מנהג חב"ד להקפיד שהצד המכסה את הראש יכסה אותו תמיד, אך אין תופרים שם עטרה להיכר, אלא תופרים רק בטנה באזור הראש.
