well you didn't answer the actual question – is it kapelusze and not kapeluszy because it's inanimate (one)? image

I do not why, but for some reason, I thought the question was, why isn't the plural nominative=accusative form of kapelusz, ending with -y.

the reason why it is accusative =nominative here is, because it is not masculine personal plural noun. All masculine inanimate nouns are also not masculine personal, so you are right.

Am I really hearing /ne/ instead of My or is it just my ignorance?

I wrote 'we are wearing' and was marked wrong. Is it really wrong? Is there a difference between 'we wear' and 'we are wearing' in Polish? I get this wrong quite often ...

The following verbs distiguish habitual from progressive action: biegać/biec, jeździć/jechać, pływać/płynąć, nosić/nieść, wozić/wieźć, latać/lecieć.

  • Nosimy (habitual) - We carry / we wear

  • Niesiemy (progressive) - We are carrying (Exception; it does not mean: we are wearing)

We are wearing - Mamy na sobie or Jesteśmy ubrani/ubrane w

thank you... that makes it a bit clearer. My mistake is still thinking in English and not in Polish (not that I know enough to think in Polish yet, but from learning other languages I know it has to be like that)
