Hasidic Jews are a subcategory of Orthodox Jews. The majority of Hassidim wear long coats, while most other Orthodox Jews wear regular suits. On Sabbath and festivals, Hassidim wear a fur hat called a streimel, while other Orthodox Jews wear hats more similar to standard styles.
No, not all Jewish men wear a skull cap (also known as a yarmulka or a kipa). Orthodox Jewish men always wear a head covering, although there are other types of hats that are perfectly acceptable, such as a fedora. But not all Jews are orthodox. Reform Judaism does not require this.
Orthodox Jewish women cover their hair in public once they're married. One way to do this is to wear hats.
Orthodox Jews wear clothing that completely covers them up.
Shtreimels or Boyar Hats.The Shtreimel or Boyar Hat that many Ultra-Religious Western European Orthodox Jews wear is a result of their ancestors having lived in Russia and Poland, it is not a "Jewish" custom. These Jews wear such hats in recognition that wearing such hats is indicative of higher status and more formal dress (the same way that a number of Western European Jews wear Top Hats). However, many Russians and Poles no longer wear the Boyar Hat since it is out of fashion (in much the same way that few Western Europeas wear Top Hats anymore).
The normal custom is that hats are only worn outdoors, and since weddings are normally held indoors, people will not be wearing hats. Some exceptions exist, for example, in a wedding of orthodox Jews, the men will be wearing the skullcap or kipa which they are religiously required to wear all the time. Sikhs always wear their turbans. Christians, however, have no religious obligation to wear hats.
Orthodox Jews cover their heads as a reminder that God is above. This can be done with a kippah or yarmulka (cap). Wearing a hat is a sign of dignity, just as you wouldn't be surprised to see a senator wearing a hat.Why some Orthodox Jews wear a big hat, is perhaps based upon the European region they originated from (Poland, Galicia, etc.), and/or to be recognizable as belonging to a particular subgroup within the various Hassidic customs.
Depending on how Orthodox you are, decency varies. Orthodox Jews dress in long sleeves that cover at least to their elbows, and skirts that fall at least to their knees. Usually they'll wear stockings. Married women wear head covers like hats or sheitels (special wigs or decorated caps). Women don't wear trousers or shorts.
Jewish men are commanded to cover their head in respect to God at all times, especially while praying, or at a religious event or service. The main form of head cover is a Kippah, or Yalmukah. However, only Orthodox Jews wear Kippahs at all times. Most Reform, Conservative, and some Modern Orthodox Jews do not wear kippahs at all times, and only wear them while at Temple, or another religious event.
There are different Orthodox Jews who dress in this manner. The Hassidim will typically have a beard, a full-length coat (suit jacket of knee-length) and a distinctively-styled hat. The Yeshiva community, and some Orthodox Sephardim also, will typically have a beard, a short (regular length) suit jacket and a regular hat (fedora).

Clothes. There isn't really a particular garment assigned to Jews in general and only a few types of orthodox Jews (such as Chasidim and Haredim) dress differently and live separately from the goyim (non-Jews).
No it does not. However. Many Orthodox Jewish men only wear black Kippot. Non-Orthodox and some Modern Orthodox Jews wear any color or pattern.
No. Pigs are NOT kosher.
That depends on the countries and on whether the Jews were orthodox or Reform. In Germany, for example, the majority of Jews were NOT orthodox and dressed very inconspicuously - as in many other countries.
A hat or a skullcap. Many Orthodox Men wear top-hats with skullcaps underneath. Any man in a synagogue, regardless of whether he is Jewish or not should wear a skullcap out of deference to the sanctity of the space.
According to Orthodoxy, women do NOT have to cut or shave their hair. Most orthodox women will wear scarves, hats, or wigs that cover all or most of their hair.
Jews wear hats or caps in order to be aware of God's presence. Married Jewish women cover their hair for purposes of modesty.
Orthodox Jews wear phylacteries as a reminder of their Scriptures.
Yes, ALL Orthodox synagogues do, but in the other synagogues, some non-Orthodox Jews will wear their own.
Jews from Hasidic and other eastern European orthodox sects dress in the style worn by their sect's leader or in the traditional clothing of their native town in Poland, Russia or elsewhere in Europe. These hats, belts, boots and other clothing identify them as members of the group to themselves and to other sects.
Jews wear a Kippa or Yarmulke "those little hats" as a sign of reverence for Gcd - as it's considered impolite in Judaism to be bareheaded in His Presence.
