In days gone by, a man wasn’t dressed without his hat.  He’d certainly never go to the financial district for work without a hat.  My grandfather certainly felt that way.  He kept a stash of hats on a rack in his hall closet and I never saw him leave without one.  So it made me smile to see an elderly gentleman wearing a hat on his way to work the other morning.  And I love that cell phones have cameras so I could capture the moment.

  1. L,

    My grandfather was IN the hat business with several of his brothers…Portis Hats. I have a couple of cool, art deco hat boxes and some print ads of theirs, one of which used my grandfather as the model for that season’s most dashing style!
