Ever since Banana Republic launched their Mad Men collection last year, I’ve been trying to get B into a fedora.
The 2011 response to this proposition was a flat ‘No’ but now that he is going to need hats after the surgery, things might change. I probably don’t need to add that these are not exactly the circumstances in which I want my wish granted.
I’ve been looking at the vast array of men’s hats available. Some are an obvious NO eg. trapper (Fargo), top (Fred Astaire), cowboy (JR Ewing), pork pie (Pete Doherty). I’m not a fan of baseball caps at all. But what of the other options?
Or are hats themselves wrong? Did Men Without Hats provide the world with a clue to sartorial dressing as well as their hit Safety Dance?
