In an article called The Inaugural Top Hat Tradition, Kate Michael of The Examiner wonders aloud if Barack Obama will bring back the top hat tradition. The last President to wear a top hat during an inauguration ceremony was John F. Kennedy, back in 1961, and with the nearly inevitable Camelot comparisons between JFK and Obama, a top hat worn by this President-elect would certainly seem full circle.
Speaking of Presidential hats, we’ve got the limited edition Presidential Pinnacle fedora from Stetson on hand. This is the hat that our cohort Josh from HatForObama.Com is trying to give to the President-elect. For every one of these hats sold over the next several weeks and months, $25 will be donated to the Hats Off for Cancer Charity with a goal of selling 2009 numbered, certificated hats for a total of $50,000.
Hopefully Hat No. 1 will go to the First Man himself.
Thanks for reading,
CEO Hartford York
