Hat Lessons, Anybody?

Men's Borsalino Beaver Fur Felt Fedora Hat - The Ultimo Broad Brim
When making movies in which people wore hats other than baseball caps, costume designer Louise Frogley says: “The [male actors] didn’t know how to wear them, didn’t know how to put them on or take them off, didn’t know what to do with them when they were off. I had to give individual hat classes. They had no idea what to do.”

She says the casualness of today was unheard back in the the late 1950s, early ’60s, and also that:

there was a desire then to be grown-up. It was considered a good thing. Now everyone wants to be 10. You see guys on skateboards, and they’re in their late 20s or 30s.

Well, you don’t see me on any skateboards, Louise. No way, no how. At least, not without my hat. 🙂
