Men in Hats

Everyone knows about the ladies and their Red Hat Society, but not much is said about the men’s groups of (mad) hatters that have been popping up around the country.

Hartford York Hats - Men's Makins Woven Panama Straw Porkpie Summer Hat - The Panama Pinch Porkpie 4There’s ROMEO, for instance, which stands for Retired Old Men Eating Out, just a bunch of old guys, getting together, doing nothing but shootin’ the breeze in hats. Then there was the poker-playing Black Hat Society in Atlantic City, formed so that they too could go out and do things, leaving their spouses behind, just like the girls in their red toppers do.

I’ve been tossing around a few ideas for a society of my own, like the Yatters (that’s for guys in hats with yachts), or maybe the Medoras would be a hit (that’s for men in fedoras admiring menorahs, of course). I could even call it the Besterns (for those who like their westerns best), but then we’d probably get stuck holding all our meetings in a certain hotel…

Thanks for reading,
