The Monterey Jazz Festival: Blues, Jazz and Hats

Hartford York Hats for Men & Women - Men's Henschel Leather Patch Porkpie - The Patch PorkpieStylish hats have always been integral to The Monterey Jazz Fest, but the cool caps were most plentiful Saturday, according to the Monterey County Herald — “part fashion statement and part as defense against the blazing sun.”

French-style caps, full-brimmed hats, hats with feathers, pink hats, black hats — every kind of hat imaginable was worn proudly. The jazz festival is hardly a costume party, though. “For me, it’s not about matching my hat or my clothes to the music,” said Genie Chochrane of Seaside. “This is the way I dress. I love wearing hats. I wear them everyday.”

My sentiments exactly, Genie. I wear hats because it’s how I dress–it’s just part of who I am. (And because they look really cool).
