Does Your Hat Wear You?

Hartford York Hats and Accessories for Men and Women - Men's Scala Fur Felt Fedora Hat - The TracyPossibly the best “how to wear a hat” statement to date was written by Euan Ferguson in his Observer article, Finally Old Enough to Wear a Hat.

In what is likely the longest sentence that will ever be read by me, Mr. Ferguson says:

I might go soon and get a proper [hat] again, and this time wear it, not let it wear me, and to do this all I need to remember is that I am wearing it to keep my head warm, and dry in the rain, and perhaps but only a relatively little bit because it is stylish, in the same way that I can now wear [suspenders] simply to hold up my trousers rather than to make a statement about how roundly unlikeable I am: just remember these things, and remember, too, with a soft and I would hope not too mournfully sarcastic little huzzah! somewhere in the background, that I am getting older.

We’re all adults. We have the power. Put on your hat and wear it.

Thanks for reading,
