Pass The Hat

Cowboy Hats from Hartford York Hats - Men's Stetson Straw Western Hat - The Open RoadThe late American dancer and teacher, Louise Brown, once said: If you can’t return a favor, pass it on.

That’s kind of like recycling, and I do that as much as possible–including with hats I don’t wear anymore. When you’ve got as many favorite hats as I do, it’s hard to part with any of them. But it’s even harder to see them, lonely and headless, waiting for me to wear them.

So (at least until I grow more heads), I have a strict policy. Once I reach my maximum number of hats (which number changes depending on my mood), I gift those I haven’t worn for more than a year to people I think might give them a good life.

The adoption interview process is admittedly lengthy and can be harrowing–more than one potential hat-adopter has been turned away (you know who you are, mom).

Pass on your old hat whenever you buy a new one. It’s good for the earth; your friends love you; your hats will be atop someone’s head where they belong; and everyone will think of you as generous and environmentally-correct, when in fact you just wanna buy more hats.
