Hats Most Important – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Dress Hat for Men from Hartford York Hats - Men's Keenan Fur Felt Trilby - The Velour TrilbyFamed author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is quoted as having said:

It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.

Elementary, perhaps – but it did strike me I’ve been echoing the same kind of sentiment for years now. Hats, currently viewed as accessories or non-essential wardrobe items, weren’t always viewed as such. In fact, it wasn’t long ago that properly dressed men and women wouldn’t venture outside without a hat.

It’s funny, then, how much of an impact a hat can have. The person who wears it either gains confidence or makes a statement; anyone seeing a passerby wearing a hat is at least aware of the hat, and makes a subconscious note of its existence or (in many cases) forms an instant and quite definite opinion.

Funny how such a small piece of clothing can become such a focal point.

By the way, did I tell you I’m thinking of writing a detective novel?
