Where Did You Get That Hat?

Borsalino Braid Fedora - The MazziniProbably the best and most sincere compliment you can get about any hat–new or old–is the question: Where did you get that hat?

It’s a question tinged with envy, unlike the rather bland “I like your hat” statement. There’s an emphasis on the word “hat” in the question, and usually the admirer’s eyes are locked onto your lid. For a moment (or longer), you are of simply no import: a mannequin at best. It’s the hat that matters.

In fact, the Where did you get that hat? question is right up there in terms of laudatory remarks with the well-known saying “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” because the logical next step for your admirer (once you provide the vendor information), is for that person to procure the same hat for himself.

The next time someone asks you where you got your hat, accept the compliment for what it is: the highest praise that person can give.
