Bring on the Hats!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

porkpie hatI’m growing fonder of hats lately and so I wanted to get to know a bit more about them. That might sound a little odd but really there’s a lot to hats. More than just the different types, there’s a whole set of rule for hat etiquette. As you all know from several of the pictures on this blog I’m already an avid fedora wearer but now I’m on the hunt for a porkpie hat. It’s similar to the fedora but instead of the pinches in the crown the porkpie has a flat top as well as a shorter turned up brim. The more I see of this hat the more I want to test it out and see if I can pull one off. Speaking of pulling hats off, I did a quick Google search and found a helpful list from Emily Post on when you should take your hat off. Check them out if you plan on joining me in the hat revolution.

Men – Hats can be left on…
