Lately, the purchase of accessories has been a major part of my shopping routines. I have succumbed greatly to the belief that the right accessories could make the most banal tee shirt into something OTT or just elevating it to the ne plus ultra. And hats have been a part of the fascination.
These hats rather amuse me much to the extent as a little boy when I get overjoyed when I get those miniature die cast airplanes from my parents. There's a broad spectrum and rich melting pot of ideas that gets to me each time I come across hats of sorts. At once there's that eternal desire of mine to look like Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca or perhaps comme un marin a la Jean-Paul Gaultier or evoke Charlie Chaplin airs with a bowler hat. Hats just fascinate me to no end. So, it goes from a sailor cap to something from Guiliano Fujiwara or a classic felt hat from Borsalino, hats do evoke a certain elevation on the behalf of your ensemble. Back in the past, hats were indicative of one's social status but with how much hats have been evolving in the domain of men's fashion, I like to see it as something indicative of a man's creativity.
... and Hats clearly will speak for a difference. Let these images inspire you a little further...
And for a little more, take some time to reference a few things from the past and get nostalgic to the tune of this one below.
