A Tip to the Past
This blog marks the demise of the cap and particularly the hat.
This picture was taken of a rare hat-shop in Dorset U.K.
It shows the world of the Fedora, Trilby, Snap-Brim, Borsalino and Panama.Such elegant creations compared to the Base Ball and Wool 'Tea Cosy" cap.
We should also mourn the loss of the full-length coat , which partnered the hat on outdoor missions.
Perhaps , with the increase in energy costs ( 30% lost through your head ) and possible colder conditions , our noble wool and felt friends will make a return to our streets and pavements. We shall see, although I am not brimful of confidence.
