This is my new hat. It was made by Tracy Watts of New York. It’s felt, with a lower crown than a Homburg should have, and that suits me.
The thing about hats is that you have to wear them. They need a bit of rough handling to make them look good on you. At least these days when wearing a hat at all can turn heads.
This one needs a bit of rain. I wonder if she does one with an unbound brim in fur felt?
Since Wikipedia is down today, I’ll throw in a fun fact for you. Do you know why hat makers are called milliners? Because the best of them emigrated to England from Milan. The word is a bastardization of “Milaner”.
