I can’t quite remember how old I was. But, I do remember looking at the hat on my grandfather’s head and thinking, what a cool look. Sometime later, I tried on one of his hats, and looked in the mirror. I thought the cool looking reflection staring back at me was indeed impressive. And, that was it. My love affair with hats, especially, fedoras began, and that love, i’m happy to say has not faded.
Of my two children, the youngest one has taken a liking to hats. Both girls were introduced to hats early. However, my older daughter never quite bonded with the headwear. Oh well, 1 outta 2 ain’t so bad. Kinda like that this neat tradition might be passed along.
