Fashion is as eternal as the human need for clothing. But hats remain a discretionary element in the modern age. A hat today reflects the true essence of its wearer far more than does a pair of fitted trousers, shoes or a tailored jacket. To wear a hat is a genuine statement of character and personality in our times, and the boldest among us seem to lead, quite literally, with their heads.
