I’ve always had a hat fascination but lately I think it’s become an obsession. A hat is a great way to finish off crisp tailored attire. There’s something about it that adds a cool sophistication to a smartly suited look. But it can also add a bit of pizazz to casual attire as well. This versatility is part of the reason that I’ve been drawn to hats lately. It adds another dimension to my looks.
Recently I was asked to write an article about hat styles to choose if you’re moving away from the baseball cap. Surprisingly, I was never really a baseball hat kind of guy although I’ve owned and worn my share of the popular cap. Nor did I really know much about the different types of hat styles. I just seemed to go with what I liked.
When in doubt it’s always a good idea to seek the advice of an expert if there’s something you want to learn about. Believe it or not there are actually real people who can teach you a thing or two. You don’t always have to opt for Wikipedia. In my case I sought the advice of Ari Harris from Goorin Brothers in Georgetown. Ari is knowledgeable on hats and the Georgetown boutique has a great selection to choose from.
Thanks to her, I was able to get my article out but now I’m ready to up my hat game. I don’t think this hat fascination is likely to go away anytime soon. I think I look pretty good in the ones she picked out for me.
What do you think? Which should I choose? I’d love to hear your comments on my hat fascination.
