The New Hat

I must admit I find it a little bit hard to believe that the whole family got that excited over the breadwinner’s new hat even back in the days when men wore hats. I mean, they look like he just won the big lottery. I love the dreamy look on his face though, as though he thought that hat would change his life for ever – Ted 😉

Baby, take off your coat…real slow
Baby, take off your shoes…here, I’ll take your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
Go on over there and turn on the light…no, all the lights
Now come back here and stand on this chair…that’s right
Raise your arms up in to the air…shake ’em
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
Suspicious minds are talking
Trying to tear us apart
They say that my love is wrong
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
They don’t know what love is
I know what love is

In context:
Queen Victoria visited a hospital once and stopped at a bed with a dark haired woman with a new-born baby with fiery red hair in her arms. “My guess is, the father is a redhead” the Queen  said amiably and the woman in the bed answered “I don’t know. He had his hat on.”

Clearly, New York City in the 19th century was a veritable hotbed of invention with reference to men’s hats: Stephen Martine of Staten Island had perfected the Sunshade Hat, and there was the East Williamsburgh Head Muff as well. A third, and very worthy, contender for Most Innovative Men’s Headgear in Victorian New York is shown at the left: Fox’s Reversible Cap.

Brigitte Bardot buys hats a couple of times a week. This happens in Paris, at Jean Barthot’s, the man who creates hats for the likes of Soraya and Sophia Loren. – Bardot tries to find a hat that will make her un-recognisable (as if that would be possible – Ted).
Her dream is to be able to walk around without being recognise. At least that’s what she says.

Oh no, not this one. Do you think I’m a cowgirl.

01582_bb_03
S’il vous plait. Not that one either. Put it on a circus clown instead.

What a creation, what style. Let me have 10 – 12 of these.

The Norwegian magazine "NÅ"
No 51 – December 7th. 1963.

Hmmm. – In this outfit I almost look like Greta Garbo.

01582_bb_04
There you go! Finally a hat that fits right.

01582_bb_06
Veil, makes me look sophisticated. Don’t you think.
