Something I can recommend to anyone who finds everyday life empty of meaning, the community is in a really good hattbutik.
In just such a I now with a bowler hat in his hand, from the classic but failed british klädfirman Dunn & Co. It is probably manufactured at about the same time as myself, therefore, in the 1960s, but I get compliments on its good condition and quality. The problem is that it is a size too small, 7 1/4. Now it must stretch.
know exactly what they are doing, I am waiting, fingers on a pork pie – making – and trying out the now outstretched hat. Other customers will present: ”Space, such you don't see often in the day!” ”No, indeed,” I say.
It is a lie. I see them all the time. On auction sites, vintage stores, on travel. Hats in general and bowlers in particular are my drug of choice. You don't want to know how many I have at home. ”What is this model?”, ask my friend and will send a picture of Winston Churchill in one stop with high, nearly square crown. ”Of course, a Cambridge,” I replied, without googling. Shoot me now!
, what's the harm to have such a drug, when there are so many worse? Well it's nice to treat yourself to something dozen stylish headgear from the 1930s, these hats will make you be a little neater in our gråbleka jämmerdal?
At this, unfortunately I have to respond sincerely with a quote: ”Deep inside you always know when you look like a jerk.”
