    Patrick Stewart is back in the Star Trek universe in the titular Picard series. Good news, Panama hats still exist in the 24th century!



    Jump to 24:15 to see the teaser clip for next week's episode and Jean-Luc's spiffy hat.

    Not a traditional Hats on TV post, but instead, a beef.

    With Jeopardy.

    Being a loyal watcher of Jeopardy for many years (I go back to Art Fleming), I've always loved it for being a good Q&A show with reasonably tough clues. I also rely on them to be accurate. Last Friday, one of the questions concerned what type of hat Oddjob wore in Goldfinger. The answer, as accepted, was "Bowler."

    It's a Coachman's hat, dammit!

    Lock refers to it as either a Square Crown Coke, or Cambridge Bowler. "Bowler" on its own does seem to skirt the edges of correctness though.

    It does make me wonder though, in an alternate universe where somebody answered "square crown Coke" if the Jeopardy judges would rule it correct. It's such an esoteric name.

    Since they often do a little research and then change scores, I wonder if a contestant has ever made their case during a commercial break and gotten something changed.

    We all think timothie's prices are high...and some of us are willing to pay crazy money for a really good old hat...but this takes the cake. Last night on Pawn Stars Rick Harrison made an offer of $250,000 for FDR's grey Stetson.
    Offer was turned down.
    It's a beautiful hat, but that's a lot of dead presidents.
    Heck, that's a lot of new teeth... :D

    What's that you say? You wonder what a 24th century Space Pimp hat would look like? Picard has you covered.

    Love that, Jared. “THE NONCHALANCE IS BLOCKED IN” I think there’s a good reason we don’t see a lot of those in the vintage market, though I can see a few now calling up their hatter.

    Saw this episode of Death Valley Days last night on GRIT, it was a neat story on John Stetson. (Season 11 Ep. 5)
