Yup, paid to write articles on subjects he obviously knows nothing about. It might have been interesting if he'd familiarized himself with the subject, worn a fedora in the manner a fedora is meant to be worn and reported on his experience, as we do. But that would take time and effort, and he already has an unfounded opinion, and objective journalism is dead, so why bother?

My wife and I were walking home from synagogue today, and coming towards us were a number of young men in black hats (common sight in my neighborhood).
We stepped aside to let them pass. My wife then asked if I heard what one of them just said to his friend. I didn't hear a thing. He said to his friend "did you see that man's hat? That is a real beauty". So I guess they
liked my custom VS.

Maybe it will dawn on them that they don't have to wear the same black Borsalino all the time.


Sent directly from my mind to yours.

So a few weeks ago I walk in to my local gas station. I was wearing my Caribou Temple. Young Indian guy behind the counter says. "That hat is awesome! I watched you since you got out to pump gas." I said thank you.

He then asked "where do I get that hat?"

I wrote down the name and where he can find it online.

Fast forward to last night. I pulled up to same gas station. When I walked in same guy said "hey it's hat guy! I ordered my Temple and it should be here any day now!"

Then he looks at my Whippet and says "wow! I like that one even better!" He handed me his notebook to write down the info again.

It seems I am single handedly bringing back fashion in my area one hat and one gas station guy at a time.

Cool, there's a Raymond Carver short story in that somewhere.
