I was just talking to my grandmother (who was born in 1928 or 29) recently, and I found it interesting to note that she said that her father and older brothers never wore hats, at least that she knew. Also, apparently my grandfather never wore a hat either. He fought in WWII, so I would have thought him a prime fedora candidate. I was wondering if any of you had learned of things similar to this. By the way, my grandmother is first generation Baltimore Italian, and my grandfather was second generation German, also from Baltimore.
