Also from my collection (a recent acquisition): Here we have President Coolidge again (along with other Presidents), comparing the "Presidential Styles" on display for the Inauguration. Much is made of Eisenhower breaking precedent by wearing a Homburg. Also note that Kennedy DID IN FACT wear a hat at his Inauguration!!! (Truman wore a topper too, but this photo was from inside the presidential limo where he had it on the seat next to him.) News-wire photo dated Jan 16th 1965..........

I am a big fan of classic movies and tv shows. That being said, I enjoy the 1970’s show the Rockford Files. It is especially enjoyable for me because it brings back many pleasant memories of watching with my family (mainly Mom and myself) when I was a child. I am also classic car guy and a fan of fedoras. Couple the fore mentioned all together and it makes the show a “home run“ in my opinion.

Jim Rockford’s father Rocky, played by Noah Beery Jr. wears what appears to me to be a Stratoliner with a square unsymmetrical bash. It is an awesome looking hat. It fits the persona of the character perfectly. I’m not sure if his hat has been discussed here or not, so I figured I would post something about his fedora.

Although it appears that fedoras are old hat to Hank and Johnny.
