I was reading another thread on the lounge and saw a picture of Jughead from the Archie comics. It made me wonder, "what the heck is he wearing on his head?" So, I looked it up--Wikipedia to the rescue(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jughead_Jones): Jughead's hat Jughead is almost always seen wearing his trademark gray crown beanie. This type of crown-shaped cap often puzzles modern readers, but was popular among boys in the 1930s and 1940s. It was made from a man's felt fedora hat with the brim trimmed in a zig-zag and turned up. In the 1920s and 1930s, such caps usually indicated the wearer was a mechanic; Goober Pyle from The Andy Griffith Show (who worked at the local gas station) wore a similar cap. The thug played by Jeff Goldblum in Death Wish also wears a similar beanie. Jughead's beanie was recolored in black when he appeared in the Filmation cartoons. In The New Archies, his beanie was recolored pink. As noted, above, Goober from "The Andy Griffith Show" also wears one, and I was wondering what it was. Now I know. Now, I just want to know how anyone thought, "Hey, if I take a hat and cut into a kind of crown, I'll look really cool!"
