Manolo says, the Manolo he has little interest in the politics, and tends not to give much attention to the doings of the politicians, but here he must curse the memory of the American President JFK, for having the great head of the hair, and for the killing of the practice of the wearing of the hat.
It is no secret that the Manolo he, too, is thinning on the top and that he loves the wearing of the hat, from the standpoint of both the practical and the stylistic. In the fact, the Manolo he talked about his favorite hat store just the few weeks ago here in this Manolo for the Men Blog. And, so of the course, the Manolo he has many of the hats.
We noticed the wearing of hats from Donald Rumsfeld on down at the Inauguration. Just before Christmas, shopping for socks, ties and other manly items at the top-shelf shop where Chris works in Portsmouth, NH, Tuck had glommed onto -- and we had bought as a Christmas present -- a totally awesome hat. Every time we see him in it, we go breathless (thus no photos yet, but we're working on it).
Then, a coupla weeks back, subwaying into Boston, we noticed a well-dressed State Street type sporting a similar topper. Is this a trend? Does it say something about the economy? The morality of our national psyche? Probably just a swinging back of the pendulum, but there's nothing more dashing than Tuck in his gray/brown fedora.
