    Ever notice it seems that every guy wore a hat of some type in the early days?

    Sure do, itīs so very conforming. My wife contends that it was because it was the simplest way of preventing debris, lice, etc. in the days before obsessive daily showers. I think itīs a silly but harmless fashion statement. During a summer job in my early twenties c1960, a supervisor lectured us with Ļa man is not properly dressed without a hat.Ļ I knew it was bs even then. I do wear a billed cap when sailing, or cleared to land late afternoon into the sun, or driving a convertible with the top down. Never when not needed, unlike some of my students during class!

    Up until the latter half of the twentieth century, men's hats were a strong indicator of social status. This article...

    provides more detail on the subject.

    Excellent article, thanks!

    The line about hat tipping reminded me of a Scientific American article, early seventies?, about a hat-tipping device patent of years past. Gentlemen could perform a hat-tip by squeezing a rubber bulb in a pants pocket. Airline was routed under back of jacket, along neck, behind ear and into hat. Ridiculous in the extreme, but I think it was granted, year unknown. Drawings showed bowler hats.

    I remember that article. There are a lot of really weird patents out there; thankfully, most of them never made it to production.
