Hats through History
Koufax on 07/15/2008
|Ophelia knows that Hamlet is losing it because he comes to her closet "with no hat upon his head;" we know the governess in Turn of the Screw is losing it because she runs out of the house "without her hat." Through much of history being bareheaded was as unthinkable as forgetting your pants. Women's hats survive to some extent--see weddings and the Kentucky Derby--but men's hats, not counting the billed cap--are pretty much gone, done in by Jack Kennedy (a little), the blow dryer, and the hair stylist. Here's a stroll through hat history, so use your head. |
Sources include my own library of 40 hat books and Wikipedia.
