Apparently a number of you were passionately interested in what kind of hat I purchased yesterday, so here you go: My new hat. It’s all white and summery, which I think well suits the location and season, and also the fact of the matter is I’m kind of sick of buying baseball caps, of which I have several at this point (and which I continue to forget to bring with me when I travel, thus necessitating the further purchase of chapeaus). This is the first non-cap hat purchased I’ve made since college when for brief and somewhat ill-advised time I wandered about in a fedora. The less said about that period of time in my life the better. However, I think this hat looks reasonable, all things considered. And it’s jaunty. What more do you want.
