At one time, men wore hats everywhere - from work to the baseball park to church on Sunday, a man never went without one. There is something about a man in a suit and hat that is dignified, important, commands respect and perhaps is dashing and debonair.
And I don't mean a baseball cap put on backwards.
Wouldn't it be great if hats made a comeback? Hats like the Fedora, the Porkpie, the Bota, the Derby, the Borsalino.
Gone are the days when a gentleman wearing a hat used to remove it in a ladies presence or tip the brim out of respect. A class act who is confident and comfortable - and class does not mean someone has to be affluent, just polite. The wearing of hats symbolized a cultural and civil atmosphere.
Today there is little maturity reflected in young men's clothing. We see bandanas, doo-rags and baseball caps on backwards with pants sagging - a sign that young men have lost respect for themselves and for women.
