My New Hat
I’ve told you about the old one, did I mention I got it second hand? It was old when I got it. About fifteen years ago.
And I’ve mentioned the new one, never had a new ‘good’ hat before. Now I’ll tell you all about it.
If that’s how this piece goes, because I never really know what I’m going to write till it’s done. Though I do usually start out with an idea it doesn’t always take the expected form.
I’ve been looking at getting one of these hats for a good while now and finally my old one gave up the ghost, so I could. It arrived last week from Canada, in a box. One of the fastest deliveries of all the things I’ve been acquiring on the net recently.
Little camera things to enable me to take the pictures I want for this site.
I don’t want to mention the hat by name because I don’t want to advertise, but I will anyway. Tilley. It’s a famous Tilley hat.
It is considered the Rolls Royce of hard wearing hats and I understand, just like a Roller was, it is hand made of the finest materials with consideration given to every aspect of hat.
The one I got is for hard wearing in the toughest (non industrial) Australian conditions. And though I haven’t been out and about much recently it will be thoroughly tested.
For this hat that will take time. Like the Roller it is just worn in when the others are worn out. But we’ll see.
There’s not a lot more to say about my new hat till I’ve worn it for a while. Then it’ll be my old hat again. Oh well!
That’s OK. I’ll do another piece on my old hat.
For all the fans of hat.
