No Survivor is a Real Survivor without a Warm Hat

Postby Mike Brooks » Sat Mar 01, 2008 6:43 pm

There have been times spanning many centuries when no man was a real man without a hat. An no woman was a real woman without a hat too.

Hats are often personal trademarks of the people who wear them. According to the place and time hat fashions varied - the tricorn hat of the eighteenth century French, the tophats and then later fedoras, the pillbox hat, and baseball caps so loved by the Americans. And of course the ubiquitous American cowboy hat continues to be in favor for both men and women throughout the world.

Through the ages hats have been worn for adornment, rank and personal protection. Hats have also been used as protection from the elements of cold, heat, wind, rain and snow.

Knights proudly wore plumed helmets into battle - and in the battle for survival no survivor is a real survivor without a hat. Specifically a warm hat.

All your body heat escapes thru your head so wear your hat when its cold.
