I used to wear a fedora

Try Every Day #4

For most of my life, I’ve been obsessed with the fedora. It probably started with Indiana Jones, but the iconic hat became a part of my identity. People knew me as the hat guy.

I shared that love with my girl’s grandfather. He and I would order hats together and try new styles. It was something we bonded over. We lost him in 2017 and I just couldn’t put my hats on anymore.

Now, I’m that dad wearing flat caps… usually cocked off to the side or barely on my head. It’s not something that I put a lot of thought into, but it just feels wrong to not wear a hat.

Maybe some day I’ll rekindle my love for the fedora, but for now, I like my new hats and Em bought me this one, so it’s extra special.
