Hats & Neckties on CBS Sunday Morning.

One of my favorite weekend past times is watching CBS Sunday Morning. The program tends to have an eye for classic style and covers lots of old school Americana. With two great stories for men, this weekend’s episode did not disappoint. First came a history of men’s hats, which I found to be extremely interesting. Later was an opinion piece from Ben Stein about the previously discussed demise of the necktie.

Go out and get yourself a hat at JJ Hat Center. Just try not to look like Timberlake or Brad Pitt and please wear a suit.

    Ben Stein makes me giggle. But I have to agree with what he says. I have more respect for a man in a tie than I do for a man without.

    In terms of hats, I can’t live with out them. A few friends picked up a great Bailey’s fedora for me at Heimie’s Haberdashery in downtown St. Paul. If you are ever in the Twin Cities, I highly suggest stopping by.
