Ninetieth anniversary of a philosophical hat

Of this post we have only the title.  It's a typically quixotic and faintly silly title, all that Other Men's Flowers aspired to be, except for typical.  This would have been 49th in Tony's series of hat-related posts, one shudders to think what number 50 would have been like.  As it is, we shall never know which hat was philosophical and ninety years old.  Which is just as it should be, really.

There will be one more post this time next year, just as uninformative as this one.  But Other Men's Flowers has always striven to be complete if nothing else.

P. J. O'rourke said "A hat should be taken off when you greet a lady
and left off for the rest of your life.
Nothing looks more stupid than a hat." If only he had been around in 1922, this fashion faux pas may never have happened.

Tony might have written about Bergson's famous meeting with Einstein in 1922. Or maybe not. He has in any case, given me fun googling for what he might have intended to write.

Thank you Elizabeth. That is as sound and entertaining a theory as I think we shall get on this one. It is considerably sounder than the greater part of all comments on Other Men's Flowers and jolly well as entertaining as the posts, too. Thank you for upholding the Spirit of OMF.
