I spent last weekend in sunny New Orleans, eating and drinking way too much.  While I was trying to walk off my food coma, I noticed a commonality across NOLA tourists and locals alike…trilby hats.  There were a few Panama hats (much larger and a wider brim, all turned down) and a good number of porkpie hats (much smaller, with the brim all turned up), they were vastly outnumbered by the trilby.

I haven’t been to NOLA in several years so can someone tell me if this is recent or old hat?  Pun intended…

Me: "Can I take a picture of you?" Him: "You surely can!"
