This is a nice old picture of Mark Twain, or Samuel Clemens. I really like the hats. I wonder when people stopped wearing hats. I can remember in the 1960's my dad wore a hat not unlike the one on the right. A fine hat was an integral part of a business suit. I think by the 1970's, I don't remember men wearing dress hats. Maybe it is just me, but I think people wearing hats were more gentlemanly, and dignified. I think it is time we bring the dress hat back, and the civility that went with it.
