"More of a Man with a Hat on"

Great vintage ad promoting hat wearing for the younger generation. My sentiments exactly. I’ve always loved men in hats and am sad that the tradition disappeared. Men are sexy in hats. Men are manly in hats. Men seem (emphasis on seem) more intelligent in hats. Men look put together in hats. Men are just plain rico suave in hats. Hats should come back!
