Up until about 60 years ago, men wore hats, and usually, suits. Women wore dresses, mostly. Even at the Piggly-Wiggly. It’s kind of sad what we have become. I worked in industrial jobs all through my career, until retiring, wearing jeans and a t-shirt, but only as a practical matter.
Look at this magnificent head covering! It’s made from white beaver felt! How many white beavers were killed to protect men from pigeons?
