    Mr. Oelbaum, while I do agree that this is certainly a trend, a fascinating one at that, I do feel that many of the people sporting colonial hats are missing the point. Whenever I am in lower Manhattan I see many a fine hat, however, they all seem to be the same style, give or take the type and positioning of the buckle. I guess what I'm asking is, are there ways to customize MY colonial hat to indicate something about me ? Can my colonial hat say something about my personality, wealth, occupation, or marital status ?
