How would you describe your fashion and/or hat style?
Style. Good class. Pizzazz. I happily came upon the Peter Grimm Depp fedora in 2014 and it’s the only hat I wear – in tan color, which I rotate out about twice a year. It’s become an extension of me, having been recognized because of it, and unrecognized without it.
