Did JFK Kill the Men’s Hat at His Inauguration 60 Years Ago?

    Donald Trump Dark Matter
    Did you know there’s a huge debate over who killed the hat? One day, most men wore hats outside the home. Then they didn’t. Some say JFK killed the hat. Others think it was Ike. But the point is, once wearing hats was no longer a matter of social pressure, of following a norm just because…once you were told, “Hey, you don’t gotta wear that; it’s your choice,” hat-wearing among men plummeted. Certainly, there are dudes who still wear hats, some on a daily basis, some occasionally. But hat-wearing will never again be what it was, because the taboo of not wearing one can’t be restored. Americans saw that you could ditch the hat, and life went on. You can’t roll things back to, “But you have to wear a hat because that’s just how it’s done.”

    "the taboo of not wearing one can’t be restored"

    Bold claims. Sounds wishfully prescriptive, rather than descriptive. Taboo can be arbitrarily enforced, just like it can be arbitrarily done away with. Zillennials grew up in a world without shame, but shame can always be revived. And should be.

    Semantics dummy. (Look the word up if unsure)

    "Both hats and caps fall within the category of headgear and headwear accessories. "
