I found this photo of me from 2016 in my camera roll. I am strongly conflicted about it.
To be clear, this is a gag photo. I tried on the hat with a friend at Austin airport.
The only people who should wear cowboy hats are people from Texas and contiguous states. New York Jews definitely should not wear cowboy hats.
So this is a look I would never venture in real life.
On the other hand: Damn, I look good in a cowboy hat.

If Mel Brooks can direct Blazing Saddles, you can wear a cowboy hat.
He was also an Indian chief in that movie. Luzzim gayn!
I have a similar hat, but I never considered it “cowboy”. It’s my “Hey! It’s snowing” hat.
After posting that photo, it was pointed out to me that’s not a cowboy hat. I was fooled in part because I was in Texas when I took the photo.
Also, I realize I have a hat like it. I wear it in cold weather. Not a lot of opportunity here in San Diego, but I pack it when I travel east in winter.
