--Friedrich Von Schiller
The hat is the pride of cowards; for he who cannot keep his hat on before kings and emperors is not a free man.
Throughout history, one item of clothing has captured the imaginations of men and women… lending to everyday life the plumage of poetry and dreams. We wear them for ritual, for protection, for play – we put them on to symbolize our professions, our nationalities, ourselves.
From a chieftain’s sanctuary in Papua New Guinea to a Boy Scouts jamboree in Peoria, hats are the most effective and time-honored way of making a statement about who and what we are.
American Needle is proud to take its place in this celebrated and varied tradition.
