Meyer the Hatter on St. Charles Street- Men’s Hats(2 photos)

The South’s largest hat store-Meyer the Hatter.  Every time I walked by I was drawn to it.  The display of hats triggered memories of my grandfather, my father, all sporting hats. And women wore hats, too, a little net veil with velvet dots, a pillbox with combs, a wide brim.  Just thinking about hats and who buys them, wears them now.  Hat boxes with a twisted thick cord to carry, stored high on a  closet shelf.  Who remembers hat-wearing?http://www.meyerthehatter.com/meyer/
