Dandies Online: Inauguration Day Top Hats

The Huffington Post has assembled a fantastic slideshow of inauguration day images of a handful of former presidents wearing one of the dandiest of all accessories: the top hat. The blog suggests that it is "high time this elegant tradition came back. Do you agree?" We give our full endorsement!

I believe JFK, despite his inauguration ensemble generally skipped hats, which was one reason they began to fall out of favor in the 1960s. Too bad.
