Red Hat/No Knickers Folklore Verified

dunnville showIt turns out that what I’ve been telling audiences for years – that red hats used to be hard to come by because it was thought that women in red hats might not be wearing any knickers – was not only true, but very taken seriously by some. Today at our hat show in Dunville, a woman reported a ‘red hat’ incident that occurred years ago in England. The woman’s mother was wearing a red hat when she and her husband stepped onto a bus and overheard a couple of Irish guards casting aspersions on her character. The husband defended his wife’s honour, and when she returned home alone and the children asked where their father was, her response was “in the clink”.

Care to share a hat story of your own? I’d love to hear about it. Please contact me in the form below:
