J0428510 It seems that as soon as the bad weather comes, so do the ridiculous hats. Yes, it’s cold out there, but that’s no excuse for some of the ridiculous head gear currently on show.


Like many others, I bought a novelty KGB hat when I went to Moscow, but I have no intention of actually wearing it (except maybe to a fancy dress party). Souvenirs belong on shelves, not heads.


And what makes middle-aged people suddenly believe that they would look sensible in tasselled, multi-coloured bobble hats, deerstalkers and lumberjack hats? Most of the men look like Steve Martin in Roxanne, and the women like bit part actresses from a bad remake of Doctor Zhivago.
