Church hats, when worn properly, can make nice additions to your suit collection. These hats serve a conservatively stylish and functional purpose, and they hark back to an earlier time.
Hats are not worn as frequently nowadays, but their rarity has given rise to a sort of connoisseurship. You won't find the younger crowd wearing their finest hats to church, but this writer has witnessed a seventy-year-old man show up to church with a seemingly different hat once a week for the last year! In fact, you often won't find the younger crowd show up to church in a suit either, but I digress. A hat, while at this point somewhat obsolete, is an article of clothing in which you can take pride.
