Je suis mon chapeau

The people at New Era saw you at the paddock before the second race. They saw you before you woke up this morning:

According to Gina Goss, New Era's women's product development manager, your choice in cap is a dead giveaway for the rest of your wardrobe. "You can tell where they shop, what kind of car they drive, what kind of sneakers they wear,"she said.

Try this: If you're wearing the 59Fifty, visor flat but backward, you may be an aspiring or pro skateboarder. Hot pink and glittery? You're probably a Texas girl.

If your cap is made from what looks like a comfy grey T-shirt, you're probably home in the Northeast. Does the pattern play to your Gucci handbag or Pucci scarf? You're probably a New York City or Toronto trendsetter who will be looking for something simpler next season. Prefer bright colours, maybe floral or Hawaiian-style, or crisp white? You're in Florida. If it's a plaid "trucker" you don, where the back half of the crown is mesh, or a super distressed cap, you're probably in California, maybe just in
from surfing.
Um, OK. For something a little more useful about New Era hats, check this out.

Yes! Fantastic reference, only you forgot the "outside the
men's room when I placed my bet."

No matter. I loved it anyway.
