Steve Martin

Steve Martin is consistently one of the best-dressed Late Show guests.  Hats are a big part of his style.

The previous Steve Martin entry took an unexpected detour into excepts from the August 1921 issue of "The American Hatter," a trade publication that has been digitized by Google.

Of course I couldn't just repeat that idea here.  So instead, I'm providing some choice excerpts from spring 1922 issues of "The American Hatter."

That must have gone over well.

 1920?  Holy shit! 

 Thank God for caps.  I really don't know what Kansas City hatters would have done without them this past month.

MR. SALESMAN: Do YOUR horrifying visions of disembodied eyes, and eyebrows, mean that you will soon be institutionalized?  If not, what's your secret to going through life as a high-functioning lunatic?

Til next time, gum fans, I remain your competent professional hat adviser.
