Pic of the day: Hats, Covent Garden

Pic of the day: Hats, Covent Garden

The Blue Nile named a wonderfully melancholic album after them, Frank Sinatra was never seen without one, Tommy Copper wore a particularly fine example, and after decades in the fashion wilderness, it seems that hats are slowly making something of a minor comeback, even if some people look like prize cocks in them.

Here’s a stall stuffed full of ’em at Seven Dials, Covent Garden, London WC2.
