I know hats were all the rage back then, but only a comedian could wear a hat like that.

When I saw the title "Honey your rides here" I expected to see this





Seth,
I guess I must be a funny guy because I have an original hat just like that.

Not really sure how or if this applies here, but I think it's hilarious. She really could find a better date but hey, he's got a nice car! (She's definitely no pig!)

The derby, or bowler, hat has an interesting and varied history itself. Wikipedia (I do not trust them totally myself), when I typed in "derby hat" took me straight to "bowler" hat (which I had already read through and saw only a barely mention of the connection to the "derby" name).
At different times in history, they have been primarily worn by the working class, elite class, or government officials. According to Wikipedia, they were more common in the USA wild West than the better known "cowboy" hats. No doubt, the working class connection is why they were used by the likes of Charlie Chaplain and Laurel & Hardy.
They are appropriate for any year model T whether you are a "funny guy" or not. I look better in a "boater" or straw hat myself. I have one bowler and about eight boaters in my collection along with several fedoras, leather helmets, sport caps, and one genuine Stetson "Tom Mix".
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

By the way, Jay. Thank you for sharing the photo! That is a great photo of my old friend Stanley.

I have the picture of Stan Laurel blown up and hanging on my wall at work. I tell every one that is me and my '21 touring. Wish mine were as nice as Stan's

The Derby and the Bowler are 2 different hats. The derby goes in a curve straight from the rim, the bowler has a vertical straight section, then a curve across the top. If that makes sense...I know what I mean, anyway. Stan is wearing a bowler.

He is probably the Geico pig. His other date was on a jet ski!

Jay, when I look at that picture of Stanley, I know I'm going to be in for a chuckle. What a wonderful legacy. Again Thank You for posting another great picture.

Sure looks like a '25-7 steering wheel on that T.

Seems like most if not all the T's they used were the 19-22 Tourings. Were they ever in any others?
