Hats Galore

Yesterday marked opening day for the Del Mar horse races. Opening day for the horse races also brings along with it a long-standing tradition for women to wear their custom-made hats. We’re not talking about regular hats but really, really, really fancy hats. Peacocks would have been put to shame.

I saw one woman wearing a hat with a giant horse statue it, doubtless not comfortable at all. If only Veblen were alive today to write about the Del Mar hats and their ceremonial purposes.
