Serpico's hat.







I've mentioned before how cool I think Al Pacino's portrayal of Frank Serpico is, the trendiest hippy copper ever. One thing that grabbed me was one of his many hats, the white bucket hat being my favourite. It's different to the usual type, narrow, longer, something good to hide under and something you should only really wear with a beard. Whilst searching for one I gathered this is probably just a sailor's cup hat turned down on itself. I finally found someone who made these by hand over in the US, a little more advanced than the sailor hat, customised for a better fit. I already love it.
