This week’s TimeOut New York features “The Most Stylish New Yorkers”, a study in sartorial imagination and possibility. We were happy to see our old friend Fritz Karch, Director of Collecting at Martha Stewart Living, wonderfully dressed head to toe in plaids. And we loved Lori Goldstein, stylist and designer for Logo Instant Chic,’s wise view of what fashion really is:

“Clothes and accessories are the paint, and you are the canvas. Experiment and play.”

But what shifted out heads the most is Malcolm Harris, Creative Director of the One Dress Project talking about the $14.99 army hats he buys at Uncle Sam’s Army and Navy: ”

“My hat serves as crown, battle cap, halo or horns, and most important, protector of my psyche.”

O-h-h-hhh. That’s what a hat can be!

And then laid our eyes on Valerie of Idiosyncratic Fashionistas sporting her replica-of-the-Guggenheim Museum hat by Ignatius Hats!
