Above all, his hats identify the well-dressed man
By Hannah Mitchell CHARLOTTE — A man from another time, Keith Christmas wears a hat every day. Earlier this week, a brown felt fedora resting lightly on his head as he went to work in the chilly spring morning, he cut a distinguished figure on Independence Boulevard, a thoroughfare that has lost plenty of businesses but still moves a lot of traffic. Christmas loves hats so much that he operates a hat shop on Independence, an enterprise he opened four years ago, and holds on to although it’s losing money. He blames the location, not the fact that the average American doesn’t wear hats on a regular basis, at least nothing other than a ball cap. To Christmas, going hatless in public amounts to improper dress.
