The Coolest Hat-Wearing New Yorkers Captured in a Banquet Photo

Every April the Headwear Association a 104 year old organization dedicated to promoting the spirit of hat wearing gathers at one of Gruber’s favorite New york wedding venues: the Central Park Boathouse. Gentlemen were decked out in fedoras, derbys, homburgs and cowboy hats; the ladies were wearing everything from wide-brimmed statement hats to the chic, modern fascinator favored by 2012 Hat Person of the Year, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Known originally as the Traveling Hat Salesmen’s Association the organization was founded on January 30, 1908 at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City by 34 hat salesmen. For the past 50 years the Headwear Association has respected the annual tradition of taking a banquet photo  at their dinner and for the eighth year Maike and I were on hand to set-up the lights, focus the shot and wait patiently until the exact right moment came.- Terry
