Mad Old 18th Century Bastard [May. 2nd, 2018|11:42 am]
Tony Grist
I love a tricorne hat. They had a dressing up box at the Museum and I took a selfie wearing one. I've made it into one of my icons...

I do wonder why the tricorne has never made a come-back. It's such a cool look.

Together with the red glasses, absolutely unique!

Here's Marianne Moore. She was kinda into George Washington, if I remember right, and that's what got her started with the hat.

She looks good.

Since making the post I've been on eBay and bought myself a tricorne.

My hat it has three corners
Three corners has my hat
And had it not three corners
It would not be my hat.

PErhaps it's time you brought the tricorne back.

I learned it in German as a child:

Mein Hut, der hat drei Ecken,
Drei Ecken hat mein Hut,
Und hätt er nicht drei Ecken,
So wär es nicht mein Hut.

Also, riffing off the earlier mention of Marianne Moore: The Rosenbach Museum & Library, a scant six blocks from me, is the epicenter for all things Moore, having not only her papers but her living room:
