Dress has changed a bit between Skyfall, the about to be released James Bond film, and 1963's From Russia With Love. For example, among the less remarkable differences, I will wager that Daniel Craig is hatless throughout this years' film, unlike the trilby wearing Sean Connery in the screen capture from the earlier production.
Craig would find it difficult to keep his hat on of course, given all his jumping from one explosion to the next in the teasers for Skyfall. The best hat wearing occasions are usually more sedate ones: shading the head from the sun and keeping it dry in a sprinkle (the downpour that occurred while the San Francisco baseball franchise was completing its National League Championship Series victory over the visitors from St. Louis yesterday was better suited to umbrellas). Still, the producers of Skyfall could easily have had Bond hatted throughout the action scenes, stimulating headwear sales for most of the coming decade, and almost certainly would have done so had some hatmaker offered a suitable product placement fee.
I watched the baseball game (did I mention that the San Francisco team won the series?) from the comfort of my apartment, however the weather provided an excuse to emulate Mr Connery with a brown Lord's hat above my own gray suit during the afternoon's scattered showers. It was a good time to wear a hat.
