Here’s mine (me being Waylon Lewis): On one of James’ visits to New York, Max took a fancy to his ten-gallon hat. James sent one to Perkins, and it fit perfectly. “I happened to be walking in it with a portrait painter,” Max wrote in thanking him, “and he begged me to let him paint me in it, and that never happened before I got this hat.” From that day forward, there was hardly a moment when Perkins did not wear a hat, indoors and out. Eventually he traded off permanently to a sort gray-felt fedora, size seven, which he wore so low that it folded his ears forward.
