For me, it's hats. Not pretty hats, but ones that meet my dual requirements of being relatively dull-colored yet practical, like my grey fake-fur toque, that olive drab Aussie cap I picked up over winter vacation or my beloved fedora. (That blue beanie I've been wearing all winter is an exception to the dull-colored rule because it matches the blue scarf Vogon gave me last winter.)
Anyway, I've been debating buying a Royal Mail hat from the American Science and Surplus catalog for awhile. Today I was browsing Pop's Leather (they make custom-fit leather at incredible prices) and was distracted from my Royal Mail hat fixation by their Sheepskin Flying Helmet. Could I pull that off or would I look too much like a character from Tank Girl?
This is really a gratuitous icon post for my new aviation-related icon: Dave Bryant's Aviatrix character.
