Hat hair ought to be considered sexy

After all, it is visible evidence of a person's ability to think.

Hat hair is not fatal

I can't point to any studies.

But I'm pretty sure it's true.

Winter weather apparel and “Star Wars”

The Slice Blog is all for people covering their heads when it is raining or snowing.

But you might have noticed that some hoods are so roomy that they reach down over the forehead and cover the wearer's eyes.

Seems like a problem. But maybe these people are Jedi using the force to guide them.

Perils of going to heaviest coat too soon

Well, I suppose they are obvious.

Assuming one has multiple winter coats from which to choose, breaking out the warmest one too early deprives the wearer of the comforting knowledge that when it gets really cold, reinforcements will be ready.

Going full-parka before Thanksgiving is like Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg.

One touque over the line

You know those ubiquitous knit caps people pull down tight over their heads? Some call them skullcaps.

Well, there was a time when those who aspired to be stylish would not consider wearing same. Now these hats are practically part of the hipster uniform.

So? So that means they are, in all likelihood, about to go out of fashion again.

Too bad. They're actually fairly functional.   

Wednesday’s Slice question

A) Zero. B) 1-5. C) 6-10. D) 11-30. E) Other.
