Vintage Spokesman: Dixie Walker

I always marvel at vintage photographs throughout America showing men of all ages wearing those fancy hats. It makes me wonder why did it stop? Was there something in our history or culture that made everybody change this fashion trend?

Anyway, below, former Brooklyn Dodger Dixie Walker lent his name and image to a manufacturer of those hats- Champ' Hats. It is from 1947 and includes a great little cartoon created by Willard Mullin. Click the pic below to enlarge it.
