Thanks, Pharrell.

Ever since Pharrell’s Hat Heard ‘Round the World, we’ve been noticing more and more wide-brimmed hats on the red carpet and at events.

Last night, Diddy had a party to celebrate his new Deleon tequila at Cedar Lake in New York City, and the Hat Brigade was out in full force. Swizz Beatz, Kenny Burns, the party host and others showed up with old-school, wide-brimmed hats. When is the last time this many men at a party were donning fedoras, 1965? Not counting gatherings of hat-happy redditors, of course.
