but your best man would look so good in this!
>>I can only imagine wearing this down the aisle in front of L's entire family.<<
Not to mention your entire family! It would seem to make a perfect father-of-the-groom hat, though.
It seems like the kind of hat worn by one of those guys who refuses to go without a ball cap. You've met them. They have actual conversations about breaking in a new hat and getting the crease in the bill just right. (They usually have this conversation leaning against their truck or car, which always has a girl's name.)
Not to stray to far away from the subject of how fantastic a well coordinated wedding party would look in those hats...but is there a rule of thumb for groomsmen gifts? The ring no problem, 2 mo. salary; done and done. But how much do I spend on the people who are taking time out of their busy lives, flying in from around the country, and w/o a doubt spending a small fortune on me? anybody got a suggestion?
Two nice gifts: a locally produced bottle of wine and a plane ticket.
