I was hesitant to post about hats again but when you see such an example I have to jump in.
Mr. Howard's hat is creased to near perfection.
You rarely if ever see hats that are pre-creased by the manufacturer in that style.I have a few that were custom made. Most times it's a pinched front with too low a crown.
As for movie stars who wore hats well a few come to mind, Cagney, William Powell, even some lesser known character actors. Their hats were creased and worn beautifully. Never rumpled with smooth flowing lines. I've spent hours and sometime days working a hat until I was completely satisfied with the outcome.
Too bad Mr. Howard ended his life at such a young age.
