Firstly this is a hat which belonged to my grandfather, secondly I am not mocking anyone. This thread introduction was meant to be a amusing way to start a discussion on people's favourite items. Now as far as the song is concerned it was originally Caruso's recording of "Una Furtiva Lagrima" but the song while beautiful is a bit depressing so... Captain and Tenille!At your reported 19 years of age, I find it hard to imagine that you have a hat, tweed or otherwise, old enough or sufficiently venerable to be referred to as "old" or qualified to be worthy of the Captain and Tenille's lyrical ministrations.

Other people like gloves, cufflinks or another item. Now about the song originally I wanted to post this but I found it too depressing:
