"I put on this hat that I’d bought in New York that morning. It was this red hunting hat, with one of those very, very long peaks....The way I wore it, I swung the old peak way around to the back—very corny, I'll admit, but I liked it that way. I looked good in it that way." (Chapter 3)

“…but it was freezing cold and I took my red hunting hat out of my pocket and put it on, I didn’t give a damn how I looked"

“I took my old hunting hat out of my pocket while I walked and put it on. I knew I wouldn’t meet anybody that knew me, and it was pretty damp out”
