MANual Minute

Gay Talese, Man of Many Hats

The legendary writer and MANual correspondent takes us inside his headwear sanctum.

Gilt MANual contributor Gay Talese owns more fedoras than most of us have pairs of shoes. (And don’t get me started on how many pairs of shoes he has.)  Josh and I recently paid a visit to Gay’s Upper East Side townhouse for a tour of his collection, and came away with a few pointers about how to care for—and wear—that most classic of finishing touches. Check out the video below, and be sure to shop Nick Wooster Outside the Box on Gilt MAN, October 3rd, to start building your own fedora collection.
