Saw someone yesterday who, from a distance, felt like was wearing a Napoleon style hat. It really piqued my curiosity.
When I got closer, it turned out they just had a really odd hairstyle worn in a way that could look like a Napoleonic hat from certain angles. Boring.
Made me think how cultural expectations reverse.
Today, wearing a hat like that would be odd but an outlandishly weird hairstyle isn’t. A century (or two) ago, no one would notice the hat, but that hairstyle would get all the heads turning.
What’s odd today and here is probably not there or then.
