Stealth-snapped at Heinel's Clothiers in Manchester, Vermont, while the Bride was purchasing some Woolrich shirts. Heinel's has been an institution around these parts since John C. Heinel opened a tailor shop in what was then known as Factory Point Square in 1879. (For more information, here's a link to the store's Facebook page.)
If I'm not mistaken, I may have bought some tartan formalwear business here for SVAC's Scottish Winter Ball back in 1996 - which would have marked the first official event the Bride and I attended together in our pre-wedded days.
That place is jammed full of Adam-appropriate hats and I'll most likely be adding to my permanent collection from their holdings before the visit is over.

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
