So what is it with that hat? The hat is a derby hat or more commonly a bowler hat. It was the hat of lower and middle-class Britain so beautifully satirised in the 70s/80s by the Two Ronnies, John Cleese and Peter Sellers. The former wearers of the hat, though, were most commonly artisans. People who make stuff, people like stone-workers & carpenters.
So what is it with that hat? I’m a consultant, a software developer, a business analyst, a project manager and technology strategy implementer and adviser. And yes I’m available for hire :-).
