Hats have always been important, culturally speaking. They used to be associated with rich people, who would then “tip off their hat” as a sign of respect. These days they’re widely accessible and pretty much everyone can – and should – get a proper hat to finish their outfit.
Of course, as with everything in life, there’s a certain price category of hats where mere mortals such as you and I can only dream of. Let’s take a look at some ridiculously expensive hats.
Saint Laurent Black Fur Trapper Hat
This looks like something only a hipster with low self-esteem would wear, but I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be able to afford the $2,243 price tag attached to this monstrosity.
Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean Fedora
The famous fedora MJ wore in the Billy Jean music video will cost you about $18,274. That’s … honestly not too bad considering some other hats on this list.
Optimo Panama Straw Hat
$20,000 for a straw hat might seem like a bit much, but that’s the price you put on class.
