Walker Evans, Subway Portrait

This Walker Evans photograph is in the collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The period of the photograph, 1938-41, was well before that January, 1960 fateful day in the hat business when John F. Kennedy took off his hat during his inaguration thus signaling a change in headwar fashion that has never been fully reversed. This couple on the subway, like virtually anyone in those days, wear their fashionable beret and fedora as comfortably and naturally as they wear any other apparel. His hat, the pinch-crown, snap-brim, fedora with approximately a 2 5/8 inch brim was de rigueur in the 1930s and 1940s.
