Gustav Mahler (1860-1911): "Tradition ist die Weitergabe des Feuers und nicht die Anbetung der Asche."

"Tradition is about passing on the flame, and not the worshipping of ashes"

A few points here: first the Hetherington Top Hat story appears, on close examination, to be an urban myth and it might well have been another hatter who first devised silk toppers in England (more on this in my Book III).

Secondly, Lock's have discovered that it was not William Coke who first commissioned the coke or bowler but another member of the Coke family.Moreover, the Bowler Brothers were not involved in the origination of the coke-bowler hat.

Thirdly, in fact, the master of the hunr and the professional staff wear their hunt cap ribbons down and everyone else wears them sewn up.

Something else missing from the story is the 'original' Coke was not personal use by the Coke family but for their gamekeepers.
