If you are after the Junior Wells hats's look ;-) There is a store on
Maxwell Street next to Jim's Original or a couple of doors up that have some
.... And I've been to the New Openair Market and seen those every time:
Bright colored, crossed between Joe Friday's and a Mellon ...  I do believe
there is a photo on the web of the Boutique front ...

Yep! from my vault:

It could be a thrift store I don't recall but I saw something similar last

Maybe Chicagoans 'zellers can fill you in ...  Twist, Steve,  Thomas, Fats ?

PS Over here the most common Blues hat is a "bald head with a pony tail" ;-)
.... If you feel like surprising everyone get an Australian "crocodile
Dundee" hat and (note that you may induce some heckler to yell "SRV Rules",
I've seen it once, and it wasn't even a Blues band ;-) ...
