104th Annual THA Dinner

The 104th Annual Headwear Association Dinner took place on April 19th, 2012 at The Central Park Boathouse Restaurant in New York City. Every single one of party guests at the 104tg Annual Headwear Association dinner was wearing a hat.

The ladies were wearing everything from wide-brimmed statement hats to the chic, modern fascinators. Like every year, gentlemen were decked out fedoras, derbys, homburgs and cowboy hats;

The Headwear Association (THA) is the oldest association in the hat trade and the oldest of its kind. Originally known as the Traveling Hat Salesmen’s Association (THSA), the organization was founded on January 30, 1908 at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City by 34 hat salesmen.
