Believe it or not, the plaid design being on the bias was entirely accidental. When I was making the hat, I was working from the inside and could only see the blue flannel lining. I wasn't thinking about the grain at all, and when I put the hat on I just made sure the seam of the hat band was at the back of my head. I had no idea this put the crown of the hat on the bias until I looked at these pictures. Serendipity!
Brian got some great detail shots for me:

I got a kick out of the fact that my shoes matched the steps up to the Secretary's Office:
|I got them from The Gap, and they are quite comfortable.|
|No one was home.|
