Hat Squad


In the old days, the easiest way to spot a police detective was their signature headwear—the fedora.

These were the good old days (or the bad old days, depending on who you’re talking to), where grizzled, cigar-chomping bulls kicked ass, took names, and almost always got their man.

In San Antonio, Texas, police detectives are bringing the classic detective look back.

According to KSAT News, San Antonio Police Department homicide detectives have become local fashion icons by wearing fedoras while they work murders.

“Detective Duke brought it up to the team. We liked the idea and here we are, the hat squad,” said Sgt. Wes McCourt. “What best represents a homicide detective? It’s just classic, the fedora.”
