In serious need of some hip head wear? Go south on the Drag, and just before it devolves into a pool of fast food joints, look for Vertigo, a cubbyhole of a shop -- recently relocated from its original Sixth Street digs -- that has hats for just about any occasion. There are ski caps, bowlers, fedoras, pork pies, and a whole wall devoted to cowboy hats that the employees steam and shape to your liking. They are also the only store in town that carry the indestructible, stylish but pricey Shady Brady, the first hat we?ve ever seen that comes with a one-year warranty.
