Le Chapeau ou Couvre Chef

Le Chapeau ou Couvre ChefToday, Christianity remains probably the best dressed, most powerful government in the world and in France; they are everywhere, wherever there is a fat man dressed in cassocks or purple robes. Throughout the fourteenth century, for example, there were three very distinct social classes: the disguised, the well dressed and the poorly dressed. The pyramid of power indicated that disguised men ruled over the well dressed, who, in turn, subjugated the poorly dressed.

The border between the well dressed and the poorly dressed, in certain regions of France, like in the south, was unnoticeable, because it was so hot there. In the fifteenth century, there appears a fourth class, when Christopher Columbus (well dressed) asks for money from the Catholic Monarchs (disguised) to sail along with a group of low lives (poorly dressed) to conquer new lands. It is here that they discover “the unclothed”, of whom there are many and dance very well.

The unclothed, however, do not fit well in a world ruled by dress codes. So, Vestment Man covers the unclothed with fabrics and garments in an oppressive manner. Once dressed, the once unclothed will occupy the fourth, lowest place in the social sphere, under the name of “slave”. Generally speaking, the wars in the following centuries will occur between belligerents usually wearing funny disguises, especially on the head: turbans, head tefillins, helmets Roman, horns, cowboy hats, feathers, etc. As for motive, each group will use religion, land, freedom, honor, etc. But, in reality, everyone will simply be defending their particular hat fashion.

Finally, the triumph will be of the well dressed, thus power accumulated so far by the Vestment Man will finally be relegated. Kings will be forced to shake hands with each other for the rest of eternity, while clerics will be forced to pay fines for each molested child.
