Only Alexander McQueen could have drawn me blocks out of my way on such a frigid afternoon. The salesman was masquerading as Johnny Depp circa Pirates of the Caribbean. I wanted to gossip about his latest wench, but I stayed focused and found a simple bucket-shaped hat made of black suede. My pirate/shop clerk assured me of how “bloody great” it looked on me. And the silver monogram reminded me that the hat cost almost as much as my rent. But for $610, I want something more outrageously McQueen than this. 417 W. 14th St., nr. Ninth Ave.; 212-645-1797.
