A dandy stands in discomfort as he attempts to put on a new hat, which is clearly too small for him. He wears a waistcoat, long jacket and heeled shoes. A small dog walks beside him, carrying an umbrella on it's back, looking up at the gentleman. The humorously named 'Mc.Tight Hatter', hat shop can be seen in the background to the right.
