i thought the hat and the gloves and stuff were just examples of anansi's impeccable style and smoothness etc...whereas the passing the hat thing is symbolic of fathers passing on their mantle (as it where) to their sons, and an acknowledgment of fat charlie's personal growth through the course of the story...at least, that's my opinion Smile

to be able to wear the hat, it meant Fat Charlie had to have an attitude of confidence about himself that his father always had
