I am sure there is some sort of rule against them now.

Lol, no rule against making or wearing a pressman’s hat in the pressroom, YET! With the newspaper shrinking in width the paper hats can no longer accommodate a man’s head, but we can still create hats for children. With the pressroom enclosed in glass and doors the need for a hat is not there as the ink mist stays out of the quiet room.

I stopped making them back when the Times first changed the web width when we still had lead plates........big head.
