22. According to info I found, it was a gift from the St. Thomas More society...

According to Walshslaw, Scaliaís headgear is actually a custom-made replica of the hat in Hans Holbeinís famous 1527 portrait of St. Thomas More, the Catholic martyr and patron saint of lawyers. The website said the hat was a gift from St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Va.

5. Here...

The twitterverse is alive with tweets about Justice Scaliaís headgear for todayís inauguration. At the risk of putting all the fun speculation to an end . . . The hat is a custom-made replica of the hat depicted in Holbeinís famous portrait of St. Thomas More. It was a gift from the St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Virginia. We presented it to him in November 2010 as a memento of his participation in our 27th annual Red Mass and dinner.

And Ratzy is evil.

That hat actually doesn't look ridiculous on him it's a natural fit. And now he doesn't have to change to go host an inquisition.
