POTD - צוויי פיילישער רבי'ס

L-R, Reb Itzikel Of Amnshinon-Boro Park; Reb Yankel Alter, then son of the Gerrer Rebbe, currently Gerrer Rebbe. Reb Itzikel was a nephew of Reb Shimele Amshinover (who was in Japan and Shanghai during WW2) and had a small shtiebel on 15th Avenue in Boro Park. You could've lived around the corner your whole life and never seen or heard of him. That's how low-key he was.

And here's a sefer, recently published, about his father zt"l and older brother hy"d:

your style of questioning was also asked by R YD of Belz from the holy reb Shulem Stropkever, why he is wearing a hat not a Kolpik, as his family wore in Gallicia
on which the holy straightforward Stropkover answered very straightforward
This is the way I like it
that closed the discussion quick

Sholom and brocha
In Congress Poland, it was the norm for all the chasidim to wear kashketlach during the week. Proper hats were worn only by Rebbe's, Rabbonum and other klie kodesh. There are many pictures of the Bais Yisroel Ztl wearing a kashketal before the churban.
After the War it seems the styles changed, and by Polisher chasidim hats were now worn.

"Very starnge to see a BM bucHER (even rebbish) wearing a kolpik when his dad wears a spodik. Never seen that in my life. Come to think of it it ITS starnge"
