Mulligan tosses Stephen his "Latin quarter hat" as the young men prepare to begin their day outside the tower, and in Proteus Stephen, reminiscing about his time in Paris, thinks of the counter-cultural poses that both he and Mulligan are striking in the world: "My Latin quarter hat. God, we simply must dress the character." (Haines too dresses informally in a "soft grey hat.")
