You sure of that?

A journalist of the New York American, Blakely Hall, made Wall famous, proclaiming him in 1888, "King of the Dudes," for having won the "Battle of the Dudes" against Robert "Bob" Hilliard, another sartorial dude when, during the blizzard of 1888, he strode into a bar clad in gleaming boots of patent leather that went to his hips.[4] Nevertheless, some historians still consider it was Hilliard who won that dude battle.[8]
