..being anger and red embarrasment. With Wickhams story of his shabby treatment seeming a little too freely told to almost a complete stranger, and the fact that Darcy is the perpetrator of said misfortune, and the fact of the hat touching first -most unusual in one with good reason to detest another - it leads to a suspicion of something possibly amiss somewhere.
I also think Bingley was so focussed on Jane, and the incident over in an instant, he really notices nothing. The ladies were already engaged in conversation with someone he didn't know, hadn't been introduced to, so possibly good manners led to not wanting to interrupt that. If Wickham's story has truth, then he should be a very angry man inside, despite his claims he was only behaving to protect the memory of Darcy's father and wouldn't engage in confrontation because of it. He should really be the one to walk off in a huff, surely? A strange situation. Elizabeth seems to have tossed a two-headed coin in what to beleieve.
