Didn't you ever wear a giggle hat/bush hat when you were running about the bush with an SLR?
Indeed. The super short brim of the bush hat doesn’t really block vision like a KFF slouchie. It’s just irritating enough for someone not used to wearing hats that after a few minutes I find my hand creeping up to remove it at first opportunity.
I was thinking about it some more last night as I read about Panama hats and why some are so bloody expensive. Any time I’m just standing around in the sun, it’s likely to be a weekend and I’ll be in a T-shirt or polo and shorts (like taking the kids to the pool). But the hats I see looking good are usually worn with a suit or sports coat.
I’ll probably buy one this summer anyway. Then it will gather dust on a hook by the door because I’ll forget to bring it for the outings it would actually be useful.
