I am bald enough to need a hat, and old enough to want something with a little class. So I have started a hat collection.
Right now my favorite pieces of clothing are two hats...
The dress hat is this one.
This hat is hard to pack, and I like to travel. I have a canvas "safari" hat that has been with me through many trips in several countries across a couple of continents now. It even survived getting mugged (the idiot holding the pistol didn't know that the hat is the most valuable thing I had... what is more important than protecting the top of your head from getting burned?).
It is beaten up and showing wear, but it still wears well and protects me from the sun. I love that hat.
