Hat poll

I enjoy hats and own several. I have over half dozen straw ones, a few caps and assorted winter hats. My lastest additions are a straw, decorative cowboy hat (Kmart) and a seagrass, crushable hat (festival purchase). Mostly I use them for sun & wind protection rather than a fashion statement. But I also find them fun to wear. My husband rarely wears a hat, only in the winter when it's cold.

I have several different colored caps to wear when I work in the yard, am generally out in the sun a lot, or whatever, but I don't wear them often. I also have a cowboy hat from a western store that I've ended up not wearing, and two cheaper straw cowboy hats that I wear on occasion. I also have an Aussie hat.

Wouldn't leave home without one - that tropical sun can be murder! I even wear a swim cap when snorkeling to keep from burning the top of my head (maybe *you* want to put SPF 40 in your hair - I don't!) Rolled Eye

Ditto what tjcox said. Having the top of your head peel from a sunburn is not a pleasant experience!

I tend to wear an "Aussie" style with a wide flat brim. I've a couple of those. Either that or one of those floppy "bush" hats. My lucky hunting hat is a bright orange one of those. I think the deer see it and come out to find out what that funny looking thing is... Rolled Eye

I don't ordinarily wear a hat but I've been thinking about buying one at this site. http://www.ushist.com/victorian_clothing.htm I kind of like both the lawman's hat and the mexican priests hats. Steve

I wear a hat almost all the time when I'm outside by doctor's order. I need a wide brim hat to cover my ears to prevent the recurrence of skin cancer there. Sometimes I can get away with a cap like on a rainy or very cloudy day. This topic leads into one of my pet peeves: when did it become okay for men to wear hats, caps, etc. indoors? I hate to go into a restaurant and see most of the men sitting at tables with their hats on.

Having had skin cancer, I don't go anyplace with out a hat, and long sleeve, and my legs covered. I even have half mitts to cover the backs of my hands when I'm outside. Just ask Dave what I look like driving in the car with him to a festival. (heheheheheee) bundled up like a mummy. Shalom, FF For those of you who are concerned there are several companies that make a range of sun proof clothes like Solumbra. Or for the sewers in the group there is the fabric "Solarweave".

We are hardly in an era of politeness and good manners but a search at Google brought up a lot of pages containing information about hat ettiquete. One claims that President Kennedy was the first president not to wear a hat outdoors. Many of the sites reccomend proper hat ettiquete such as taking hats off indoors (for men).
