    At least what the nice folks of vintage Esquire suggested we might enjoy -

    A hat flashback! I never leave home without a Panama hat in the summer. It really does keep the head cool and nothing else so effortlessly adds a touch of style and elegance. Sigh... I yearn for the return of hats!

    If you wear one, they have returned. Every time I sport a fedora or tweed cap I get compliments. Anyone telling you that hats are passé is wrong and wrong headed. Pay them no heed. Put on a hat.

    I was just in Japan for three weeks, where I wore a sisal Napoli hat (Lock & Co.) daily. Really a terrific hat, and I like the darker, richer shade of sisal over a straw panama.

    I wear hats often. During the summer months, I sport my Panama and during the cooler times, I have two wool fedoras. I always get compliments.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a hat for me? A casual hat, and preferably cheaper than $100USD. I don't need a super authentic Panama Hat, just something that looks good and keeps the sun off my head.

    It was 100F today and I felt awful even stepping out of the car.

    I am planning on going to Vegas in August, where apparently 100F would be laughable, 110-130F can be common I read. I'll likely be wearing polos, plaid shorts, short sleeve button downs etc. I do like the shade of Dhaller's hat as well.

    I'm just teetering into a large size for a hat, but people have remarked that my head and facial features generally look "small", so most hats overwhelm my face completely, including ballcaps, so I avoid them.

    For decent, cheap, packable, breathable hats in a variety of styles, I'm partial to Sunday Afternoons (https://www.sundayafternoons.com/). Check out their men's fedoras and so on. Really sort of technical hats but also available in some urban-friendly designs. Nothing fancy, but perfect for a tourist fighting three-digit heat.

    I liked the styling of this and was about to take the plunge until I read "90% paper"
