self trim featuring a very nice ribbon overlay.
If you need to add a linen walking hat
to your hat rack, Goorin's come up with something new this season. Called The Cape
, this stingy brim stroller features a crushable linen body and an A-crown that measures 3 3/4 inches high. Finished with cotton lining and sweatband, other details include all-over contrast stitching and side eyelets plus a solid cotton underbrim. For a somewhat more casual linen fedora
, turn once again to Tommy Bahama whose all-linen hat with its 2 1/2 inch brim and contrast trim also contains a recipe in the tip sticker for a Made in the Shade
drink called the "Caribbean Pain Killer." Hey, that could come in handy!
Of necessity, some walking hats
are rain hats too, and Stetson has a few from which to choose, including The Andes
, a pinch front, snap-brim hat
in a water repellent cotton/poly blend fabric, as well as the ever popular Gable
, a rain hat
with a 2 1/8 inch brim and leather band trim. You can read the top-rated reviews for this hat yourself:
Just bought the khaki color for summer. I love the turned down brim look. The quality of the hat is very good.
One of the best looking hats around. Its proportions are flattering and it's great in the rain.
Just bought another!
The Stetson Gable is a great hat. It fits well, and is perfect for sprinkly weather.
Very pleased with it, it is everything I expected it to be.
I love it! It actually fits and it looks good on my head. I wear it all the time!
Sits well; looks good and priced right - rain or shine.
If you're in the market for a bucket-style walking hat
, Scala offers one in water repellant poplin, about which one satisfied customer says: "This is my second Scala cotton bucket hat. I do consulting for international aid agencies in tropical countries (mostly Laos and Vietnam) and find the hat perfect for this kind of weather: light and cool, offers good sun protection, and will even shed a small rain. You can squash it anywhere in your suitcase or bag and it will always recover its shape which, by the way, is very attractive."
