Old soldiers never die. They fade into yard hats.
This is a hybrid hat. The leather band with pheasant feathers came off a 'lawn-deceased' Stetson straw I had many years ago (purchased at the flagship Neiman-Marcus store in downtown Dallas in the early 1990s). This hat came from REI. It's made of 'Toyo Straw', which isn't straw at all, but rolled paper.
I usually wear it backwards, so the torn brim is to the back. I'm cool that way.
