Storm clouds of the End Times

My Dorfman-Pacific straw hat, with the Stetson pheasant feathered band, is about to die. The toyo straw is breaking down, and will soon be unwearable.

This has been a great hat, a true 'signature' hat for me, rivaling my Kierkegaard ball cap. Anticipating the inevitable, I have been searching for a replacement for a few years, but with no luck. The combination of pinched crown, a soft and fairly open weave that breathes easily (plus vent holes), and a broad shade-producing brim with thin band, appears to be a rarity.

The search will now intensify. It must.
