Hat week continues with this picture of a man in a Western Hat. The hat appears to be a straw hat. He has an overall western style to his dress and appearance. I am not even sure what you call the style tie he has, but you don's see those any more.
I have been enjoying the comments and it looks like I am not the only one who wishes hats would make a comeback. I think many men would like to wear a hat, but are afraid of being ridiculed. One of the things I have notices while traveling in Africa is that it is a place where you can wear the hat you always wanted to without feat of being ridiculed. I saw people wearing the military style caps that have the canvas flaps in the back to protect the neck. I saw the Australian style hat, with the side brim pinned up to the hat. There is a guy that wears the little round hat that looks like a pill box with no brim at all. There were even some people wearing huge brimmed cowboy hats. So, I guess people go to Africa sometimes to wear the hat of their dreams.
