|Subject: Re: A hat for summer in Italy|
Hi, Paul. I would suggest a straw hat -- for a man *or* a woman. Make
sure there aren't spaces between the weaves. I found that out when I went
to an outdoor wedding a couple of years ago and was facing straight into
the sun. It shined brightly through the holes, and that was very
annoying. Now, I have a favorite straw hat with a wide brim and no
holes. It even has an inner band to make sure the hat fits snugly and
resists blowing off. This is very important to me, as I have a small head
and it's difficult to find a hat that fits. I found my hat at a golf
course pro shop, so you might want to try there.
I'll be in Italy in July, and I'm sure going to use my straw hat there!
