T-Al,

Thank you for the link on serious sun hats.

I am seriously considering jobs in the Middle East (e.g., Oman in the desert) and that looks pretty effective.

Cheers,

Gypsy

The CAT hat was free, the lawn-mowing hat was about 6 bucks at Wal-Mart and the "bash hat" was on sale and a bargain at $480.

Good grief, I had no idea those "bash hats" cost so much. I guess you have to carry it around with you when you park your bike.

That is pretty high. My "brain bucket" cost $120, but it's not fancy.

Arai makes a fine helmet, though I prefer my Shoei.

The problem with the CAT hat is that it doesn't protect the ears or the back of the neck.

I like the hat. But if it bothers you, get some cool sunglasses and you should look just fine. (as long as you don't wear those pastel plaid pants)

It looks closer to cantlogin's lawn mower hat, only clean. How about these pants? Be kind, that's Payne Stewart. He's looking down from above.

Dawg, I think the hat is fine and you are one cool dude so no worries. I second the idea on the sunglasses

You know, for some reason that hat reminds me of the late, great Hunter S. Thompson. Here he is as portrayed by Johnny Depp, one of my favorite actors.

Are his pants shoved down in his socks? If so, I guess I just don't get golf attire.... I don't mind the pants as long as they come down to the ankles...(i set myself up on this one didn't i?)

I really don't know. You don't find anyone wearing those at a club. A couple of pros wear them just to look different. A style worn back in Bobby Jone's era. I wear mainly blue jeans in the winter or khaki pants. Shorts the rest of the season.
