The laid back hat
A bucket hat (also known as a fisherman's hat, bob hat or crusher hat) is a headwear design with a wide and downwards sloping brim that extends 360 degrees around the outer perimeter. Typically, the hat is made from heavy-duty cotton fabric such as denim or canvas, with two metal eyelets placed on each side of the hat for ventilation.
Introduced around 1900, bucket hats were originally made from wool felt or tweed cloth, these hats were traditionally worn by Irish farmers and fishermen as protection from the rain, because the lanolin from the raw wool made these hats naturally waterproof. The modern bucket hat is derived from a tropical hat made from olive drab cotton that was issued to the US Army during the Vietnam War. These lightweight hats became popular among civilians for use in sports such as fishing, and as sun protection. The older tweed Irish walking hat remained popular among professional men until the 1970s, and was notably worn by Sean Connery's character in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
The hat became popular with rappers in the 1980s and remained part of the street style and urban fashion into the 1990s. More recently, it has re-emerged as a fashion catwalk item after being sported by celebrities such as Rihanna.
Because you live a flexible life
