About Farmer Straw Hats
Farmhands love denim dungarees, work boots, and farmer straw hats for very good reasons. The clothes are comfortable and durable, and the hats have broad brims to shield the wearers from the harsh sun. The woven construction also allows good air flow to keep the head cool. Farmer straw hats are not just popular in America. Farmers in the Asian bamboo and rice fields love straw hats, although the style is different. The conical shape of these hats protects them from rain in addition to the sun. The popular Stetson straw cowboy hat has a marked dent at the top, with the edges turned up slightly. The hat is ideal for riding around a ranch as well as for putting the finishing touches on a costume for a Western-themed party. If you are looking for a vintage straw hat among the vast inventory on eBay, you can consider a fedora style for a man or an elegant wide-brimmed piece for a lady. Fancy or plain, the straw hat is up to the challenge for farmers and anyone else who spends time in the sun.
