That's the thing about most hats - they look goofy as hell. My "kids"
- -18-22-25 - and spouse cringe when I wore a Tilley - I lost mine and
need to get a new one (and no, they are not guaranteed against loss for
life, only for a year or two. They ARE guaranteed against damage for
life, however). But then they make fun of almost any hat I choose
