Men's attire for touring

Jump to last reply

I realize that "style" questions usually pertain to the fairer sex, but apparently at my advanced age (just north of 60), I have some questions. I'm not concerned about wearing jeans, slacks, or shorts during daytime touring (DW despairs of my lack of concern), and I have no qualms about wearing sandals (although I will take real shoes simply to appease DW), I am concerned about head attire. In the US I routinely wear golf/baseball caps to protect my balding pate from the scorching sun. Although I'm sure that I will be identified as an American tourist as soon as locals spot me, I don't wish to offend at the drop of a hat, so to speak. What shall I do? We'll be in Italy (Rome to north of Rome) and Spain (Andalusia and Madrid) in September and October this year. What kind of hat would be suitable? Any other advice?

TIA,

Sam, aka Knoxvillecouple
