What Can a Hair Challenged Man Wear for a Hat While in Italy.?

What kinds of hats do men wear to protect heads anyway?
Husband does not want to wear fishing hat, and certainly not a baseball cap, while in rome.
so, fashion police....
What do men wear for sun protection.
thanks for any helpful answers!
Only 3 more days!!!

Berets - - gondolier style (in Venice, of course) - - but that's a sibtle distinction, I think. My father-inlaw bought two last month in Venice. I don't wear hats, but he seemed to think that he knows hat quality and he was very pleased with the price and quality.

Best wishes,

Rex

A touring cap sometimes called a driving cap.

Thanks for the suggestions.
How about a pith helmet?
Father-in-law wore a touring cap, husband always wanted an excuse to buy one.

Hey Nancy, is this not the same husband that is leaving you? Let him worry about his own head, he's not your problem anymore! But you have a great trip!

I usually wear a miter when I wander the streets of Rome. It keeps the sun off my once hisute pate. A skull cap looks great for an early evening stroll.

Kangol makes some nice European-looking caps ("driving" style). Try the website for the "Hats in the Belfry" chain of stores.

I'm a baldy and wouldn't think of going out for a day under the Italian sun without something to prevent sunburn. My even-balder father always wore a beret in Europe (and sometimes in the U.S.). Takes a certain self-confidnece to pull that off, which he had but I lack.

Oh Poo!
a few hrs ago this site absorbed my witted and delightful response to the last posters. :->
Oh well, try again.
Just curious,
Yes indeed , it is the same husband.
I would be hard pressed , (and crazy) to come up with a second husband so quickly!
He buys the hat,
I only posted cause you guys share such a wealth of info, on everything to train schedules, to what to wear with pink jogging suits!
Dear J.P.
My husband attended years of Catholic School in the mid 1950's and early 1960's, need I say more?
A miter will not work,(but he secretly desires one, and wishes to wander the roman streets as Father Sarducci (SNL)
Maybe stop at that famous store that sells red and purple socks?)
But, Bill, you are the 2nd one to mention a beret, and he could pull it off.
so, maybe that will be the ticket!
