That is the worst advertising photo I've seen for a long time.  :rofl  I'm sure there are better looking models in your house somewhere.

I'd have one. I have three colors when it comes sun tanning, white, burnt and peeling.

I like the style but not the dark colour. No need to tell everybody it gets hot in Perth all the rally attendees now know that.

+1 on the dark colour.

Maybe the model makes it look dopier than it is   >:()

but I'd prefer something with maybe a smaller brim or shallower crown so that it didn't look like I was trying to emulate a button mushroom.    |-i

1) Make Pockey the model  :hatwave :rockon
2) Tried it on in Perth  :thumbs
3) Ulysses had one for the Mildura AGM which had a mesh section all the way around the top to allow for air flow. It worked  :thumbsup :hatwave

Could you do a one off sombrero type for me please  :grin

I notice the male equivalent of the

"resting bitch face" is very common.

The actress in the photo actually coined the phrase of the look of one's face when naturally at rest, but perceived by others to be looking a bit bitchy  :o

Thinking about its use 3/4's of the year we will probably use the cap - It's the other quarter of the year when its farkling hot  :H that the need for bucket hat will arise.
 :think1 Me thinks change its colour to white, to reflect heat and look for the type that has the mesh band to allow airflow  :thumb

Apparently i've had a resting bitch face since primary school  :crackup .Seriously.
I still get comments at work to this day.Nothing wrong...just getting on with work.
The hat would look good in orange.I'm not a fan of the colour but i think it would be a bit cooler.

don't use mesh as it is not sun proof.

As a regular bucket hat user and living in Farking Hot Townsville I can honestly say that black hats don't really make that big a difference ..... if it is hot ..... it's HOT . colour made no difference to my bald head.

I submitted a vote of keep looking ONLY because the brim seems a little steep. Not brimming out as such.

But apart from that its fine ..... although an orange Hat with black trim would look cool
