I fell in love with the leather hat when a buddy brought one on a camping trip 15 years ago. He showed me how it folds, it compresses into a small zip lock bag (or backpack), and poofs back into shape. It can be drug in the water while fishing on the lack, put back on, and cool the body through evaporation. It can be mashed flat on a shelf and poof back into shape. And it always looks great.

Took me a few years, but my wife saw a stand of Barmah hats at Mule Days in Calvary Georgia (a phenomenally large festival with so many vendors that they often have multiple stations in various locations). I finally found my "go-to" hat.

Interestingly enough, about 6 months later, my parents returned from Austrailia and had brought me a black version of the same leather hat! Sadly, it's just too small. So I keep Blackie in my office for emergency rain or snow days.

I've recently overhauled my wardrobe simplifying it down to T-shirts (mostly for gym or weekend wear), polo's, dress shirts from light to dark/patterns. sweaters with only 1 hoodie, and 2 casual sports coats from gap, and a grey suit, for which a have a interchangeable brown jacket. I also made a note to buy some younger stylish pieces for the weekends when I go out. as far as shoes its Clarks, Rockport brown leather, or a pair of casual canvas shoes, and Nike's for the gym or sporty activities. I'm still on the lookout for a nice casual boot for riding my motorcycle, that's within a $100 max price range any suggestions?

John, 

I honestly couldn't have said it better myself! Nothing to add.

I have actually begun the same thing as Mitchell has. I have decided to wear more polo's and khakis instead of tees

I really like this clothing style, I was wondering if anyone knew of a place I could inexpensively duplicate.

Scott, that is a truly disturbing image. How difficult would it be to at least make an attempt to dress respectfully for a funeral?
Comment by Scott L Ferrell on August 2, 2010 at 9:27am
I do not know if this is the site to vent, but I have to go somewhere. I was at a funeral service the other day, black suit, white shirt, black tie, sapphire tie pin, black wingtips, I was surrounded by full grown men in shorts and flipflops, at a funeral. Would it have killed them to wear big boy pants and shoes for two hours?
