What is a good wide-brimmed hat to wear without looking like a poser?

I live on the east coast and the sun wants to hecking skin me alive. However:
>not western enough for a cowboy hat
>not mexican enough for a somberero
>not military enough for a boonie hat
>don’t even bring up a fedora
The only hat anyone around me wears is a baseball cap and in addition to not keeping the sun off they look like shit.
I had one of those covered hats like the Stormchaser hat from Fallout but everybody kept calling me Lawrence of Arabia.

    ive given up and just gone for a boonie hat. got one without any frills like pockets and it looks more touristy than military

      Well kinda depends of what the rest of your looks like. Bucket hat is a good suggestion. I’d just go for the cowboy hat and stop giving a shit.

      bolero

      Bolero is a good suggestion if you can pull it off. Looks a bit to instagram-hipstery for me, but it can be a nice look.

      That’s just too much tourist vibe.

    People are going to keep calling you something for your hat choice regardless, better to just embrace it.

    Take the bucket hat pill. I wear those Adidas ones all the time and no one says anything. I too am repulsed by baseball caps. Idk why that’s the only acceptable hat to wear these days. I’d wear a fedora if I could but I’m sure that would elicit mockery.

    So? Stop being a pussy and roll with it.

        You wear a wide-brimmed hat primarily because you want to protect your face, ears, shoulders and hair from sun damage. Choose a style that you like and matches your style, then wear it with confidence.

    Just pick the hat style you like the most and go with that. heck the plebs and their baseball caps which do heck all to protect you from the sun.
