Yep. I need a hat. I work at a place that is a collection of offices and buildings that span 120 acres. I usually don’t walk beyond the immediate 40 acres, but still, that is a great deal of time in the hot sun. That means my bald head is catching direct laser beams of skin cancer inducing sunshine. As it is, I see my dermatologist more often than my dentist. On any given day I am walking between buildings at least five times, often much more. And sometimes I leave my 40 acres and venture into the next block of buildings.
Yet, what sort of hat goes well with dress slacks, long sleeve dress shirts and a tie? In Florida.
You are right. None.Do I want to resort to the old guy hats, something big and made of straw, like you would wear in the garden? No, not me. But I am not fond of my dermatologist zapping the top of the my head every few months. And sunscreen is sort of a pain too. I use it, but it has it’s own issues.
It would be nice I’ve thought, if someone made simple lightweight designer hats just for men in Florida to protect their heads. There are many men younger than thirty that for one reason or another have skin heads, and they need protection too.
I took a look at some of the hats in the local Target and didn’t really see anything that would not make me look like a dork. Or worse, some old guy.
No, actually, none of them seem less dorky.
