Bucket Cap

This hat was our June 2011 monthly special.
Today I learned that even the simplest and most common items can be interesting. Let me explain...

As a regular reader of CallsignWear.com's monthly Special announcement, you know that I try to write something that's at least a little interesting or amusing about the item. You can decide for yourself whether I succeed. It turns out to be harder than you might think to write these, because after all a shirt is a shirt and a hat is a hat and there's really not much more to say. But I try to find some interesting factoid for your entertainment.

We decided that our special this month would a bucket cap, which if you don't know, is a soft cotton hat with a brim that goes all the way around. Some people also call them fishing hats. I racked my brain (the efforts we go through for you!) trying to think of something to write about the bucket cap but drew a blank. To the internet! Wikipedia is my go-to source for factoids, and they didn't let me down. I learned that bucket hats "are favored by glider pilots, who require shade in their cockpits but cannot wear wide-brimmed hats because they must be able to see in all directions." Did you know that that are called giggle hats in Australia? I certainly didn't, mate. Or that they are popular among elders in Tanzania?

And so, I learned several absolutely useless but interesting factoids that will waste space in my brain. And now they are wasting space in your brain too. Although you now know what to get for that hard-to-buy-for-Tanzanian-elder on your Christmas list!

100% brushed cotton twill. Sewn eyelets.
