It's been 4 years since we've had a hat challenge, so I thought it's about time we run it back with inclusion of the SW&D crowd.

Brimmed hats can be tough, as evidenced by the vast mountains of m'lady memes, failed Indiana Jones homages, and general damning photographic internet archives of mankind's last half century. However, if anyone can rise above the plaid trilbied masses, it is here.

For this challenge, the rules are that entries must be from this year, non-baseball/5-panel or watch cap. That's it. Westerns and buckets welcome.

The contest will run from today through 5/14/2021.

Some inspiration from SF members:

Since my brown Christys homburg was already featured in the intro to this challenge (thank you @d4nimal), I’ll just post some pictures here of my flat cap.
It was expertly made by UK based Bertie Sambrook from fabrics I provided. The Harris Tweed was sourced from independent weaver Urgha Loom Shed.
