Looking for bucket hat in tan cloth

I'm looking for one of the old tan colored Bucket hats in cotton poplin with the navy & burgundy band. I've found several (incl. one on Orvis) but am disappointed that many appear to be made from some hideous sounding material called "microfibre". The one's that are listed as "cotton" aren't really. And that's what I am looking for, Cotton, or if I must a decent blend that isn't of some horrible fibre or with a sheen or whatnot. Any suggestions on where to find a good one? Here's what I've found: http://www.dadshats.com/harhisbu.html http://www.countrygentleman.com/images/5950123.jpg http://www.millerhats.com/bucket_index/bucket1.html I wonder if Del Monico's has 'em? Maybe Meyer has something decent?

Ah, I've just recalled this one http://www.cablecarclothiers.com/page56.html which someone kindly pointed out, in another thread and in response to my question, might've been made by Country Gentleman. The odd (or rare) thing about the Cable Car hat is that it's actually sized. I wonder if this design is still (or was ever) popular in the UK. If so, I have yet to find it on any British maker's site.
