Hello,

I would like to reproduce this look for my 80s tribute band - I prefer this hat, but have had trouble identifying it.

It looks somewhat like a bobby's hat, somewhat like a pith helmet. Any help here would be appreciated - and if you know where I could get this look inexpensively (this is for an occasional use costume).

Thank you!
