Heads Up The Pitch: My husband wore my large floppy straw hat yesterday while grilling. He looked utterly ridiculous and still managed to get sunburn. The jaunty Havana Hat from Sunday Afternoons (asi/90134) would have been a better idea as it offers UPF 50 protection. It’s packable, so this is great for leisure and travel. Suggest it for souvenir shops too. For more info, click here: http://bit.ly/1PCgAgf. The Bottom Line: For the sharp-dressed man.
