I Want a Non Pretentious Straw-Hat

The other day at Costco I saw a Mexican man with a straw hat – a cowboy straw hat - with the brim turned up above the ears on each side. The hat was frayed. It was a non pretentious hat. It was meant to keep the sun off him as much as possible as he worked.

I thought about getting me a straw hat like that – that way, I could pretend to be non-pretentious.

I don't understand why the sides are rolled up. That lets the sun onto your ears and the sides of your neck.

I never thought about that. What you say makes sense. Maybe it is like that because that way, you can more easily slap the rear and of your horse--- I mean it is fashioned after cowboy hats - right?

But the kind I see of farm people working in fields around here - or used to see, that the brim comes down almost to your shoulders make more sense.
