More precisely, I need a hat. But when I need such thing, I might just as well want something I really like, right?
Right. Right now I really like this early 19th century embroidered straw Swiss hat from the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Although I prefer the shape of this one. And I'd even more like it to have some kind of a crown, to more or less work as a modern hat as well. So maybe something like this one. Or this 18th century bergére.
But I really, really like the embroidered brim of the Swiss one. That'd make a hat I could wear without feeling I have put a basket or placemat on my head. :D
So now I need to get a straw hat with wide brim. The embroidery I could do myself.
