Mens Wide Brim Hats FAQ
Wide-brim hats don't have a set name. That's because there are lots of different types out there. Some common ones include cowboy hats, sombreros, fedoras, straw hats, and golf hats.
Of course, men can wear wide-brim hats! Men have been wearing wide-brim hats to protect against the sun for centuries, which will not change anytime soon.

You can't expect your brim hat to protect you entirely from the sun. So make sure that you're also applying sunscreen regularly throughout the day.
There are various factors you should consider when choosing a wide-brim hat. First, think about what activity you're doing. For example, if you're out in a field all day, you should look for a hat with the broadest brim possible.
But, if you're playing beach volleyball, any hat brim over three inches will likely reduce your visibility. Next, think about what type of material you want. If you plan on wearing the hat in hot weather, then straw is the way to go.
Felt hats are more suitable for cold weather. In the event that you live in a place that gets cold weather for most of the year you should consider going with this hat. Lastly, consider your style. Will the hat go with your outfits?
Do you feel confident in it? These are all questions you should ask before selecting one. You should also consider hat accessories to complete the look.
