Washington D.C. in the middle of the Great Depression. It had to be a real hotseat for the President to flee to the oven-like humidity of Warm Springs, GA for respite. Look closely at the photos of him relaxing at the "Little White House" and you see he's in hat like this. Soft midweight cotton twill with a wicking sweatband, dapper leather band and 2½" brim for shelter from that sweltering Georgia sun. Imported.
